Following completion and adoption of the Downtown Strategic Plan and Streetscape Plan in February 2014, the City Council desired to engage the design services of a streetscape/engineering professional to assist the City with the implementing and construction of the public infrastructure elements identified in the Downtown Strategic and Streetscape Plan.

The City conducted a request for qualifications and request for proposal process and received and reviewed eight submittals for streetscape/engineering professional design services and determined that the proposal received from Design Workshop met the City’s needs for this project.

The following tasks are associated with completing this project:

  • Project kickoff and work session
  • Programming
  • Concept Design
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Final Concepts and Presentation
