Northwest Michigan Council of Governments / Framework For Our Future

Request for Proposals: Corridor Concept Drawings

The NWMCOG is soliciting proposals from qualified consultants to develop a piece rate cost for corridor concept drawings. Initially, NWMCOG anticipates ordering up to 12 concept drawings for communities within the Grand Vision region of Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Kalkaska, and Wexford Counties. The drawings will consist of an image/drawing of existing conditions and a final development vision of future conditions based on public input and Grand Vision principals.

The chosen consultant will be expected to attend the corridor design visualization workshops and incorporate public input into the final drawings. The NWMCOG welcomes and highly encourages consultants to participate in the workshop and lead discussions in order to truly represent participants’ visions.

The audience of the Framework for Our Future, which will contain the final corridor concept drawings, will be the public, local government officials, and other community stakeholders. A primary focus of the perspectives is to show what is practical and realistic in each community if Grand Vision principals are implemented. Corridor concept drawings will also inform policy analysis and strategy development.

The corridor design visualization workshops will take place in October, 2013 and the consultant will complete the perspectives by November, 2013. 

RFP written questions due by August 23, 2013 at 4 p.m. EST. Proposals due by August 30, 2013 at 4 p.m. EST. One reproducible and four copies of all proposals must be delivered to the NWMCOG.
