Windsor, California Issues Request for Qualifications for Major Civic Center Project
With this RFQ the Town of Windsor seeks a developer with excellent qualifications to help us realize our Civic Center vision. The selected developer will be expected to deliver a mixed-use development that achieves the Town’s goals for Block A of the Civic Center Visioning Plan, in the furtherance of the Civic Center Master Plan. The selection process consists of two parts.
Part 1 requires submittal of a statement of qualifications, from which the Town will select a short list of developer candidates.
Part 2 consists of an interview and submittal of a more detailed proposal in response to an RFP.
This RFQ grows out of Windsor’s plans for a vital downtown area, including rethinking its Civic Center area north of the Town Green. The Station Area/Downtown Specific Plan, adopted in 2012, https://www.townofwindsor.com/DocumentCenter/View/14025, established a framework for an expanded downtown core. The Windsor Civic Center Visioning Plan (February 2017), http://townofwindsor.com/DocumentCenter/View/19518, provides more detailed and current urban design guidance for land north of the Town Green. The RFQ pertains to Block A, as defined in the Visioning Plan, a 0.64-acre parcel that currently includes the Huerta Gymnasium and surface parking.
