RFP: Local Waterfront Revitalization Program, Orleans County

The County of Orleans, working in partnership with the New York State Department of State, is requesting proposals from qualified planning firms to prepare a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) for seven municipalities (the towns of Albion, Gains, Ridgeway, and Shelby, and the Villages of Albion and Holley) located along the Erie Canal. The LWRP will address issues such as waterfront development, walkability, vibrancy, transportation infrastructure, utilization of underutilized canal-side properties, connection of downtowns to Canal, increased recreational opportunities, and agricultural benefits. New York State MWBE goals apply to this project and consultants are encouraged to subcontract, form joint ventures and partnerships, and collaborate to assemble a consultant team that satisfies MWBE goals of 15% WBE and 15% MBE.
