Download MASTER PLANNING RFP

I PURPOSE:
The intent and purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to establish a contract through competitive negotiation for conceptual master planning and design assistance for the Town of Glen Lyn, the Town of Pearisburg, and the Town of Rich Creek in Giles County, Virginia. These services are an important component of a business district revitalization planning grant that the towns have received through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The planning grant activities will allow the towns to complete the preparatory work necessary to pursue additional CDBG funding to implement the physical development projects identified through the course of the planning process.

II BACKGROUND:

This region takes its name from the New River, the nation’s oldest and the world’s second oldest river, and includes the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and the City of Radford. The New River flows through Giles County from south to north, passing by all three towns. The Towns are near other outdoor recreation assets as well, including the Appalachian Trail, the Jefferson National Forest, and a variety of local trail systems and parks. All three towns are small (population from 100 to 2,800 residents each) with a Mayor and Town Council, as well as administrative staff.

III STATEMENT OF NEED:
The Towns are undertaking a community based effort to invest in the redevelopment of the downtown districts in their towns, focused around outdoor recreation amenities, and strategies that can help businesses in the towns to maximize the economic benefits from visitors to these attractions. As part of these efforts, Giles County (hereinafter, the County) is serving as the administrator for a planning grant from DCHD. Through the planning grant process, community stakeholders will create an economic restructuring plan for the towns, to include specific projects the communities can undertake to improve their downtown districts and encourage business development related to outdoor recreation and tourism.

  • The Individual and Family Services Plan
  • The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths

  • Treatment plans from each service provider
  • Monthly and quarterly progress notes from each service provider
