The goal of the Wells Goodfellow Neighborhood Green Space Project – Phase I is to convert ~7 noncontiguous acres of vacant and abandoned lots to a passive recreation space that absorbs stormwater and provides a community open space amenity. The community green space location was determined through a combination of GIS-based computer modeling and community planning and participatory mapping workshops. The resultant location lies within a water problem area prone to combined sewer overflows, basement backups, and minor street flooding.
In November 2017, residents engaged in a 3-day design charrette with HDR Inc. to develop conceptual designs for the project site. These plans were then further developed by SWT Design to construction documents with technical, grading, and seeding specifications.
The purpose of this Request for Proposals is to implement Phase I construction of the green space as designed by residents and specified by SWT Design. The awarded contractor will be responsible for earthwork and material excavation, soil preparation and erosion control, and seeding in accordance with the provided specifications.
