West Hayden Island Consultant Requests for Proposals

There are currently two Requests for Proposals (RFPs) requesting consultant bids to aid the city in their current phase of planning for West Hayden Island.  These requests were released in early March.

The first would lead us through the concept planning process adhering to the City Councils parameters to consider protecting at least 500 acres of open space while allowing up to 300 acres for marine terminal development.  This work would also consider background research such as updating a rail study for the island and researching operational efficiencies that could be used on the island. The bids are due on April 1st. The second will analyze the potential public costs and benefits associated with a marine terminal development meeting the parameters of the City Council, as well as the costs and benefits in keeping the island's current state. Bids for this proposal are due on April 8th. 

For consultants interested in finding out more about these RFPs, you can access the city's purchasing website at www.ebidexchange.com/cityofportland.  The current proposals are BPS-014 and BPS-015 respectively.

General information about these scopes of work were discussed with the projects Advisory Committee in January, and are available in the Adviory Committee meeting notes, starting on page 32
