The Workforce Housing Commission is presenting its evaluation of six proposals the Town received in response to its RFP and is recommending Developers Collaborative and Portland Builders as the "Preferred Developer" and "Preferred Builder" for the workforce housing project on Woods Road. The Council is asked to take public comment and approve an order to select the Preferred Developer.
In January 2008, the Town Council approved issuance of a Request for Proposals (RFP) for its workforce housing project off Woods Road. A mandatory pre-bid meeting was held on March 13, 2008. Six proposals were received by the RFP deadline of April 23, 2008. All six developer teams were interviewed by the Commission. The Commission selected two developer finalists, conducted site visits for each, requested written responses to follow-up questions, and made reference calls before deciding on which developer to recommend as "Preferred Developer." An evaluation report by the Commission containing various submission and review materials and a draft order are attached. Upon Council
approval, the Commission will work with the Preferred Developer to prepare "Round Two" submission materials for the Council's consideration as articulated in the RFP. Note* Due to 30MB file size, attachment J was split into multiple files.
