The City of Overland Park is issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a Park Master Plan.
The City of Overland Park is a suburb in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area with a population of approximately 177,000. The city currently has 83 parks and open spaces and five lakes representing 1,780 acres of parkland. Additionally, the city has a 300-acre arboretum, a 320-acre Kemper Farm property, two community centers, a children’s farmstead, two golf courses, a soccer complex, and 65 miles of trails. The city seeks to determine how to best meet the future park needs of its citizens through enhancements to existing parks and acquisition of additional parkland. This effort is intended to result in a plan that identifies parks and recreational needs for the City of Overland Park, policy approaches to achieve overall goals, and a likely capital program for park enhancements into the foreseeable future.
All inquiries should be coordinated through Keith Gooch, senior planner, 913-895-6181, firstname.lastname@example.org. Sealed qualifications will be received until 4:00 p.m. on November 21, 2011. Detailed requirements and qualifications for these services may be obtained on the city’s web site at www.opkansas.org/bids-and-proposals.
