City Issues Request for Proposals

The City’s efforts to reclaim the Echo Bay waterfront for the public’s benefit took a major step forward this month with the issuance of a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to five qualified development teams. The RFP outlines the community’s vision of an open waterfront, with a continuous shoreline promenade, appropriately-scaled housing and retail opportunities, and view corridors from Main Street and surrounding neighborhoods. To download the RFP, click on this LINK and then click on Echo Bay RFP from the menu on the left. The competing development teams will make public presentations to the City Council on June 27th and June 29th at 7:00pm. If you are interested, you can view the presentations live on Channel 75. The City will select a finalist this summer.
