The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit qualifications to hire an experienced firm or consultant(s) to develop a set of design guidelines for the City’s major thoroughfares that leverages Lake Worth’s built environmental assets and strengths and contributes to Lake Worth’s unique character as a dense, walkable, culturally diverse City with a strong sense of place. Due to the many architectural styles in the City, the document must assist with the development of a cohesive and complementary character.
The envisioned guidelines will include design objectives and diagrams and other necessary information to clearly illustrate appropriate design principles for buildings, storefronts, streetscapes, landscapes, site plans and signage. The guidelines will be made available to property owners, business owners and building owners and potential developers for use when constructing or improving their properties. This final document will also be adopted by ordinance to work in tandem with the City’s Land Development Regulations.
The firm selected for this project will provide leadership throughout the planning process. This project should result in a comprehensive set of guidelines to enhance the aesthetic quality of our major thoroughfares. This set of guidelines should be presentable to the public as an easy to follow book-like format and available for review on-line.
