On August 24, 2016 the city engaged with residents, businesses and community stakeholders in a discussion to gather public input in an effort to ensure that the future use of the One Monument Square site meets the needs and desires of the community. Feedback from this community conversation has been utilized by the administration in the development of a new Request for Proposals which was released on December 19, 2016, with responses due on January 20, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. The Request for Proposal/Qualifications, may be viewed below.

As advertised, responses for the Monument Square RFP were due at 2:00pm, Friday, January 20th at City Hall. Two submissions were received. An advisory group consisting of city staff, residents and property owners has been established to review the proposals.

The Review Committee will meet on January 30th to evaluate the submissions and will be having a follow up meeting the week of February 13-17. Additional meetings may be required. The submissions will be evaluated on Vision and Development Strategy, Relevant Project Experience, Financial Capacity and Development Team.

The #1 ranked firm will be selected as the Preferred Development.

When all items are agreed upon, a Land Development Agreement will be brought to the City Council for approval.
