Body

BACKGROUND

 

On September 2, 2014, the City of Madison Common Council adopted a Resolution (RES-14-00678, Legistar # 34536) authorizing the execution of a Purchase and Sale Agreement for a commercial property (the former Griff’s Restaurant, located at 1233 McKenna Boulevard) to be converted for use as a facility to primarily serve as a venue for adult and youth oriented employment services, as well as to provide public meeting or gathering space for neighborhood residents. The Resolution acknowledged that “there will be significant costs for renovations or reconstruction” should the City proceed with plans to transform the site for its intended use.  The magnitude of those costs remains unknown.

 

In order to proceed with the development of the site for use as a center, the Community Development Division needs professional assistance to help develop space programming options; plans and specifications, and bid documents; and to provide construction management. This Resolution seeks authorization for the Division to undertake a Request for Proposals (RFP) process to secure those services from an architectural consultant. 

 

The City will execute an Agreement with the selected architectural consultant to provide two phases of architectural services, for a sum not to exceed $80,000. Funds for these services would be drawn from funds authorized in the City’s 2015 Adopted Capital Budget (PCED Project #8, “Neighborhood Centers”).

 

The first phase of architectural consulting services will include the development of space programming options, reuse options and cost estimates; the second phase will include the development of project plans and specifications, bid documents, and the provision of construction management.

 

A subsequent Resolution, seeking Council authorization to proceed with detailed renovation activities, will be presented to the Council upon the completion and review of the pre-development work described in this Resolution.
