RFP: Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

The City of Waupaca is seeking a proposal for a qualified professional firm for the development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. 

The City’s vision for this project is to create a unified network of trails accessible to bicyclists and pedestrians of all abilities. The network should create routes to destination locations around the City of Waupaca including the downtown, neighborhoods, businesses, schools, and parks.

The RFP has a scope consisting of five different tasks: Evaluation, Engineering, Education, Initiatives, and Recommendations. Evaluation will focus on the current levels of non-motorized transportation throughout the city, firms will determine the best method of data collection and interpretation. The second task, Engineering, will determine the existing infrastructure available and inventory using both your own and previously collected data. Task 3, Education, will be to develop initiatives that include gathering public input, using media outlets, and holding meetings, to determine the best methods of educating stakeholders on the benefits of an updated transportation system. Initiatives is the next task which focuses on developing initiatives to build enthusiasm and interest in the usage of the proposed network. The final task, Recommendations, will be a compilation of all of the other tasks and will address the best possible project development scenario. This task will include but is not limited to: development scenarios with alternatives, signage and design standards, environmental impacts, maintenance plans, and schedules outlining final design and construction phases.

RFP: Wayfinding System Design and Branding Initiative

The City of Waupaca and the Waupaca Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (WACVB) are seeking proposals from qualified professional firms for the development of a Wayfinding System Design and Branding Initiative. 

The RFP has separate tasks for the City and WACVB Wayfinding Systems, respectively. The intention is to develop a city-wide wayfinding system, with reference to the Downtown Plan, that highlights key areas of interest for residents and visitors, such as: parking lots, the downtown area, business districts, and community parks. The system will include signage that is accessible via driving, biking, and walking. The WACVB seeks to develop a system that would incorporate surrounding communities and areas of interest. While the goal is to create a cohesive network between the City and surrounding areas, the selected consultant will be designated as the lead in order to facilitate separate focus groups to achieve the individual goals of the City and WACVB.

The Branding Initiative seeks to provide Waupaca with a clearer vision of who we are as a community (both city-wide and regionally) and where we look to go in the future. Objectives that the City hopes to meet with this task include developing a memorable and concise design that reaches targeted audiences who may come from a variety of different backgrounds. This task will be heavily focused on community involvement and will work to involve all interest groups in order to create a collective voice of the City. The chosen consultant will provide the City with a style guide for graphics and templates for common necessities that the City may need such as letterheads, webpages, and report covers. The Branding Initiative for WACVB will follow the same outline as the City but may focus on a regional scale rather than a city-wide scale. Local communities may work with WACVB to develop their own branding initiative that is complementary to the Regional Initiative. Both initiatives will consist of visual elements, messaging and brand expression.

Proposals shall include the consultants’ approach to the scope and any additional information deemed necessary. Please refer to the full RFP for additional information regarding the scope and requirements the City is looking to fulfill.

Copies of proposals shall be delivered to the City of Waupaca’s City Hall. Please mark “Proposal for the City of Waupaca and WACVB Wayfinding System Design and Branding Initiative” on the envelope by 4:00 pm CST on Friday April 20, 2018.
