The City of Healdsburg is launching a coordinated community-based planning process for its parks and open space system and seeks a qualified consultant or consultant team with relevant experience and knowledge to lead the project. The project will incorporate the following components:
(1) Developing a master plan, cost estimates, and related information for a ~36-acre public park associated with the Montage brand resort and residential development currently under construction.
(2) Developing a master plan, cost estimates, and related information for redevelopment of the City’s ~20-acre Badger Park located along the Russian River.
(3) Analyzing opportunities and challenges for creating Russian River access and interfaces as the Russian River passes through the City and developing a plan to enhance river access.
(4) Analyzing and developing a high-level plan for connectivity to parks, open spaces, recreational facilities, schools, Russian River, and other points of interest.
The Project will create legacy opportunities for the community and will be done in conjunction with other planning processes that are currently underway or will be launched soon. These include a Parks and Recreation Facilities Inventory and Assessment, an Arts and Culture Plan, a master plan for the redevelopment of Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach (operated by Sonoma County Regional Parks), and the American Institute of Architects Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) project. It is anticipated that these planning process will inform each other and the Project.
