The City through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ), is seeking a qualified professional services firm to provide engineering (including planning and design), benefit cost analysis, environmental review, community outreach, and construction management services for green infrastructure flood mitigation projects. In 2021, the City applied for a grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program to complete a Project Scoping Study. The intent of this study is to identify and evaluate the feasibility of green infrastructure measures that would result in a reduction of flood risk with the goal of positioning the City to apply for additional funding for final design and construction. The study will evaluate Bear Creek, Hewett Creek, and the North Fork Maquoketa River of general flood risks and develop a long-term strategy on how to mitigate flooding and manage development.
