Consultant Selection Phase

City staff has released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for consultants interested in leading this project. The RFQ will be open into December, after which staff will review consultant team responses.

The project description that is included in the RFQ was open to public comment in February and March 2020. The survey and comments showed the community has an interest in improving the safety of walking and driving in Wakefield, as well as interest in greenways and urban design. You can view the full survey results and comments.

Project kickoff is expected to begin in February 2021.
