Historic Preservation Plan RFP

Request For Proposals - Citywide Historic Preservation Plan 

The City of Nampa is soliciting responses to this Request for Proposals (RFP) in order to select a Consultant to produce a Historic Preservation Plan (HPP) for the City. The purpose of developing the HPP is to evaluate the current historic preservation program, make recommendations for improvement and to develop a management protocol in order to optimize implementation of the plan.

RFP Summary

The HPP will create a clear path to strengthening the City’s historic preservation program through a long-term vision and a set of practical and achievable strategies for improving the City’s historic preservation program and ethic within the community. The HPP will also build on past successes by acknowledging the role historic preservation plays in shaping the city’s urban form and character, in contributing to the city’s overall economic development, and in sustaining a high quality of life for all Nampa residents, businesses, and visitors.

The HPP will bring together in one document, the many and diverse initiatives, programs, needs, opportunities, goals, and principles related to the preservation of Nampa’s built environment. The HPP will be used as a work program to change and streamline current historic preservation efforts, as well as a guideline for future planning and development efforts and will reflect input from a broad range of partners, including preservation advocates, business interests and development advocates.

The HPP will encompass a five to ten year period and include, but not be limited to, the following components:

  •  Assessment and summary of existing preservation planning program including economic factors, stakeholders, current issues and existing tools;
  • An analysis of the current city of Nampa preservation program including:
