Plans from around Washington County


How many firms were sent the RFP?

10, all with offices within 2 hours of Washington County. Most all of them have done some planning/visioning or trail work in the County.

Who is on the Steering Committee?

- Washington (City Admin, Brent Hinson, & Park Dir, Nick Pacha)
- Kalona (City Admin, Ryan Schlabaugh, & Ben Curtis)
- County Conservation (Steve Anderson, & brd mbr Barb Donkersloot)
- Wash Co Riverboat Foundation (Tom Basten)
- Wellman (City Admin, Kelly Litwiller)
- Riverside (City Admin, Lory Young)
- Keota Unlimited (Ray-Man pres., Melinda Eakins)
- Friends of Lake Darling (Don Kline)
- and Ed Raber from WEDG providing coordination 

Does the web site for the planning process have to be on the WEDG web site, or can it be on a consultant owned site?

The website can be anywhere. Doesn't have to be our domain/site (but it could be). We would just link to it if it's on your platform.

Are we expecting an inventory of park structures, ball fields, amenities, etc. to be completed by the consultant?

No. That would be a bigger job than this. The Steering Committee members are here to help with information like that. Obviously though, developing some first hand working knowledge and understanding of park areas will be important for the selected consultant.  (Hint: there are three public swimming pools in the study area.)
