The City of River Falls, Wisconsin, is partnering with a private landowner (Haskins) to solicit proposals from well-qualified firms with experience in traditional neighborhood design to purchase and develop their 23-acre property. To review the RFP, click here.
Through this RFP process, the landowner is hoping to find a buyer to achieve one of the following outcomes:
• Purchase the whole property, as is, including the existing residence;
• Incorporate the existing residence into the overall design concept for the property; or
• Purchase approximately 20 of the 23 acres to develop, essentially carving out the existing residence to remain in the Haskins’ possession. In this approach, Haskins would wish to be party to any utility upgrades to serve the house.
The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on March 19, 2021. City staff will disseminate all proposals to the review team and schedule review meeting to rank submittals.
