City of Altoona
Qualified consultants are invited to submit a response to this Request for Proposal (RFP) for review and consideration by the City of Altoona, Wisconsin to perform a space needs analysis.

Altoona is experiencing unprecedented economic and population growth. For the last seven years, Altoona has ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in Wisconsin, according to Wisconsin Department of Administration population estimates. Due to this growth, Altoona has added several positions to meet growing service demands. This staffing increase has led to a strain on available space within city facilities. Further, in the future, the City may consider adding additional staff to meet service demands. The City desires to develop plans to correct existing deficiencies and meet the future needs of City Departments.

This analysis will involve reviewing the following City owned facilities in Altoona, WI 54701 including: 1) City Hall and attached Library (1303 Lynn Ave); 2) Emergency Services Building (1904 Spooner Ave); 3) Public Works Building (2740 Bauer St, Eau Claire, WI); 4) Parks Maintenance Building (143 10th St W); 5) Recreation Department Office / River Prairie Center (1445 Front Porch Pl); 6) 10th Street Recreation Building; 7) River Prairie Restroom and Storage Facility. The selected consultant may also be asked to evaluate a 9,000 square foot privately owned building for possible purchase and use by the City.
The selected firm will provide, in consultation with appropriate city staff, a space needs analysis for short and long-term needs and a list of capital projects with estimated costs to accommodate those needs.
