Request for Proposals
Incorporating Art into Four Public Restroom Facilities
Downtown Homer and on the Homer Spit
Proposals to incorporate art into new Public Restroom Facilities located on Pioneer Avenue in two locations and on the Homer Spit in two locations will be received at the Office of the City Clerk, City Hall, City of Homer, 491 East Pioneer Avenue, Homer, Alaska, until 4:30 P.M., Thursday, August 23, 2012.
A project site visit will be held on Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. to physically view the project sites on the Spit and on Pioneer Avenue. Proposers interested in attending are directed to meet in the Cowles Council Chambers at City Hall.
Please direct all questions regarding this request for proposal to Renee Krause, Deputy City Clerk, at City Hall; (907) 235-8121, Ext 2224.
The intent of this proposal effort is to provide an opportunity for artists and other interested persons to present ideas on how and what art can be incorporated into the building (interior and exterior), and the surrounding site. The proposals will be evaluated by an Art Selection Committee utilizing the City’s 1% for Art Funding designated for this project. All ideas and concepts will be considered. Expect that more than one art piece or idea will be funded with the available dollars.
The City of Homer reserves the right to accept or reject any or all proposals, to waive irregularities or informalities in the proposals, and to award the contract to the respondent that best meets the selection criteria based on the recommendations of the review committee.
