The City of Powell is extending an invitation to experienced and qualified firms to submit their qualifications for providing comprehensive planning services. This significant project will encompass a Facility Condition Assessment, Facility Needs Assessment, and the subsequent Facility Master Plan and Strategy for key municipal facilities, including City Hall, the Police Department, and the Public Service/Parks complex.

Addressing Aging Infrastructure

In recent years, Powell has recognized the pressing need for renovation and expansion of its municipal facilities. City Hall, the Police Department, and the Public Services building, which have faithfully served the community for decades, are now confronting issues related to age and capacity. These structures are increasingly inadequate to support the growing scope of services required by Powell’s burgeoning population.

Urgency for Comprehensive Assessments

The current facilities are struggling to meet operational demands, lacking necessary space and modern amenities to function efficiently. This situation underscores the urgency for comprehensive assessments and strategic planning. By undertaking these evaluations, Powell aims to address infrastructure challenges, enhance service delivery, ensure public safety, and foster a more effective and responsive government.

Project Scope and Objectives

The primary objective of this plan is to assess the current conditions and future needs of Powell’s key municipal facilities. This comprehensive strategy will focus on maintenance, upgrades, expansions, and potential new construction. The goal is to ensure that these buildings can support Powell’s future needs effectively.

Submission Details and Important Dates

The City of Powell is calling for qualification submission packages from experienced planning firms. These submissions will be crucial for the development of a Facilities Master Plan, along with related existing conditions and needs assessments, to plan for the future of Powell’s City Hall, Police Department, and Public Service Buildings.

  • Submission Deadline: July 2 by 5:00 PM
  • Submission Address: Office of Grant Crawford, Director of Public Service, 47 Hall Street, Powell, OH 43065
  • Facility Walkthrough: June 17 at 9:00 AM, starting at City Hall
