NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT The City of Sidney is requesting proposals from qualified historic preservation firms to conduct a comprehensive intensive level survey report of the historic structures of the Original Town Plat area. This project encompasses approximately a 30 block area comprised of approximately 150-175 properties. All structures and auxiliary structures shall be included, with extended documentation for those structures over 50 years old. The Survey will be utilized as a basis for designating potential local landmarks and National Register properties. The work to be accomplished under this project shall meet the Secretary of Interior’s Standords for Archeology and Historic Preservation [Federal Register 48(190):44716-44742]. All photography, mapping, and data collection must conform to standards established for the Nebraska Historic Resources Survey & Inventory (NeHRSI), maintained by the Nebraksa State Historical Society. The request does not commit the City of Sidney to pay any cost incurred in the preparation or submission of your proposal nor to procure a contract for any services or supplies. It is anticipated that a lump sum contract, not to exceed $25,000 will result from this solicitation.

As part of the selection criteria, an interview may be held to determine the most qualified proposal submitted. Management will make the selection by following the city’s procurement policy for professional services.
