Question 1
May the proposal for Design Guidelines response combine the scopes for Historic Preservation and the general Design Guidelines (for new construction)?
Response: Consultants can certainly submit responses to both proposals. However, the RFPs are overseen by two separate bodies (Design Review Board and Historic District Commission). If the same consultant is selected for both projects, two separate stand-alone documents will have to be produced. (posted 2/12/2018 @ 1:40PM)

Question 2
Both RFP's look for recommendations for regulatory changes based on the Guidelines. However, the scope of work does do not actually ask for the specific language to be incorporated into the By-Laws and the process by which that is accomplished. Is this correct?
Response: It is our expectation that the selected consultant would develop a list of recommended By-Law changes without drafting the specific regulatory language. (posted 2/12/2018 @ 1:40PM)
