The City of Bozeman is seeking proposals from a qualified consultant with expertise in historic preservation to undertake the creation of a Local Landmark Program and revamp existing preservation policies. The purpose of this program is to develop a protocol for listing local historic resources and establish policies to enhance Bozeman's current historic preservation program.
The primary objectives of the work are:
- Rebrand the historic preservation program with a focus on "people-centered preservation" rather than just "place-centered preservation";
- Develop recommendations and provide guidance and tools for rebranding the Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District (NCOD) and how it could evolve;
- Identify the discrepancies between the zoning districts and how it impacts the NCOD and the preservation program;
- Reframe and redefine historic preservation policy and the definition of integrity with a focus on inclusion and equity around cultural significance rather than just historic significance;
- Develop standards for a local preservation landmark program;
Offer resources that can help incentivize preservation and adaptive reuse rather than demolition;
- Ensure regulations and policies are consistent with the Unified Development Code and other adopted planning documents.
Questions and/or inquiries must be emailed to Sarah Rosenberg, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The due date for the submittal is Friday, January 6, 2023. Any administrative questions regarding proposal procedures should be directed to Mike Maas, City Clerk, (406) 582-2321, email@example.com.
