The city of Manitowoc is looking for a planning and urban design firm to lead in the creation of a new Downtown Master Plan. The city has several goals for the firm to help them attain. They want to develop a consensus based vision for the downtown area, and it must provide a compelling yet realistic picture of the future. There are also a few transportation and parking related priorities. They want to improve walking, biking, and transit connectivity between key downtown destinations and assets, and would like to review the impact of the one way streets. The city also wants to utilize public participation to build a consensus about what the identity of the downtown area is, and want the firm to give recommendations on how to improve it. The city released their timeline for the project, and the firm will have 10 to 12 months, and $80,000 to work with.
