    Statement of Interest

    The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to seek proposals from qualified consulting firms to provide professional services to the Bi-Town Housing Committee of Dover and Wilmington, VT to develop a Housing Analysis and Master Plan that covers the next 20 years of the community.

    The Committee seeks a qualified consultant with expertise in housing markets and economic development to prepare a Housing Master Plan including:
    • a detailed Inventory and Assessment of housing within the community, and
    • a Strategic Action Plan that facilitates an improvement in both quantity and quality of housing that will serve a wide range of incomes and household needs, and to foster re-investment in the communities housing stock.

    Schedule: The anticipated schedule for the RFP is as follows:

    RFP Available March 25, 2019
    Deadline for Questions April 15, 2019
    Proposal Submissions Due May 1, 2019
    Review and Interviews May 2019
    Award by Bi-Town Housing Committee June 2019
    Background

    The Towns of Dover and Wilmington, VT are home to two recreational ski areas, the Green Mountain National Forest, as well as the many amenities needed to support those facilities. This reliance on the tourism, retail, and service sector creates several unique housing challenges. Much of the tourism employment is seasonally dependent, and many workers struggle the steady income stream needed for home ownership. In addition, the second home market, as well as visitor rentals, increases the pressure on home prices for both renters and homeowners. As a result, many employees commute long distances to work, either from the Towns of Dover & Wilmington to larger centers of employment such as Brattleboro and Bennington, or the other way around.

    Major concerns include:
    • Age and condition of existing housing stock.
    • Growing percentage of housing that are second homes or vacation rentals.
    • Limited long-term rentals available.
    • Lack of seasonal workforce housing.
    • Gaps in the range of housing available, particularly the lack of entry level homeownership opportunities that are both affordable and appealing.
    • Lack of affordable and accessible housing for residents reaching retirement.
    • Insufficient infrastructure to support significant new development.

    The intent for this Housing Master Plan is to establish the direction for housing initiatives and programs based on a 20-year planning horizon. The Master Plan will include a summary of goals and objectives, an inventory and analysis of existing conditions and future projections, as well as a Strategic Action Plan that will outline recommendations, an implementation plan, and a timeline for achieving them.

    The plan should create a roadmap to guide future decision making to ensure an appropriate balance of supply and demand for housing, both rental and owner occupied. The results of this study will help elected officials, municipal staff, stakeholders and community members develop a meaningful sense of the housing market and understanding of key housing issues and their impact.

    The consultants shall use a comprehensive public planning process during the preparation of this Master Plan, including, but not limited to, surveys, public meetings, workshops and stakeholder meetings. This community input will be utilized to create the framework needed for future planning of projects and programs. The consultant team shall work with the Committee, the Select Boards, the Planning Commissions, and residents, land and business owners, and visitors to develop the Master Plan.

    The implementation plan should outline short term projects (0-3 years), midterm projects (3-10 years) to begin planning, and long-term projects (10-20 years) that we should strive towards.

    The consultant shall prepare a draft plan, utilizing information gained throughout this process, and present it to the community throughout a variety of means. The consultant shall than make appropriate revisions prior to the Bi-Town Housing Committee approving it and the final plan being presented to the committee and then larger community.
