Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to: Consultants will be assigned to assist LPAs in up to two of the following business districts:A. Jefferson Avenue Business District (Jefferson Ave. addresses between East Ferry St. andDodge St., as well as establishments on corner lots).B. MLK Park Business District (Fillmore Ave. addresses between East Ferry St. and N ParadeAve., as well as establishments on corner lots). C. Broadway Fillmore Business District (Fillmore Ave. address between Sycamore St. andPaderewski Dr., and buildings with a Broadway address between Memorial Dr. and Reed St.,as well as establishments on corner lots in this targeted area).D. Kensington Bailey Business District (Bailey Ave. address between LaSalle Ave. and Rte. 33, aswell as establishments on corner lots in this targeted area). We heard from the community that there is a need to expand neighborhood-serving businessesincluding retail, restaurants, and other services, and increase mixed-use opportunities along thecorridors. At the same time, there is a desire to maintain the historic character of the buildings onthe corridors and re-establish traditional walkable community business districts. Buildings alongthe corridors have a broad range of needs from exterior faade renovations, to interiorimprovements, to systems improvements, to code compliance upgradesthat range in scale andcost. BMSI is working in these communities, but there have been challenges for LPAs and thebusiness communities such as limited capacity for small non-profits to administer funds; limitedtrust, understanding of funding requirements and limited outreach to business owners; fewfinancing mechanisms to cover up front costs; unique challenges to renovating this aging buildingstock; and limited expertise in design and project selection. We believe that with greaterassistance for building owners and improved capacity to market and implement the program(services to be provided by the Consultant), an expanded building renovation program couldimprove the business climate, combat vacancies, and contribute to the overall revitalization of thecorridors.
