Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into contract with Arcadis U.S., Inc., in the amount of up to $400,000.00 for the UIRF - Milo Grogan Second Avenue Improvements contract.

The UIRF - Milo Grogan Second Avenue Improvements contract was originally advertised as the UIRF Second Avenue Curb Extensions project, with a C.I.P. Number of 440005-101873. The Department of Development has decided to re-name the project to UIRF- Milo Grogan Second Avenue Improvements, with a C.I.P. number of 440005-102221. The rest of this legislation shall use this contract name and C.I.P. number.

The intent of this contract is to provide the Department of Public Service with continuing, contractual access to additional resources that are necessary to produce construction plans and associated deliverables for improvements to East Second Avenue from Sixth Street to St. Clair Avenue. Improvements will generally consist of new pervious pavement in the parking lane of 2nd Avenue, resurfacing the remaining existing pavement, replacing the existing curb and installation of curb extensions to define the parking areas. Streetscape improvements will consist of replacement of existing sidewalks, new street trees, and new street lighting with underground circuit. The signals at Cleveland Avenue and St. Clair Avenue will be modified to accommodate the proposed improvements.

The Department of Public Service, Office of Support Services, solicited Requests for Proposals for the UIRF- Milo Grogan Second Avenue Improvements contract. The project was formally advertised on the Vendor Services web site from December 15, 2016, to January 17, 2017. The city received seven (7) responses. All proposals were deemed responsive and were fully evaluated when the Evaluation Committee met on January 27, 2017.
