[ARCHIVED] Fifeville Neighborhood Association Issues RFP for Community Work Sessions Facilitator

Charlottesville

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 12, 2021

The Fifeville Neighborhood Association is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) for a facilitator to help co-design and lead up to three Anti-Displacement, Land Acquisition and Development Working Sessions.


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The Fifeville Neighborhood Association (FNA), with coordination and financial support from the City of Charlottesville, is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) for a third party facilitator to help co-design and lead up to three Anti-Displacement, Land Acquisition and Development Working Sessions. 

The working session(s) will help advance implementation of the Cherry Avenue Small Area Plan (SAP) and are being held to gain community and stakeholder input to answer the following key questions:

  • How can the FNA and local partners support Fifeville residents who are at risk of displacement and would like to stay in the neighborhood?
  • Do the City or non-profit/philanthropic sectors have any interest in property acquisition and development on Cherry Avenue or throughout Fifeville? What opportunities exist for partnerships that might jumpstart neighborhood-oriented development in alignment with the goals of the SAP?
  • How can we best partner with private landowners/developers to find win-win solutions for development along Cherry Avenue and throughout Fifeville that meet both residents’ and developers’ needs?

The working sessions should place a priority focus on opportunities to (1) ensure Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) residents and extremely low, very low and low income residents (up to 80% AMI) can remain in Fifeville; and (2) catalyze expansion of culturally welcoming and financially accessible affordable housing options and neighborhood-oriented commercial spaces in Fifeville.

The FNA is requesting competitive bids for the work to be completed. The full RFP can be downloaded from either the FNA Facebook page or the Cherry Avenue Small Area Plan page on the TJPDC website at https://tjpdc.org/reports-archive/cherry-avenue-small-area-plan/.

Questions are due to fifevilleneighbor@gmail.com by Friday, November 12, 2021; responses will be compiled and posted on the FNA Facebook page and emailed directly to all respondents who asked a question. Proposals are due to fifevilleneighbor@gmail.com by Friday, November 19, 2021.

The working sessions will be announced following working with the selected consultant. Updates on the proposed scheduling of the working sessions will also be available on the FNA Facebook page.
