Perhaps the most important aspect of any public construction project is where exactly it is going to be built.
States, cities, and counties across the country, particularly in the wake of ongoing road construction and broadband installation, are always looking for new space upon which to build, which sometimes can even mean private property.
Now, in anticipating future infrastructure projects, the County of Santa Fe has issued a Request for Proposals for land acquisition services.
The RFP, issued more specifically by the county’s Public Works Department, is looking for “land acquisition consultants with real estate experience” to work on projects that may need more land space in order to be completed.
The county, says the RFP, will use such services on an “as needed-basis for a variety of projects throughout the County as funding becomes available and as specific needs are identified.”
Such services require coordination with Santa Fe County staff, as well as the county engineer and landowners, in order to “determine and obtain the most efficient and cost-effective project area.”
The services will additionally entail determining easement area ownership through title research and reports, as well as the ability to “coordinate and host virtual community meetings for public involvement.”
The RFP has a submission deadline of August 21.
