On behalf of Shamokin Area Partnership for Revitalization, a newly formed group comprising of the City of Shamokin, Shamokin Area Businesses for Economic Revitalization (SABER), and SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) whose mission is to “provide sustainable leadership, direction, and support for the successful, efficient revitalization and long-term success of Shamokin Area,” SEDA-COG is soliciting proposals from prospective consultants to assist in the development of an Implementation Plan for Economic Revitalization.

This plan will serve as the blueprint for future growth and economic development within the downtown for the next 5 years. It is expected to include data collection and analysis, issue identification, public and community participation, and the development of specific long- and short-range implementation strategies and programs, which will be implemented by the Partnership and city partners. The total plan is expected to be completed within a 6-month time span.

Prospective consultants interested in submitting a proposal should review the attached plan goals and objectives, and desired work scope items.

Correspondence regarding this RFP should be submitted in writing via e-mail to Betsy Kramer at bkramer@seda-cog.org no later than October 15th, 2019. A consolidated response to questions will be distributed via email to all prospective consultants on October 22nd, 2019 and posted on the SEDA-COG website.
