North Village Request for Proposals Approved
McKenna Associates, with guidance from the Downtown Development Authority and the Downtown Planning Group, recently created a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the North Village. With this RFP, Northfield Township will be seeking development proposals from qualified Respondents to purchase the Township-owned property by the Post Office and commit to developing all or a portion of the 23-acre mixed-use North Village. Any corresponding development is intended to complement the surrounding neighborhoods, historic architecture, and traditional character of Downtown Whitmore Lake while also addressing public amenities, lake views and natural features, desirable connections to Downtown, parking, site access, and community vitality.
The final draft of the RFP was presented to the Board of Trustees at their November 28th meeting. The Board voted to authorize McKenna to release the RFP. It is expected to be ready for release within the next 1-3 weeks, and we should start receiving proposals in the new year!
