(The structures located at 1830 Green Bay Road, 444 Laurel Avenue, and 466 Laurel Avenue are each a “Structure” and collectively, the “Structures”.) Although the main focus of this RFP is the relocation of the Structures, the City’s overarching goal is to preserve the Structures in an architecturally and historically sensitive manner.

The City Council has the ultimate authority to approve any proposal and to authorize the execution of an Agreement.
