Updating Highland Park's Central East Survey Architectural Survey (1999) and Reviewing Local Landmark Documentation

Updating Highland Park's Central East Survey Architectural Survey (1999) and Reviewing Local Landmark Documentation

Through this Request for Proposals ("RFP"), the City of Highland Park, Illinois ("City"), requests proposals from qualified firms to provide services for two related projects:

 1) Revisit the architectural information in the Central East architectural resource surveys (both the inventory and the written summary report) to reflect demolitions, new construction, and major alterations on properties that have taken place since 1998. This will include providing updated photographs wherever possible and updating the condition and historical status of the structures. New appreciation of certain architectural styles and trends may result in additional findings of significance within the survey area. A further objective is to ensure all survey information is available in digital form

 2) Evaluating the quality of the documentation for Highland Park’s existing local historic landmarks. Many were nominated in the 1980s without the benefit of current research tools. An analysis of landmarks and their documentation may reveal opportunities to expand the City’s knowledge and appreciation of historic homes (collectively, “Services”).
