Opportunity Description:

The Town of High River ("High River") is inviting proposals for a stipulated price solution for the design, supply and installation of a pedestrian crossing signal (the "Work")

The Master Plan process should be approached collaboratively with the community,
stakeholders, and Staff; and the project schedule should provide adequate time for each
project component, including working with community members, Town staff, facilitating public
participation, data gathering and analysis, document preparation, and reviews by key

The goal of the Master Plan is to Develop a comprehensive, 10-year, master plan that includes but is not limited to the following;

1. Assess High River’s greenspace, parkland, playgrounds and facilities, natural areas and trails assets and inventory to ascertain whether the current and anticipated future needs of the community are being met. Identify and prescribe acquisition strategies for playgrounds, and other outdoor community amenities (wildlife corridors, riparian areas, agricultural land buffers, etc)
2. Prioritize capital parks and trails projects to guide long- range financial planning and funding assistance applications
3. Provide a list of relevant grants that would be consistent with capital improvements
4. Prepare a schedule of improvements to upgrades to the parks and trails and natural areas network
5. Present a parks and trails strategy that best serves the public interest and creates a sustainable community that supports alternatives to vehicle transportation
6. Integrate the plan with parks and trails outside the boundaries of the Town
7. Define Park categories consistent with the City of Calgary
8. Prescribe a standard for the type, number and quality of the asset (i.e. play structures, washrooms, benches, garbage cans) within each park category
9. Review of the High River’s Parkland and Greenspaces policy statements and recommend appropriate draft policy amendments for Council’s consideration
10. Propose policy statements for Council’s consideration that could be used to amend the Town Plan to support the recommendations of acquisition, development and redevelopment of parkland, natural areas, trails and corridors
11. A section of this document will contain a natural areas management plan and a wildlife management plan taking into account the wildlife already present and the objectives and goals we have regarding the future of wildlife and natural areas
