Market Needs Assessment - RFP
Floyd County Redevelopment Commission
This RFP is issued by Floyd County Redevelopment Commission (FCRDC) for the purpose of obtaining a market needs assessment and financial analysis related to potential new or remodeled sports facilities located in the Floyd County, Indiana. Key stakeholder and user groups in Floyd County have identified a growing need for sporting event facilities in order to better serve their residents; provide high quality venues to host regional and state sporting events, and drawing outside dollars into the local economy. The study area includes the area of U.S. 150 and State Road 64 corridors.
The venues of highest priority include: baseball, softball tennis courts. Other minor sport venues should be identified for consideration. These needs are likely to be addressed through a combination of new buildings and possible improvements to existing facilities and will likely require a phased approach and strategies to leveraging public-private partnerships in order to secure initial funding for building and renovations as well as long-term operations and maintenance of the facilities.
The Committee will use the information presented in the feasibility study to create a realistic action plan and the study will be used to assist in securing the funding to build, operate and maintain venues that would be financially viable in the Floyd County area. The Steering Committee will consist of members from the County Redevelopment Commission, County Commissioners, County Council, and County Parks. This committee will facilitate and manage the feasibility study process and this group will be involved throughout the process in order to develop a comprehensive look at the region's needs. The committee is seeking to hire a firm to conduct a feasibility study in order to gain a better understanding of what types of facilities are needed in the Floyd County area and what types of facilities would be financially viable for current and future needs.
