A PARK FOR YOUR CITY
REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
The R. A. Bloch Cancer Foundation, Inc. is interested in providing funds for the development of parks dedicated to cancer survivors in metropolitan areas with populations of 1,000,000 or more.
The following are components required for consideration:
A community willing to accept a grant from the Foundation of up to a maximum of $900,000, plus $100,000 to establish a fund for perpetual maintenance. In addition to these amounts, the Foundation will donate the sculpture “Cancer…there’s hope”, the Road to Recovery and Positive Mental Attitude Walk plaques.
The responsibility for the construction and a guarantee of perpetual maintenance must be assumed by the community.
All potential locations will be reviewed and the best will be selected. In order to properly analyze potential locations, the submittal package should include:
- A map of the city with potential sites marked
- Population counts
- Photographs of each site and surrounding environment (aerial photo if possible)
- Pertinent demographic information about each site
- Sites should be approximately 1 1/2 acres and not more than two acres.
- Traffic counts on intersecting streets.
- Any other information deemed appropriate including data on unusual site conditions.
Each Park is appropriately designed to be unique and to blend in with the local environment. The community is to have plans for the approved site prepared which will be subject to approval by the Foundation. Construction should be completed within one year.
Payment schedule: $300,000 on signing of contracts, delivery of plaques and sculpture, $300,000 on beginning of construction, $300,000 on completion and $100,000 for perpetual maintenance at dedication.
After submission, a member of the Bloch Parks Committee will visit the community and inspect candidate sites. A commitment will be made quickly.
