CLIFTON, Colo. (KREX) — The Board of Mesa County Commissioners approved a $1,465,000 contract with RDG Planning & Design, Inc. to construct the Clifton Community Campus that will be located at 3260 D 1/2 Road. The motion for the contract’s approval moved by a vote of 2-0. Board members Cody Davis and Janet Rowland were in favor, while Commissioner Scott McInnis was not present at the time of the vote.
The contract is for engineering services and construction documents to complete the construction of an early childhood education center, early childhood training center, and a community hall, including all its related infrastructure and site planning.
A Request for Proposals (RFP2123-21-JD) was issued in November 2021 — two proposals were received and were evaluated by a five-member panel of stakeholders, including Mesa County administration, facilities, and public health.
When the plan was publicly introduced in Aug. 2021, Mesa County Commissioner Janet Rowland said, “it’s long overdue that they have the space for them. It’ll be really a town center feeling for the community.”
RDG Planning & Design, Inc. was selected for the contract over RNN Architects. Both firms have offices based in Denver.
A statement released by Mesa County said, “RDG Planning & Design, Inc. was selected for its comprehensive knowledge and experience in designing, building, and licensing early childhood education facilities.”
Additionally, a $300,000 grant from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) has been awarded for design and engineering services at the Clifton Community Campus.
