Analysis

This resolution directs the City Clerk to issue a Request for Qualifications and Request for Proposals for designing and adopting a new official City flag.

 

Body

 

Whereas, On July 31, 2018, the Common Council directed the Milwaukee Arts Board by Resolution File Number 180339 to establish and implement a process for the consideration, review, and possible recommendation of one or more designs for a new official City flag; and

 

Whereas, The Arts Board reported its findings and recommendations to the Steering and Rules Committee on February 14, 2019, by Common Council Communication File Number 181378; and

 

Whereas, The Arts Board determined that a new flag is necessary; and

 

Whereas, The Arts Board recommended that the process for considering, reviewing, and recommending design for a new official City flag should be to issue a joint Request for Qualifications and Request for Proposals (RFQ/RFP) to be developed and overseen by the City Clerk’s Office; now, therefore, be it 

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the City Clerk is directed to issue an RFQ/RFP to solicit the interest of designers in designing a new official City flag; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the City Clerk is directed to present the RFQ/RFP to the Common Council for approval within 30 days of the adoption of this resolution; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the RFQ/RFP shall include the requirement that designers demonstrate evidence of the capability to conduct community outreach related to design and a plan for conducting such outreach for designing a flag, including subcontracting outreach services; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the RFQ/RFP shall include a cost estimate for conducting outreach and for designing a flag based on community feedback; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the evaluation of the RFQ/RFP award additional points for proposals that employ Milwaukee residents for outreach and design work; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the City Clerk shall report the findings of the RFQ/RFP to the Common Council for selection of a designer, design team, or design firm; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That completion of community outreach, design of the flag, and presentation to Common Council for final approval of a flag design shall be completed by May 31, 2020.
