Analysis

 

Body

WHEREAS, the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (Housing Authority) began revitalization activities for the Westlawn Housing Development in 2009 and, at that time solicited competitive proposals for planning and architectural/engineering services; and

 

WHEREAS, the Housing Authority awarded a contract to Torti Gallas and Partners, Inc. (Torti Gallas) of Washington, DC to perform those services for the first phase of revitalization, i.e. the eastern portion now known as Westlawn Gardens, including a General Planned Development (GPD) for the entire site (eastern and western portions) that was approved by the City of Milwaukee; and

 

WHEREAS, in the interest of continuity of plan/design and of saving time and money, the Housing Authority awarded a subsequent contract to Torti Gallas for the services required for the western portion now known as Westlawn Gardens Phase 2 in 2016; and

 

WHEREAS, the 2016 contract has reached the maximum allowable contract length of five (5) years as of June 30, 2021 and cannot be extended; and

 

WHEREAS, in the interest of continuity of plan/design and of saving time and money, the Housing Authority seeks to award a new contract to Torti Gallas, pursuant to a non-competitive procurement as allowed by the Code of Federal Regulations, to complete the remaining work required for Westlawn Gardens Phase 2; now, therefore, be it

 

RESOLVED, by the Board of Commissioners of the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee that it hereby authorizes and approves awarding and entering into a new contract with Torti Gallas and Partners Inc. for planning and architectural/engineering services for the remaining work associated with Westlawn Gardens Phase 2, in an amount not to exceed $3,500,000.00; and, be it

 

FURTHER RESOLVED, funds for these services will come from the Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) grant from HUD and from Westlawn Gardens Mixed Financing; and, be it

 

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the proper officers of the Housing Authority be and hereby are authorized and directed to properly execute said contract for and on behalf of the Housing Authority; and, be it

 

FURTHER RESOLVED, that if any change orders including the time of performance are needed, the Chairman and Secretary-Executive Director may approve such request without any further action of the Commissioners of the Housing Authority; and, be it

 

FURTHER RESOLVED, that all of above is contingent upon receiving the approval of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, if it is determined that such approval is required; and, be it

 

FURTHER RESOLVED, that all acts previously performed relative to this matter by the Commissioners and the Secretary-Executive Director of the Housing Authority be and hereby are approved, ratified, and confirmed in all respects.
