BIA requesting strategic plan consultants


submitted by Deron Johnston

The Old Town Kemptville Business Improvement Association (BIA) is requesting proposals from experienced and qualified vendors (consultants) to help the BIA develop a five-year strategic plan to support the growth and expansion of the downtown business community in Kemptville.

The successful vendor will possess the requisite technical skills to deal with the complex matters to be addressed in the scope of work and will be required to work directly with the BIA Board, BIA staff, BIA members, the public, and stakeholders in a professional manner.

Qualified vendors who are interested in submitting a proposal should email Deron Johnston, Executive Director, [email protected]. to receive a copy of the full Request for Proposal (RFP). Deadline for proposal submissions will be 5:00pm on Friday July 7, 2023.

The BIA Board intends to recommend the appointment of the vendor based on best overall value and a review of the proposal including work plan, schedule, clarity, budget and relevance. The vendor appointment is subject to approval by the BIA Board in accordance with the provisions of the Procurement By-Law.

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is an asociation of commercial property owners and tenants within a defined area who work in partnership with the Municipality to create thriving and safe business areas that attract shoppers, diners, tourists, and new businesses. By working collectively as a BIA, local businesses have the resource capacity (funds and people) to actively enhance the quality of life in their local neighbourhood and the Municipality as a whole.

The Old Town Kemptville BIA was established in 2006 and operates within a defined commercial area referred to as Downtown Kemptville within the Municipality of North Grenville. North Grenville is an amalgamation of the municipalities formerly known as the Town of Kemptville, the Township of Oxford on Rideau and North Gower Township. It is located 30 minutes from downtown Ottawa, along Highway 416, with easy access to Highways 417 & 401.
