BACKGROUND:

Boulder County Parks and Open Space Department (BCPOS) is seeking proposals for professional design-build contractors to provide all services necessary to restore a montane wetland on the Prescott II property that was ditched historically, leading to draining and drying of hydric soils and long-term impacts to wetland vegetation. The successful contractor will seek out innovative and cost-effective ways to restore the historic hydrology to the site, with minimal impacts to the surrounding vegetation and landscape.

The successful bidder will be required to enter into a Contract for Services. Tasks requiring engineering/design reports and/or plans shall be completed and stamped by the appropriately licensed Professional Engineer and/or Landscape Architect. All Engineers and Landscape Architects must be currently licensed with the State of Colorado. All construction must be supervised by a qualified contractor with experience on design build wetland restoration projects. It is anticipated that the initial design work will be completed in 2022, with further design and construction occurring in 2023, likely in September – October when soils are at their driest.

The Prescott II property is an undeveloped parcel on County Road 105J (Bunce School Road) and USFS Road 105, accessible from either Peaceful Valley Campground or from State Highway 72 near Allenspark (Location Map, Attachments A and B). The access is very rough and requires high clearance vehicles. The road may require some limited improvements to allow access for necessary equipment and vehicles.

PRE-PROPOSAL MEETING:

A Pre-proposal meeting will NOT be held for this Project, however, potential proposers are strongly encouraged to walk or drive the potential access routes prior to submitting a proposal.

The shortest access road leading to the project site passes through the United States Forest Service’s Peaceful Valley Campground, and a weight limited bridge. Beyond this the road is a primitive, narrow, and steep four-wheel drive road requiring a high clearance vehicle. Access can be had from the north on Bunce School Road, but this is a similarly primitive road, narrow, with limited ability to turn a vehicle around and a longer route than the former and is currently blocked by a rockslide.
