SEQUIM — The city of Sequim will host a public open house at the Sequim Transit Center, 190 W. Cedar St., from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 3, to review design proposals for the new police station and City Hall.
Sequim residents can view visuals of the proposed designs, meet and talk with the design teams, and provide input on comment cards to the City Council and the project evaluation committee.
Earlier in the day, the public can watch presentations by the three firms that the city has contracted to propose design concepts for the new facility.
Presentations will be at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. at the Sequim Transit Center.
The project evaluation committee is comprised of Mayor Ken Hays, Councilwoman Laura DuBois, Councilman Erik Erichsen, City Manager Steve Burkett, Police Chief Bill Dickinson, and Public Works Director Paul Haines.
Panel to meet
The project evaluation committee will meet in executive session at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, to evaluate the performance of the current contract which requires design-build proposals based on pre-established criteria.
The contracts’ scoring criterion includes plans for project management, project schedule, building design and aesthetics, and building cost and value.
The evaluation committee may return to regular session and take action at this meeting.
They may determine the committee’s scores and a recommendation to be made to the city manager for consideration in his recommendation to the council.
The city manager will make his recommendation, and it is anticipated that the Council will make a decision on the design/build team at the regular council meeting at the Sequim Transit Center at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9.
