CA encourages community to attend October 24 public presentation
The Columbia Association (CA) has begun the effort to plan for the replacement or renovation of the Hobbit’s Glen Golf Club Clubhouse. A Request For Proposal (RFP) for consulting architectural/engineering services has been issued. As thoroughly described in the RFP, the design effort will be collaborative including involvement from stakeholder groups and the Columbia Association Board of Directors. To ensure that the Columbia community is informed from the outset, CA has asked the top four responding architectural/engineering firms to provide a public presentation of their proposals. The presentations will be held on Monday, October 24 at 7 p.m. at Historic Oakland. The presentations will include topics such as past relevant experience with similar venues, similar community/stakeholder groups and the firm’s success in gaining consensus; ways the firm will engage the community and stakeholders to create a realistic vision; and why the firm is uniquely qualified to be the consulting architectural /engineering firm for this project. Each presentation is limited to 20 minutes with a 10-minute Q&A to follow.
The CA Board of Directors has approved up to $6 million to either renovate or replace the clubhouse at Hobbit’s Glen Golf Club. CA will hire an architect and an engineer for the project and they will create renovation and new building options for the Board to choose from. The CA Board wants to get as much input as possible before deciding which renovation option or which new building option should be pursued. For more information on this public presentation, please contact Diana Kelley, contract administrator, at 410-381-2947.
