(2) LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE SERVICES (closing date: 05/25/2021)

(Note: This RFP has closed. The Harbor is not accepting new proposals at this time. If you have an interest in this RFP, you may contact the Harbor and ask to be notified if this RFP is reopened)

The Crescent City Harbor District (“District”) is seeking proposals from qualified firms to perform weekly landscape maintenance services, with some additional on-call services provided as-needed. Services will include maintenance of District lawns, lawn edges, shrubbery, trees, and flower beds, and removal of weeds, nuisance plants, and unwanted debris from District grounds.
          The District suffered a devastating tsunami in 2011, but has since restored and revitalized the harbor and its surrounding areas. The selected landscaping contractor will be expected to maintain a high standard of upkeep for the benefit of public recreation and commercial use of District property. The harbor contains 240 slips to accommodate vessels up to 175 feet long. District premises also include two RV Parks, several restaurants, and marine equipment supply and support businesses.
          The District is requesting the specification of a firm not-to-exceed fee for performing the services delineated in the RFP (linked below) over the course of a one-year contract period.
