Request for Proposals FINAL

Request for Proposals FINAL

The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development, Catskill Mountainkeeper, and Catskill Heritage Alliance have issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to quantify the economic value of the public land resources in the Catskill Region. The concentration of public lands and their recreational and scenic assets represent an economic value
to the region’s communities; however, a comprehensive valuation of these resources has not been undertaken. The project will evaluate how more 350,000 acres of publicly accessible lands and reservoirs of the Catskill Forest Preserve and Catskill-Delaware Watershed are impacting the economies of local communities. The findings of the study will help communities and partnering organizations better understand how the region’s outdoor assets are used and where efforts can be focused to support recreation and tourism.

The RFP is available on each of the websites of the partnering organizations:
http://www.catskillcenter.org; http://www.catskillheritage.org; http://www.catskillmountainkeeper.org, or by contacting Peter Manning, Catskill Center Regional Planner, at (845) 586-2611 or pmanning@catskillcenter.org. Proposals are due by or on July 11, 2011.
