Call for Proposals: Chimney Swift Tower Artistic Design and Implementation | Call for Proposals: Chimney Swift Tower Artistic Design and Implementation

The Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department (Department) has built and installed a chimney swift nesting and roosting tower at Virmond County Park in the City of Mequon specially designed to provide habitat for chimney swifts, a declining native migratory bird species. The Department is also using the tower to help raise awareness about this imperiled species and the importance of habitat conservation in addition to providing habitat for chimney swifts. The Department is requesting proposals from an artist or group to create and implement their ideas for a design to make the tower more aesthetically pleasing while providing educational opportunities. The full Project Call for Proposals can be downloaded from Ozaukee County's Bid Posting page at http://www.co.ozaukee.wi.us/bids.aspx. Project proposals are due by 5:00 pm Thursday, June 1, 2017 and should be submitted electronically to kkroening@co.ozaukee.wi.us. A committee of artists and Department staff will review the proposals for design aesthetics and implementation feasibility and make a decision by July 15, 2017.
