Brookings and Brookings County, SD
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
To Perform a Housing Study & Needs Analysis
DEADLINE: June 30th, 2021
The Brookings Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) is soliciting proposals for a comprehensive housing study of Brookings and potentially surrounding communities including Brookings County, South Dakota. In doing so, BEDC reserves the right to negotiate further as to the terms agreed to as well as the potential rejection of all quotes and proposals as may be deemed appropriate.
I. General Community Information
The City of Brookings and Brookings County is a manufacturing hub located in Eastern South Dakota, less than 20 miles from the Minnesota boarder. The total population in Brookings County is 35,077 with approximately 24,700 living with the City of Brookings. Brookings is home to South Dakota State University (SDSU) which has an annual enrollment of over 11,000 students and is known for its College of Engineering and Agricultural studies. SDSU is one of the largest employers in Brookings and has a significant impact on the housing market. We have the third largest city with industry.
City of Brookings and major sectors of the County have growth constraints either environmental or manmade. Much like most college peer communities Brookings cost of housing is higher than most SD towns. The City's growth potential is limited to 15-20 years. The 2017 comprehensive plan (see link) details expected growth. Its anticipated that future growth will be augmented by neighboring communities.
The City is approximately 58 miles North of Sioux Falls; 48 miles South of Watertown and 210 miles Southeast of Minneapolis, MN. Brookings County consists of the following towns:
II. Project Overview
BEDC has partnered with key community stakeholders (City of Brookings, SDSU, Brookings Chamber of Commerce and Habitat for Humanity) to conduct a housing study and needs analysis. The results of this study will help elected officials, City staff, stakeholders, economic development, and community members develop a meaningful sense of the housing market, as well as an understanding of key housing issues and how they impact the Brookings area. The report is intended to offer community leaders and stakeholders a basis for formulating community-specific housing priorities, policy alternatives and intervention strategies, including land use and zoning decisions. The study should help guide decisions related to the allocation of public funds and other resources.
III. Scope of Work
The study should include an assessment of existing housing conditions, demographic, and market demands, and should identify critical housing gaps and issues. It should identify any current and anticipated unmet housing needs and provide an outlook towards anticipated housing demands over the next 10+ years. The study should identify area, City, county, and neighborhood focused housing priorities and provide policy alternatives and intervention strategies Brookings/County can use to guide decision making for future housing needs. The study should help with answering the following questions:
IV. Additional Background
Brookings has some unique challenges that many other communities might not be facing. Most of them involve our higher-than-average water table and flood plain (Please refer to Attachment A.) which makes development in certain parts of our community impossible or cost prohibitive.
