CONTRACT # OB2023-11
2023 Conveyance of Affordable Housing Property, Panola and Oak
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
The Town of Oak Bluffs and the Oak Bluffs Affordable Housing Committee are seeking proposals from qualified non-profit organizations to build single-family affordable houses on two town-owned lots in Oak Bluffs. On November 7, 2023, the Town voted to authorize the Select Board to convey the ownership of the parcels subject to a permanent affordable deed restriction to construct two homeownership units for qualified first-time low to moderate-income homebuyers. The unit must be sold in accordance with regulations and guidelines of the Local Initiative Program, 760 CMR 45.00, and qualify for inclusion on the Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI).
The proposed project is to create one unit of housing on each parcel in accordance with local zoning by-laws, and designed to fit in with the local character of other houses in the neighborhood. The purpose of this RFP is to select an organization with the experience and capability to create and maintain the residences as permanently affordable properties.
Proposal Deadline: Interested organizations must submit three (3) hard copies of proposals on or before noon on Friday, January 19, 2024, when all proposals received will be opened and recorded in public. No faxed or electronic submissions will be accepted. If the Town Hall is closed on the date of the delivery deadline, the proposal opening will be postponed until noon on the next business day. Proposals must be submitted to the Chief Procurement Officer in a sealed envelope and marked "Affordable Housing Property Panola and Oak."
