For Stevens Point News
PORTAGE COUNTY — Portage County, in partnership with Owner’s Representative, ICS Consultants, Inc. and design partners BWBR/Dewberry, will be hosting a series of three open house events for the community over the next three months.
Each event is intended to provide education and gather citizen feedback regarding various aspects related to the design and construction of a new County Government Facility and renovation of the existing County/City Building.
At the April 24, 2018 Portage County Board of Supervisors meeting, a resolution authorizing an agreement with BWBR/Dewberry was approved to begin design and engineering services for the construction of a new Government Facility and renovation of the existing County/City building.
The open houses are being held as part of the County and design firms desire to educate and include citizens and other interested parties in the process regarding the building project.
The first open house is scheduled for Tuesday, June 6, 2018 at 6pm in Conference Rooms 1 & 2 of the Portage County Annex, located at 1462 Strongs Avenue in Stevens Point, WI 54481. The focus of this meeting will be on the vision and direction of the project, along with outlining the space needs of the various departments that are impacted directly by the project.
Future announcements will be made about the date, time, and location of the other open houses. Any questions pertaining to this project should be directed to Portage County’s Procurement Director, Calvin Winters, at 715-346 1393 or by email at [email protected]
