After narrowing down a list of 17 responses to our RFP for a Master Plan, and interviewing 7 different firms, we are pleased to announce that we have chosen Ramboll Consulting, an internationally recognized engineering and landscape architecture firm, to partner with us for Phase 1 of the Master Plan. We worked side by side with Ramboll and the adjacent landowners to develop a plan to protect and restore the BPCA, consistent with the long-term objectives of the stakeholders. Phase 1 Master Plan resulted in a Gap Analysis Plan and Barber Pool Master Plan Phase brochure.
The 2nd Phase of the Barber Pool Master was created in-house with the help of a facilitator and board members. The Co-Chairs of Phase 2 were Brandy Wilson, a Foundation Board member who is the Global Sustainability Director for J.R. Simplot Company, and Stephani Hilding, IFPL’s Secretary/Treasurer.
The collaboration of our Partners and Friends to create Phase 2 was remarkable (on page 39 of the Executive Summary). We held five workshops during the months of September through December 2021 with full participation from both groups resulting in Barber Pool Phase 2 Master Plan. The full Executive Summary will be available by the end of May.
