Shelby Farms begins Design Competition

Taken from the Yellow Trail on in the Lucius E. Burch Natural Area in Shelby Farms, courtesy of Justin McGregorI saw on the CEOs for Cities blog that the Shelby Farms Conservancy has issued a Request for Qualifications for an Innovative Design Competition.
Up to five finalists will be selected from among the respondents to the RFQ and invited to participate in a 15-week planning and design process. The results of this design process will be presented to the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy Board and also to the public through an exhibit and on an interactive Web site. This design review is intended to generate creative and varied concepts to help design an outstanding Shelby Farms Park for Memphis.

At the conclusion of this process, the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy may select one or more of the participants to continue, or choose to retain none of them.
The deadline for the RFQ is Wednesday, October 10th, 2007, 12:00 Noon.

For those who want to cut to the case, download the RFQ. Also, this post's geo-tags will take you close to the center of the park.
