STATEMENT OF WORK
The City of Montrose has been selected to receive a grant from History Colorado through the Certified Local Government (CLG) Subgrant Program to prepare a historical context report and to conduct reconnaissance and/or intensive level surveying for Montrose’s La Raza Park Neighborhood, historically known as Tortilla Flats, located on the city’s northwest side. The completed historical context report, in addition to reconnaissance and/or intensive surveying, will serve as a planning document that identifies historic resources and evaluates the eligibility of those resources for various types of historic designation. The final report shall make recommendations on future neighborhood preservation efforts. The project follows the completion of Montrose’s City-wide Historic Resources Survey Plan (2020) which recommended additional surveying of the neighborhood and is a top priority for the city’s Historic Preservation Commission (included as Exhibit A).
Tortilla Flats, is a traditionally Mexican-American and LatinX neighborhood with many multi-generational families who have resided in the neighborhood for decades. However, the neighborhood is experiencing changes as redevelopment pressures increase. The proposed historic context report will continue efforts to learn about the history of the Tortilla Flats Neighborhood, including the historical roots of its name - Tortilla Flats, and engage residents in a new way that is focused on historic preservation. In 2018, the city received a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation to engage residents to build relationships as well as to better understand the concerns of the neighborhood. Engagement efforts included a photovoice project consisting of photos taken or shared by community members. Participants were asked one question, “When you think of your neighborhood, what is important to you?” Many photos told stories about the rich history of the neighborhood, such as a photo of La Raza Park that recounted the community effort to build it. View the photovoice project at: https://hapgj.org/media/tortilla-flats-neighborhood-photovoice-project/. The city seeks to complete this project now in order to continue previous engagement efforts and to gain insight into preservation goals for the neighborhood before additional redevelopment pressures increase.
The city is seeking proposals from qualified historic and/or cultural resources consultants that meet the U.S. Secretary of the Interior's Professional Qualification Standards and are knowledgeable of and have experience with the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties to complete the proposed project.
Specifically, the city seeks proposals on an approach/methodology to complete the following tasks:
Prepare Historic Context
Community Member Interviews
Conduct Survey on Properties
Property Owner Interviews
Complete Site Forms and Survey Report
Intensive Level Survey Forms (SHPO Form 1403)
