Bid Title: A Purchase of Development Rights Program (PDR)
Category: Request for Proposals
Status: Closed

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) and resulting contract is to obtain proposals from qualified and experienced firms specializing in the purchase of development rights (PDR) and land conservation programs.  James City County, Virginia seeks to re-establish a program by which the County purchases property or easements restricting development rights as part of the County’s commitment to protecting the County’s natural, scenic and historic resources, and to promote the continuation of a viable agricultural and forest industry and resource base.  The County previously operated and funded a program that lead to the purchase of over 700 acres of easements, as well as the outright purchase of almost 1,000 acres of property.  In 2012 the Board was no longer able to fund the program, so it has been underutilized since that time.  The Board has requested a study of potential goals of a property/easement acquisition program, as well as an understanding of the criteria that should be used to undertake a new program.  This should also include an evaluation of potential funding options and grant opportunities.
