SECTION 1 – INTRODUCTION

1.1 PURPOSE

To help alleviate the housing problem for middle-income households in Walton County, Walton County Workforce Housing Corporation (WCWFHC), a non-profit corporation formed by the Walton County Board of County Commissioners, is developing Wolf Creek Village. Located five miles east of Freeport, Wolf Creek will be an upscale, attractive, family-friendly community with underground utilities, paved streets, hard-surface walking paths, and landscaped common areas. The plat of Wolf Creek is attached as Exhibit 1.

The sole purpose in developing Wolf Creek is to assure that persons who are working to secure our community, teach our children, care for our health, and deliver all the other services that are vital to the community’s welfare actually have the opportunity to live in high-quality homes in close proximity to their work. Therefore, Wolf Creek Village will be offered to residents who qualify as essential personnel and have household incomes within 140% of the median income for Walton County.

(For a more details about Wolf Creek, see the Facts section of the Agreement to Provide Housing)

1.2 DEFINITION OF TERMS

The following are terms, with their definitions, used throughout this Request for Proposal and the other documents in the Request for Proposal Package:

1. Builder means one who submits a Response to the Request for Proposals directly to the WCWFHC.

2. Responsible and Responsive Proposal means a Proposal that conforms in all material respects to the requirements set forth in the documents contained in the Request for Proposal Package and shows that the Builder has the capability, experience, integrity, reliability, capacity, and credit worthiness to assure compliance with the requirements of the Agreement to Provide Housing or the Contract to Develop.

3. Request for Proposal Package, also referred to as the Request Package, means a package that includes the Request for Proposals (Request), Instructions, Response to Request for Proposals (Proposal), Subcontractors and Suppliers List, Questionnaire, Contact for Builder, Public Entities Crimes Statement, Addendum Form, Agreement to Provide Housing (Agreement), Contract to Develop Wolf Creek, if requested by Builder, Construction Contract with Buyers (Contract), and General Conditions of Construction Contract.

4. Response to the Request for Proposal Package, sometimes referred to as the Proposal, means a package containing an original and five copies of all the documents in the Request for Proposal Package that are listed in Number 3 of the Instructions, filled out completely, executed properly, and submitted to WCWFHC as provided in the paragraph 3.5 herein and paragraph five of the Instructions.

SECTION 2 – GENERAL INFORMATION

2.1 SCOPE OF WORK

WCWFHC is requesting Proposals from qualified builders to provide 242 detached, single-family homes in Phase One of Wolf Creek Village. The Proposal will be an offer by the Builder to enter into an Agreement to Provide Housing with WCWFHC. The Builder may chose the alternate or additional proposal as provided in 2.3 below. (The Agreement to Provide Housing is included in the Request Package and may be reviewed for more details about Wolf Creek and the obligations of the Builder.)

One of the terms of the Agreement will require the Builder to enter into a Construction Contract with each of the buyers of lots in Wolf Creek, as the buyers become available and qualified. The Contract with the buyers will incorporate the Agreement with WCWFHC and will include an obligation to deliver turn-key homes, including appliances and landscaping, at the predetermined prices. The Agreement between WCWFHC and the Builder will be an obligation and exclusive right to contract with all buyers in Phase One for a period of three years. The Proposal may include terms allowing price increases based on relevant criteria or indexes.

The Builder will offer only three basic floor plans and sizes, ranging from 1000 to 1500 square feet (each plan different by at least 175 square feet), each with three bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The smallest floor plan will have an alternate plan, with the only difference being two bedrooms instead of three. Additionally, the Builder will provide, as options, three upgrade packages for each floor plan, a front and rear porch (if not included in the basic plan), and a one-car and two-car garage.

The layout of the plans should be similar, with the only basic difference being size. The plans will have widths and depths that can fit on a lot that is 50′ wide by 120′ long, with 71/2′ side setbacks, 20′ front setbacks, and 15′ rear setbacks. Additionally, the width will allow for a 10-foot driveway (can be in the setbacks) to access the rear of the home, and the rear of the home will have room for parking two average-size cars. Each plan will have a rear entrance, not from a bedroom, which will provide direct access to a rear parking area or deck.

To assure that the homes can be resold to households within 140% of AMI (Area Median Income), the builder will not be allowed to contract with any Buyer to build anything other than the three floor plans and options presented in the Proposal and accepted by WCWFHC.

The Builder will be required to build a model home, to be used as offices and as a model of a typical home. The Builder may contribute to the marketing effort and will receive points based on the extent of involvement in the marketing effort.

2.2 WORK SCHEDULE

The Builder will begin entering into Construction Contracts with buyers when the development of lots is completed and the buyers are qualified. WCWFHC guarantees no starting date or any number of buyers, but provides the following information so that the Builder may estimate the starting date and the rate and timing of Construction Contracts with buyers:

1. After selection of the Builder, WCWFHC is required to provide underwriting information concerning the Builder for the CWHIP grant.

2. The underwriting process is estimated to take 4 to 6 weeks, after the Builder is selected by WCWFHC.

3. After the underwriting is completed, WCWFHC will begin development of the lots (construction of the infrastructure). This is estimated to take 6 to 9 months.

4. During the period that the lots are being developed, WCWFHC will solicit and accept reservation agreements from prospective buyers.

5. After lots are ready for house construction, Builder will proceed expeditiously with Construction Contracts and construction of homes.

2.3 ALTERNATE OR ADDITIONAL PROPOSAL.

Although not required, any Builder may add a proposal to completely develop Wolf Creek, pursuant to the terms of the Contract to Develop. The Contract to Develop contains the requirements if the Builder chooses to add a proposal to develop and, if requested by the Builder, will be added to the Request Package. Generally, the proposal to develop would be a proposal by the Builder to, in addition to providing turn-key houses, totally develop Phase One, including financing, constructing infrastructure, marketing, and all other activities involved in development. The portion of the CWHIP grant to be applied to each closing will be available as provided in the Contract to Develop.
