Commission amends contract for planning
With work under way on the Beaufort Civic Master Plan but with more than $20 million in upcoming planning and construction for the Boundary Street Corridor and related projects, the Beaufort Redevelopment Commission amended its contract for planning services with the Lawrence Group. The changes will better align the city’s needs with the services provided under the Office of Civic Investment, Beaufort City Manager Scott Dadson said.
“The agreement with Lawrence Group now runs through June 30, 2014, with only a slight increase in the contract amount addressing the complexities of developing the ‘Beaufort Code,’ which is the form-based zoning code,” Dadson said.
