Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Town of Simsbury is requesting a statement of qualifications from independent consultants
with expertise in historic district handbooks, design review guidelines, and local government
procedures. This will be the first update to the handbook since the Historic District was
established in 1986. The handbook was reprinted in 2004, but no substantive updates have been
made to the document since its inception. The Historic District Commission has used its
handbook to successfully review and enforce improvements to historic properties made by the
property owners who live and work within the district’s boundaries.
