Project Design 

The Engineering Department is responsible for the design of improvements to public facilities, either through in-house design or through the employment of professional design consultants having the relevant expertise and experience.  Consultant selection for larger capital projects is done through Request for Proposals (RFP), and selection is based on qualifications.  City code also allows the consideration of cost in the selection process for design professionals.  RFP’s are advertised in the Hood River News and in the Portland Daily Journal of Commerce.
