Attorney Jill M. Barringer, chief procurement officer for the City of Everett, stands behind the four boxes containing the Requests for Proposals for the development of the old Everett High School located at 548 Broadway.

Jill M. Barringer, chief procurement officer for the City of Everett, has unsealed the Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for the development of the old Everett High School property on Thursday morning.

Four entities submitted bids to develop the 3.9-acre site located at 548 Broadway. They are Women’s Institute for Housing and Studio G Architects of Waltham; DAKOTA Partners of Waltham; NOAH of Waltham; and Stratford Capitol of Peabody. All four proposals are for the construction of housing on the site.

Barringer said a committee consisting of the mayor’s administration, city officials and residents will evaluate the development concepts in the non-price proposals and then unseal the price proposals.

The committee consists of Barringer, City Solicitor Colleen Mejia, Mayor’s Chief of Staff Melissa Murphy, Building Inspector John Field, Common Councilor Rosa DiFlorio, Alderman Michael Mangan, Alderman Robert Van Campen, and residents Leo Pizzano and Dave Pretti.

“A balance of the non-price and price proposals will be considered in determining whom, if anyone, gets awarded the bid,” said Barringer. “The whole process usually takes about 90 days.”
