Proposals from small businesses, disabled veteran-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, firms owned by underrepresented ethnic groups and local firms are especially encouraged. Teams with a strong local presence, and a proven track record for successful design and implementation of public parks in San Diego are highly desirable.
