The City of Dover in Delaware has decided to cancel the launched request for proposal (RFP) for the development of a parking project and mixed-used commercial development. 

The City Government has decided to withdraw the tender on July 22 after discovering the costs associated with the plans. One of the proposals submitted was incomplete and did not mention the fee for the parking service. A daily rate of US$12.5 is seen to recoup the costs of building the garage.

The project involves the design, building and financing of the parking garage without using taxpayer funds as part of the RFP. The selected developer would manage and collect money from the garage and on-street parking in the downtown area as part of the compensation from the development.

On February 2019, the City of Dover has launched the RFP for a parking facility, implementation of a parking metering system, and commercialization of an area located in the downtown region of the city. The tender has closed on May 29, 2019.
