  • City of Norwalk CT Affordable Housing Plan

    The City of Norwalk Planning & Zoning Office is soliciting proposals to develop the Norwalk Affordable Housing Action Plan (the “Plan”) for the City to actively address the potential economic, environmental, and social equity impacts to Norwalk’s affordable housing needs. An Affordable Housing Plan is required by the State of Connecticut through State Statute 8-30j and we intend to utilize the final product of this Request for Proposals to meet the requirements outlined in the State statute. The Housing Action Plan should provide comprehensive, and alternative, recommendations for targeted regulatory changes, strategic investments, and other tools. Though Norwalk does not currently have an active Affordable Housing Plan in place, current affordable housing initiatives are based off of goals outlined in the 2019 Plan of Conservation and Development for the City.

  • The City of Greensburg Comprehensive Plan Update RFP

    The City of Greensburg is seeking the services of a qualified team of Consultants to guide a highly focused, collaborative design process for the Comprehensive Plan Update Project for the City of Greensburg.
    The objective is to provide City Council, Planning Commission, City staff, City residents and the business community with a compelling vision and plan that can be used as a tool to guide decision-making and development to the year 2040.
    The scope of work includes the development of internal and external communication processes, assessment including any background research that needs to be completed prior to the development of the plan, planning a shared City-wide vision and development goals, outreach to ensure public involvement throughout each phase of the project and monitoring of data and information collected.

Each should have the ability to stand on its own if necessary.

A Work Group will evaluate proposals based on a series of criteria including: capacity and capability; relevant experience; quality of proposed work plan and budget; understanding of local context; and innovation and creativity.
