The City of Peekskill (“City”) is a vibrant community situated along the Hudson River with a variety of natural resources adding to the beauty and quality of life of Peekskill residents. The goal of the City’s Natural Resources Inventory (“NRI”) is to identify areas of local and area importance including but not limited to water resources, bedrock geology and soils, scenic and cultural resources, climatology, etc. The NRI will become a valuable resource to the city and its residents by serving as a foundation for comprehensive land use planning and future environmental programs and projects.
As such, the City of Peekskill seeks a qualified specialized firm or individual (the “Consultant”) experienced in the preparation and development of NRIs in the Hudson River Valley with relevancy in data collection and fieldwork, websites and mapping, scientific writing, and public engagement. The Scope of Services is detailed in Section 3 of the RFP.
This NRI is made possible through a grant from the Hudson River Valley Greenway Association.

The Village of Larchmont is seeking a qualified developer to re-envision the Village Parking lot adjacent to the northbound platform of the Metro North train station.

The City of Norwalk through the Planning and Zoning Department, is soliciting request of qualifications (Request for Qualifications/RFQ’s) from qualified Professional Traffic Engineering firms for on-call traffic engineering and peer review services. The Department intends to retain one or more firms to be utilized on an as-needed basis at the discretion of the Zoning Commission to advise and comment on applications when the Commission concludes that outside expertise related to traffic engineering is needed to assist them when reviewing an application. The requirements of this project are outlined in greater detail under Section 2 Scope of Work/Project Specifications.
The City is pursuing the creation of a Transportation Master Plan with support from the State Department of Administration Division of Statewide Planning. With direction from city leadership, the Plan will establish a vision for transportation infrastructure and services based on an objective assessment of existing conditions and a projection of future demand. The City will use the process to establish short- and long-term improvements to its transportation planning, policies, management, capital improvements, and maintenance activities. This will be supported by regional transportation improvements to support Newport. The Plan will support the City’s Comprehensive Plan (and be incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan through reference), as well as other City goals for preservation, green and complete streets (including sufficient pedestrian accommodation on every right-of-way), sustainability, resiliency, equity, and community and economic development. The project area encompasses the entirety of Newport (11 square miles, 7 land, 4 water) population ~25,000) as well as critical transportation nodes approaching Newport (e.g. West and East Main Roads, TF Green Airport, Wickford Junction, Kingston Station, North Kingstown, Providence Station, Route 1A Park and Ride, Tiverton Park and Ride, Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority, Kennedy Plaza, Fall River Bus Terminal, and Providence and Fall River ferry terminals).
The NRI and OSP will cover all of the approximately 31 square miles in the Town of Poughkeepsie, including portions of the Village of Wappingers Falls (located in the Town). The project will include a public outreach process. Preparation of the NRI and OSP will enable the Town to identify priorities for natural resource protection and to explore, and ultimately select, community-supported tools and techniques for conserving these resources. This work will set the stage for future implementation of conservation projects by creating community consensus about conservation goals and priorities and about appropriate methods (such as regulations, incentives, and perhaps public funding) for completing such projects.
The Town has received a grant from the DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program and executed a contract with New York State. We are now soliciting proposals/qualifications from planning consultants through a competitive process. The selected consultant will collaborate with the CAC and Town staff to develop the NRI and OSP.

The purpose of the Plan is to identify strategies that decrease single occupant vehicle (SOV) trips, vehicle miles traveled and associated vehicle emissions, increase the availability and use of alternative travel modes, with the intent to achieve more efficient parking management and utilization.
The project will build on numerous initiatives by city, state, federal, and nonprofit partners to conduct a comprehensive site assessment and develop a preliminary design to enhance dunes along the Atlantic shoreline of the Rockaway Peninsula into an extensive, biodiverse, and habitat-rich dune system.
Aside from RISE, the other key project stakeholders include the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (NYC Parks), the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The project’s approach focuses on using innovative strategies that incorporate design and management principles that improve the ecological function of the dunes, while prioritizing biodiversity and community engagement. Building upon the documented power of extensive and biodiverse dunes in protecting homes and community infrastructure in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, the plan would be the first step in a multi-phased dune enhancement project.
Currently, the local shoreline is subject to damages from wave attack and run-up created by hurricanes and nor’easters that can result in extensive property damage and loss of life. The project will draw on multi-sector and community expertise to develop a preliminary dune enhancement plan that will inform long-term coastal dune enhancement efforts. This project will also develop a 10-year monitoring framework, which will measure ecological, economic, and community benefits of an ecologically diverse dune system. This project will lay the groundwork for a long-term coastal dune enhancement and maintenance program, with on-the-ground partners, to catalyze workforce training and community stewardship programs in a community with a lack of economic opportunity for local young people. The project will develop a scalable and replicable engagement process that can be used for New York City-wide coastal shoreline visioning by city and state partners.
