The City of Fairfield is soliciting Request for Proposals (RFPs) from a qualified planning consultant or team (herein referred to as “consultant”) to lead the City in the preparation and adoption of an update to the comprehensive plan. The City seeks a consultant that will guide the creation of a community vision, growth and development policies and implementation strategies. The plan should provide clear and defined guidance and serve as a framework for the development of future land use policy.
The purpose of this RFP is to provide guidelines for the submission of proposals. The process to establish the comprehensive plan will be critical to its success and must ensure that the final document reflects the desired vision for the community as determined by citizens, elected/appointed officials and other key stakeholders. The City is seeking an innovative plan with a novel approach to the comprehensive planning process. Proposals must reflect the ability to provide a full range of expertise in all areas needed to develop a complete comprehensive plan. Proposals must identify experience with public outreach, facilitation of public meetings and public relation campaigns.
The plan should be designed in a way that allows for it to be used to update the City’s Planning and Zoning Code in order to ensure that the goals of the Plan can be accomplished. The update to the City’s Planning and Zoning Code is not a part of this RFP.
