Product (RFP/RFQ/RFI/Solicitation/Tender/Bid Etc.) ID: EXTRA-6700

Government Authority located in Lexington, South Carolina; USA based organization looking for expert vendor for comprehensive plan and professional third-party consulting services.

[A] Budget: Looking for proposal

[B] Scope of Service:

(1) Vendor needs to provide comprehensive plan and professional third-party consulting services to undertake appropriate land use planning processes, environmental analysis, economic, demographic, transportation and fiscal analyses, coordinating community engagement and public participation with the result being the preparation of an entirely new comprehensive plan for the county. This plan shall be prepared in accordance with established and well-recognized state laws, as well as conventional, systematic planning practice and design, serving to create an innovative, visionary, policy guideline document accounting for rapid growth, design principles, as well as the continued utilization of existing and functional, conservative county land use planning policies to the government authority located in Lexington, SC.
- Provide a completely new, stand-alone, comprehensive plan, providing a 10-year, long-range vision for a local government that has not seen or utilized such a document in quite some time. This document will include all of the mandatory surveys and studies upon which the data is based, inventories of existing conditions, a statement of needs and goals and implementation strategies with general time frames and funding alternatives to support the communities needs within a minimum of the nine required planning elements. The production shall include coordination with all local school districts, infrastructure providers, municipalities, adjoining counties and other governing jurisdictions, as may be affected by such a Plan.
- As the Comprehensive Plan has been identified as a priority project for county council and as the county has a very sophisticated and robust GIS database, the chosen firm shall work with leadership and designated planning, GIS, community development, emergency services and public works department staff to collect and review all available inventory data, as necessary to complete a state-of-the-art and up-to-date comprehensive plan. Some of the topics critical to the completion of the Plan, keeping in mind the relatively rural and conservative developmental characteristics of the County, at the same time ensuring compliance with the State Enabling Legislation, include consideration for the following:
• A strong emphasis on performance-based zoning, however, to include some Euclidean influences, as well;
• Utilization of a system of street classifications as a secondary land use management tool, in addition to current subdivision, landscape and open space ordinances and land development manual;
• A strong emphasis and utilization of GIS data, mapping and graphic representations;
• Strong GIS staff support (five staff) and database capability, yet minimal Planning staff support (one staff Planner, who is also the Department Head);
• Strong conservative political environment supporting land use rights, personal responsibility, freedom of choice, limited governmental interference, an emphasis on compatibility and management verses control, compliance and burdensome regulatory environment;
• Necessity for extensive community outreach, social media involvement and public, citizen participation, which could be fashioned after the existing seven planning areas already established as a result of the progression of the implementation of zoning areas;
• Limited current Council experience utilizing and undertaking a Comprehensive Plan Update process;
• Relatively rural County, including fifteen smaller municipalities, with several partially declining older neighbourhood areas where older communities are experiencing less support and/or appreciation, compared to the newer, rapidly growing areas and developments to the north, south and west;
• Limited previous efforts and support for a completely new write-up of such a Plan; and
• The County is on the verge of possibly implementing new initiatives, such as Development Impact Fees and Capital Sales Taxes, school district facility freezes and growth moratoriums, as well as the challenge of the general perception of rapid growth and development in the Greenfield areas of the County, North, South and West, etc.
(2) All questions must be submitted no later than November 8, 2019.
