Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan City of Omaha

Omaha, NE

MAPA and the City of Omaha are soliciting qualifications to prepare a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. In accordance with Nebraska Consultants' Competitive Negotiation Act (Neb. Rev. Stat. ยง81-1712), the Brooks Act (40 USC 544), and 23 CFR 172.5, the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metropolitan Area Planning Agency is issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the City of Omaha Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. Firms are invited to submit qualifications with a statement of qualifications as outlined below. The MAPA website referred to in this document is located at

The City of Omaha is interested in improving upon the City's network of existing facilities and to develop new facilities to provide for improved and safer walking, bicycling, and other forms of micro-mobility (such as scooters) for transportation and recreational opportunities. The Omaha Master Plan as well as recent regional planning efforts including the Chamber's ConnectGO initiative and MAPA's Heartland 2050 have shown the community's desire to continue improving the quality of the active transportation network. This includes sidewalks, trails, and an expanded network of on-street bicycle facilities to complement the trail system.

This request invites consultants to submit qualifications for accomplishments of the items of work described below under Scope of Services. Responses shall be prepared and submitted in accordance with the requirements described in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). Once the firm is selected, a contract will be negotiated based on a mutually agreed upon scope of services. The purpose of this project is to create a City of Omaha Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. (The final plan title will be determined early on through the public engagement process). This plan will consolidate and build upon past planning efforts, setting forth the vision for a comprehensive network that utilizes a variety of facilities such as trails, bike lanes, bicycle boulevards, and other facilities, as well as providing policy and program recommendations focused on expanding participation by making walking, bicycling, and other active modes of transportation for daily needs safer, more comfortable, and more convenient.

The City of Omaha is the largest city in Nebraska, with a 2020 population of 478,000 residents in a 145 square mile area. A burgeoning cycling, walking, and running culture has been instrumental in establishing, growing, and maintaining Omaha's extensive trails network (about 135 miles in City Limits, 160 miles in our planning jurisdiction, and over 300 miles in the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metro Area) as well as our on-street improvements, bicycle parking facilities, bike share system, clubs and social groups, organized events, and competitions. The City of Omaha has been awarded a Bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community Award (last application in 2019) and received an honorable mention from the Walk Friendly Communities initiative in 2011.
