Downtown Strategic Action Plan (Plan 2033) Downtown Fort Worth, Inc.

Fort Worth, TX

Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. (DFWI), in partnership with the City of Fort Worth, Texas (City) and Trinity Metro (TM), invites firms to submit qualifications demonstrating competent professional services skills required to develop the next iteration of an inclusive, community-owned, Strategic Action Plan (SAP) for Downtown Fort Worth, Plan 2033. Proposers should have broad experience in visioning, urban design and planning, historic preservation, parking and transportation, market analysis, retail, housing and hospitality economic analysis, citizen outreach, and implementation.

Every ten years, DFWI partners with the City and Trinity Metro to produce a Downtown SAP. Plan 2023 was developed with input from volunteer committees, community stakeholders, the City, Tarrant County, Trinity Metro, neighborhood representatives, and the general public. Plan 2023 was adopted by the Fort Worth City Council in 2013 and incorporated into the City's Comprehensive Plan by reference. It is expected that Plan 2033 will follow a similar process.

A selection committee will evaluate and rank the firms/teams' qualifications based on the criteria below. It is anticipated that the top ranked three firms will be shortlisted. At the conclusion of the evaluation period, the highest ranked firm/team will be engaged in contract negotiations and, if successful, will be offered a contract for the project. If contract negotiations fail, the next highest ranked firm will be engaged as above and so on until a contract is negotiated or the shortlist is exhausted. The engaged firm will use a multi-disciplinary approach that combines local knowledge and leadership with best-practice expertise and perspective. The proposer may be a single firm or a team of firms or entities to provide the necessary breadth and depth of knowledge, skills, and abilities.

The SAP is a roadmap for DFWI and its partners to plan, advocate for, and promote a more robust, thriving, and productive downtown. This document informs work plans, public policy, priority development, and budgeting decisions. The SAP should clarify a vision and provide strategic guidance for all of the plan partners on these core areas of focus:

  • Business Development
  • Hospitality
  • Education
  • Housing
  • Retail, Arts, and Entertainment
  • Transportation
  • Urban Design, Open Space, and Public Art.

The selected firm will work closely with DFWI, as well as City and TM staff, to establish the framework, timeline, public outreach, and deliverables. DFWI anticipates that the planning process will take 12 months to complete and will begin in January 2022. The consultant will interact with DFWI and SAP partner staffs, a steering committee, subcommittees and, the general public.

DFWI through Public Improvement District #1, the City, and TM have allocated $150,000.00 for this process. All costs, fees and reimbursements should be within the $150,000.
