The City of Atascadero Department of Community Development requests written responses to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for selection of a consultant team to provide professional services related to an update to the City';s General Plan. The qualified consultant(s) shall also prepare the environmental analysis of the completed general plan draft, and produce the necessary environmental document. The Consultant shall have a proven ability to assess a City's current conditions, and demonstrate knowledge of current State and local regulations as it applies to the completion of General Plan updates and CEQA compliance, including current knowledge of the latest California case law is it pertains to CEQA and Zoning Laws.
The focus of this project is to update the Land Use, Circulation, Noise, Safety, and Conservation and Open Space, Elements of the General Plan. Since the City';s Housing Element was updated and adopted in 2020 and is valid until 2028, the Housing Element will not be a part of the current update process, but can be used to inform and supplement this activity. The Consultant shall conduct extensive public outreach along with field studies, staff and public interviews, and research as necessary, analyze current and future trends, including advancements in technology, changes in consumer and workplace behaviors, and other local and regional trends that impact local land use and the economy. This analysis will help the City review and adjust policies and recommendations that will best meet the future needs of the community and extend the General Plan's horizon to year 2045. The updated General Plan will be based upon the results of a comprehensive visioning process and robust public engagement program to ensure that all facets of the community participate and are fully represented in shaping Atascadero';s future.
Upon consultant procurement, the consultant team will facilitate (with support from city staff) a joint public scoping meeting with City Council and Planning Commission in late 2021. The scoping meeting will provide direction on the development of a project scope of work, budget and timeline that fits the city';s needs. The City has budgeted approximately $1.1 M for Fiscal Years 2021-23 to complete the General Plan Update Process. This amount does not include City staff time. If remaining funds are available, the City is interested in updating the City';s Zoning Ordinance following adoption of the General Plan in order to implement the new Land Use Element and corresponding policies. This activity may be scoped as a supplemental activity.
The City anticipates the General Plan Update and EIR to be completed and ready for adoption within approximately 1-2 years from execution of the consultant contract.
