NSURB seeks Planning Consultant

The NSURB is seeking a Planning Consultant to codify the goals and design objectives of the District Plan into a regulatory structure within the City of Bozeman’s Unified Development Code. 

RFP for Professional Planning Services

SUMMARY

Bozeman is a small city located in southwest Montana with a population of approximately 40,000. Bozeman has four Tax Increment Finance (TIF) Districts, one of which encompasses N. 7th Avenue which is largely comprised of automobile oriented, strip commercial development built in the 1960’s and 70’s. The N. 7th Avenue Urban Renewal District was established by the City of Bozeman in 2006 and a District Plan was adopted to remedy conditions of blight to create an active and attractive corridor with a distinct character.

Several strategies were adopted to achieve this goal including, but not limited to:

Scope of services will involve reviewing the adopted plans which guide redevelopment of the corridor and drafting recommending Unified Development Code (UDC) changes to the existing zoning standards for the M-1 and B-2 zoning Districts (including sign code) to create a new zoning district for N. 7th Avenue.   The goal is two-fold:

  1. Simplify the redevelopment process for properties within the N. 7th Avenue district by codifying the goals and design objectives into a consolidated regulatory structure. This includes allowed uses, dimensional standards and site development standards, specifically for access, parking, landscaping, and signs.   An incentive based regulatory structure is preferred for the new zoning district.
  2. Resolve the areas of conflict between the District Plan and the Transportation Plan.  This includes a determination of the minimum standards for public right-of-way improvements required for redevelopment. 

Deadline: September 5th, 2012
