The City of Belmont requests proposals from qualified firms with considerable experience in community design, land use, as well as environmental planning, economic analysis, historic preservation, and citizen participation, to prepare an update to the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The Comprehensive Land Use Plan was adopted in 2007, followed by an update focused on the Center City area in 2014. The City intends to build upon its existing plan (and not initiate development of a new plan) as part of the proposed update process. The Plan update will assist City staff, City Council, Planning Board, and other advisory committees to gauge the direction that citizens and various other stakeholders within the community would like to see. Consultant guidance is expected and strongly desired as to how a new plan document may capture changes in the market, be better formatted, utilized, and maintained by City officials and staff. The City’s goal is to complete the update by June 30, 2017.
