Chattanooga-Hamilton County RPA Request for Proposals

Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency is seeking a qualified firm to complete six large Area Plans for Chattanooga and Hamilton County. The scope of work will be the same for each Area and the work for each Plan will be done simultaneously, so much of the research and analysis can be undertaken as a single block. Each Area will, however, have its own community meetings, recommendations that are specific to it, and its own Plan document.

The primary purpose of Area Plans is to provide a general vision and guide for future development that balances growth with protection of the area’s natural resources, cultural history, and established neighborhoods. Working with the public to identify key issues is an integral part of each Area Plan process. The Area Plans will provide projections for anticipated growth, forecasts of school enrollment, a better understanding of land use, water and sewer needs and traffic impacts. Once adopted, Area Plans become the new policy guide to help elected officials, city staff, and private developers make decisions about zoning, capital improvements, and preferred locations for, and types of, development.

There are separate RFPs for both the City of Chattanooga and Unincorporated Hamilton County. There is more information about both of them below. Note that the files will automatically download to your computer.
