Planning Raleigh 2030:
An Update to the Comprehensive Plan for the City of Raleigh, 2010 – 2030

City of Raleigh, North Carolina, Department of City Planning
The City of Raleigh requests proposals from qualified consultants to assist the Department of City Planning (DCP)
B. Project Approach
The selected consultant team will work in partnership with the Department of City Planning and the Interagency Working Group to develop the plan. It is anticipated that DCP will take the lead with regards to public outreach with consultant advice and support; that certain routine elements will be overseen in house by City staff; but that the consultant team will be responsible for land use and data analysis and the bulk of the plan narrative, including key elements for which the City lacks the necessary capacity and expertise, and/or where new thinking and national best practices are needed.
