City Of West Hollywood Housing Element Technical Background Report

City of West Hollywood

The City of West Hollywood is 1.9 square miles in size, and was incorporated in 1984. It is bounded by Beverly Hills to the west and Los Angeles to the north, east and south. Prior to incorporation, the City was part of unincorporated Los Angeles County. The city has 37,000 residents and over 3,500 businesses. The city has a large renter population, which makes up over 78% of the city population.

The City of West Hollywood is beginning work on a comprehensive General Plan Update. The Housing Element's Technical Background Report will provide information necessary for the General Plan's process and outreach, and it is an essential component of the Housing Element itself. West Hollywood's draft Housing Element must be submitted to California Department of Housing and Community Development in April 2008.

The City is seeking the services of a professional consulting firm with the data collection, analysis, and presentation experience necessary to complete a Housing Element. Interested firms should have a reputation for outstanding service to its clients, and a proven track record of successfully completing complex planning documents on time and within budget.


The City of West Hollywood is requesting proposals for preparation of a Technical Background Report for its 2006 – 2011 Housing Element. The scope of work will include at a minimum:

A. All acquisition, research, analysis and presentation of information necessary to prepare the Housing Element Technical Background Report.

B. Production of a minimum of two drafts and one final document.

C. Production of summary and public presentation materials.

D. Approximately twelve meetings with staff and four public meetings.

The scope of work may be expanded to include preparation of the housing element, or additional technical background work.

Proposals should be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 31, 2007.
