City of West Hollywood General Plan Update

City of West Hollywood General Plan Update

City of West Hollywood

The City of West Hollywood, California, invites professional planning and design firms, or a team of firms, to submit Statements of Qualifications to prepare a comprehensive update of the City's General Plan. The City anticipates entering into an agreement with the selected firm(s) based on a negotiated scope of work and fee not to exceed $800,000.

The City of West Hollywood, incorporated in 1984, is located in an urban and vibrant part of Los Angeles County and includes national destinations such as the Sunset Strip, the Avenues of Arts and Design, and a Gay and Lesbian nightlife area. The City is home to 37,000 residents, including a sizeable population of gays and lesbians, seniors, and Russian immigrants. The city maintains a diverse social and physical character, with a high quality of residential life. Although 1.9 square miles, the city has districts that offer a rich and varied history, with the majority of the city developed as medium density housing.

The General Plan Update process will develop a vision of what West Hollywood will be in the future, and the updated plan document will identify policies and pathways to achieve the vision. The plan should articulate the defining identity of West Hollywood, as well as evaluate current and future development, circulation, and resource pressures that will impact the City.

The project approach should be educational and highly participatory, leading to broad-based support. This will involve resolving competing expectations and interests and finding common ground. It is important for the consultant to demonstrate an ability to facilitate a thorough, innovative process of public participation, and the use of creative and effective strategies for balancing community input.
