Request for Qualifications – Consultant Services

City of Bristol


The City of Bristol, Connecticut is seeking a qualified planning consultant to help develop a plan for the "West End" neighborhood, one of the oldest and most highly urbanized neighborhoods in this city of 61,000 persons. The West End has historically been – and continues to be – the city's residential point of entry for a variety of ethnic groups: Italians, Poles, French-Canadians, and Germans in earlier years, Hispanics today. Through the years, as well as currently, it has embodied the working-class values with which Bristol residents proudly define their community. In Bristol, the West End neighborhood has been known for its close-knit social network of family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

Within the last year or two, the convergence of a number of circumstances in the neighborhood have shaped the city's decision to examine and assess the current "state of the neighborhood" and to develop a comprehensive neighborhood plan for the area.

The selected consultant will examine in a comprehensive manner a variety of conditions in the West End (such as demographics, land use/zoning, transportation, housing, market dynamics, and public safety), analyze the findings, and assist the city and neighborhood stakeholders (residents, business owners, etc.) in developing a vision and a series of strategies and recommendations designed to (1) build upon the history and positive resources of the neighborhood; (2) help to strengthen and sustain the neighborhood; and (3) serve as a guide for future development and new public and private investment in the neighborhood.

Submissions must be received on or before 11:00 A.M., EDT, on Friday, September 28, 2007.
