Hampton Roads Region – Portsmouth and Chesapeake Joint Land Use Study
The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (Organization) is soliciting proposals from qualified Offerors to establish a contract for community planning services to support the Hampton Roads Region – Portsmouth and Chesapeake Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). The Organization and partnering cities (Portsmouth and Chesapeake) are seeking a consultant with experience in local community planning addressing a wide range of issues, including land use, transportation, community infrastructure, and resiliency. The overall goal of this study is to provide information and specific recommendations to the participating cities to address local issues affecting the military installations involved in the project and promote long-term community development goals.
The Hampton Roads Region – Portsmouth and Chesapeake JLUS will include several Navy installations in Portsmouth and Chesapeake: Naval Support Activity (NSA) Hampton Roads – Portsmouth Annex (Naval Medical Center Portsmouth; Naval Station Norfolk – Navy Supply Center (NSC) Craney Island Fuel Terminal; Norfolk Naval Shipyard; and Norfolk Naval Shipyard associated facilities, including Public Private Housing Areas (The Village at New Gosport and Stanley Court), Scott Center Annex, South Gate Piers, and St. Julien’s Creek Annex.
The JLUS will be a community-driven, cooperative, strategic planning process among the Cities of Portsmouth and Chesapeake and the seven (7) Navy facilities. This process will encourage local governments, together with the Commonwealth, to work closely with the military installations to implement measures that prevent the introduction of or address existing incompatible civilian development and other conditions that may impair the continued operational utility of the military facilities, and to preserve and protect the public health, safety, and welfare of those living near an active military installation.
It is anticipated that the Organization will award one (1) contract for a period of performance of approximately twelve (12) months.
Any Offeror desiring consideration must submit a proposal. All Offerors shall have prior experience with providing community planning and related services for other municipal organizations, including, but not limited to, comprehensive planning, transportation planning, infrastructure planning, resiliency planning, and fiscal impact analysis.
