Land Economics Study

  • Department:Administration

The City of Sausalito (“City”) is requesting interested land economics firms to submit a proposal to develop a Land Economics Study.  The Land Economics Study will study the City’s business districts including the Downtown/Retail area, Caledonia Street and the Marinship Area. 

The goal is to provide the City with a report that identifies the potential of each business district over the next 20 years.  This will include a look at how these areas will evolve, what uses will be supported by market forces and recommended strategies that the City can pursue to increase the success of the existing and future businesses in Sausalito.

The City Council will consider the results of the Land Economics Study developed by the selected firm in the development of an Economic Development Strategic Plan.  The study results are also likely to be considered when studying the City’s current zoning and land use designations and other policies which may impact the viability of current and future potential business land uses.  The report may also be used as input to the General Plan Update process now underway.

This Request for Proposal (RFP) provides information on the City of Sausalito, the City’s planned Economic Development program, the Land Economics Study project, the required scope of services, the consultant selection process, and the minimum information that must be included in the RFP Response.  Failure to submit information in accordance with this RFP's requirements and procedures may be cause for disqualification.

The City of Sausalito (“City”) invites qualified firms (“Proposers”) to submit proposals for the Land Economics Study (“Project”), which may lead to award of a professional services agreement (“Agreement”), using the form attached as Attachment 6, Professional Services Agreement.  If the City decides to award the Agreement to a Proposer, it will be a fixed price agreement.
