The City of Twinsburg (City) is seeking proposals from qualified and experienced planning consultants (Consultant) to prepare a comprehensive update of the City’s Zoning and Development Regulations (Zoning Code). The current Zoning Code has seen many and varied additions and revisions since 1989, but these updates haven’t established a Zoning Code framework that supports a more user-friendly, modern and unambiguous document.
PROJECT PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND
The City seeks a comprehensive update to its Zoning Code that is rooted in a vision for a dynamic central area, supports business development, increases the potential for sustainability and maintains an emphasis on a small-town quality of life. The City anticipates the update process to include extensive public outreach with a focus on performance standards, permitted and accessory uses and internal processes related to development applications. A Consultant that recognizes the importance of public outreach is highly desired. The City is envisioning an up-to-date Zoning Code that is supported by the Twinsburg community.
The City is seeking proposals from qualified Consultants with zoning and planning expertise to work with the City’s Planning, Economic Development, Building, and Law Departments to identify essential updates to the Zoning Code. Attending public meetings with residents, community stakeholders, Twinsburg’s City Council, and the Planning Commission will be an important component of the process.
Interested consultants are advised to carefully review the information outlined in this RFP and respond accordingly. All proposals must be received no later than 4:00pm EST on Monday, December 5th, 2022.
