The County of Greene is hereby requesting proposals from qualified, multidisciplinary professionals in the fields of urban planning, architecture, traffic and civil engineering, economic and community development and computer visualization to assist in the audit of the current Zoning Ordinance, zoning map, and design guidelines for the Ruckersville and Corner Store growth areas. The audit will provide recommendations for amendments needed to be in compliance with the State Code and be consistent with the goals and implementation strategies found in the Future Land Use chapter of the Greene County Comprehensive Plan. The current Zoning Ordinance was adopted in 1975 and has been amended periodically from time to time. In its current form, the Ordinance fails to meet the County needs in several areas. It is a conventional use-based, “Euclidean” model ordinance that segregates uses and inhibits the ability to create a discernible village or town center by facilitating a mix of commercial, office, and residential uses. The County desires professional planning and zoning assistance to explore and develop a practical and useable code or a hybrid ordinance that incorporates the principals outlined in the Greene County Comprehensive Plan.

Bids are to be submitted in a sealed envelope clearly marked IFB# 2019-81100-002 Zoning Ordinance Audit to the following address: Mr. James F. Frydl Greene County Zoning Administrator P.O. Box 358 Stanardsville, VA 22973 No emailed or faxed proposals will be accepted.
