City of University Place, WA Seeks Consultant to Develop Regional Growth Center Form-Based Code

The City of University Place, WA is seeking a qualified consultant to prepare a form-based code, meant to supersede portions of the present zoning ordinance and other local land development regulations that apply to the University Place Regional Growth Center(RGC). Additionally, the consultant would create street design standards for streets, sidewalks and associated facilities within the RGC and surrounding community.

In 2017, the City Council adopted a Subarea Plan for the RGC, which encompasses a 481-acre commercial, multi-family, and mixed-use area that represents the heart of the community.  The Subarea Plan represents the community’s vision and proposes to strengthen the identity, character, and economic development opportunities within each of the three districts through a framework of redevelopment that can be adapted to market conditions. The Subarea Plan directs the City to adopt regulations including a form-based code that may be used to enhance, or in some cases transform, neighborhoods within each subarea district through private infill and redevelopment activities and public investment.

Proposals must be received by Monday, October 22, 2018. 

The full RFQ is available on the City of University Place’s website.
