General Plan Update

The City of Rohnert Park seeks proposals for professional consulting services to help staff complete a General Plan Update.  The City desires to retain the services of a consultant team experienced in the preparation of General Plans, fiscal/economic development plan, and environmental review to pre[are a strategic update of the City of Rohnert Park General Plan and accompanying Environmental Impact Report.

The last comprehensive update of the Rohnert Park General Plan was completed in 2000.  The goal of this project is to respond to changes in the community and in circumstances that affect the future direction of the city.  The General Plan serves as a blueprint to achieve the community's vision for the future of Rohnert Park.  This General Plan Update is not envisioned to be a wholesale rewrite, but rather a refresh of the 2000 General Plan Staff assumes that the vision, goals and a majority of policies of the 2000 General Plan remain valid and that only a strategic update is needed.

The updated General Plan will include all mandatory General Plan elements, an update to the Community Design Element and include a new focus area addressing economic development.  In addition, Sonoma Count and participating cities have completed regional climate protection strategies that should be incorporated into the General Plan as appropriate.  Goals and policies related to sustainability will be incorporated into existing elements.  The updated General Plan will be based upon the results of a comprehensive visioning process and public engagement program to ensure that all facets of the community participate fully in shaping Rohnert Park's future.
