Apr 24, 2017 6:30 PM Media City Council Regular Meeting

The City Manager stated that in February of 2017, the Coummunity Development Department issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ), seeking Professional Urban Planning Services to prepare and finalize the City's Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) of the Comprehensive Development Plan. The EAR is due in September of 2017. City staff reviewed the RFQ responses, evaluated the qualifications, interviewed the two firms, and ranked the respondents #1 and #2. Following Council's approval, a contract will be negotiated with the selected firm and a scope of services will come back to Council.

Mayor McDonald opened the public comment period. There being no one who wished to be heard, Mayor McDonald closed the public comment period.

After discussion, a motion was made to approve the rankings as submitted and authorize the City Manager (or designee) to negotiate a contract for the services, starting with the top-ranked firm.
