Request for Proposals- Northern South Park Neighborhood Plan

Teton County and the Town of Jackson are seeking a qualified, multi‐disciplinary planning consulting firm to develop a neighborhood plan for the Northern South Park area. The neighborhood plan will focus on physical design, both public and private realm and site planning, as well as developing the related policies and tools necessary for successful implementation. The primary goal is to develop a community vision for this area, and to expand the affordable and workforce housing development opportunities in the community consistent with the vision and chapter goals identified in the soon to be updated 2012 Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan.
