HELP! Our community is planning to issue a Request for Proposals for consulting services to prepare an Economic Development Strategic Plan. The primary objective is to define the market and gauge demand / absorption rates of a potential business park.
We are a large community (36 sq miles) on the urbanizing fringe of a metro area, and about 1/3 urbanized already. We recently adopted a Conservation Plan. In order to avoid implementation conflicts, I want to introduce Sustainable Development initiatives to the Economic Development Strategic Plan.
I am having some difficulty writing the scope of services, and I have found very few resources... Does anyone have any suggestions??
