Request for Proposals

The Community Development Department is requesting proposals from urban design and planning consulting firms interested in providing consulting services for the preparation of an amendment to the Manabe-Ow Business Park Specific Plan. The amendment will require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in compliance with CEQA.  The Specific Plan Amendment will require input from stakeholder groups and the public. There are existing deed restrictions on the Specific Plan property that were agreed upon by the Watsonville Farm Bureau, Watsonville Wetlands Watch, County of Santa Cruz and LAFCO as conditions of annexation. The developer and the City will be responsible for communicating directly with these parties regarding proposed land use modifications. The proposal should include a scope of work for environmental services in compliance with CEQA.
