To support the development of the Portland Off-road Cycling Master Plan, the Bureau of Planning & Sustainability released a Request for Proposals for a consultant team to provide system planning, technical analysis and community engagement services. In particular, the City sought proposals from firms with experience in planning sustainable off-road cycling trails and facilities and in facilitating effective and transparent community involvement processes that emphasize resolving conflicts and building shared understanding, visions and approaches for the use of public lands.
After receiving and evaluating multiple strong proposals, the City intends to negotiate and award the contract to the Toole Design Group. They were the highest scoring proposer and were deemed the most qualified proposer for the project. The contract will require City Council’s review and approval before work begins.
