District 1 Neighborhood Plan
On December 13, 2019, City of Clive issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the development of a comprehensive Neighborhood Plan for the eastern portion of the community (District 1). The City wants to develop an actionable Neighborhood Plan that includes review and recommendation for improvement of multiple elements of the neighborhood, including land use, housing, the trail network and park facilities, pedestrian connectivity, stormwater management, and flood mitigation.
In addition to the items generally listed above, two specific focus areas have been identified as part of the Plan. The first is an analysis of the current Flood-Prone Property Buyout Program which is currently guiding the use of resources being deployed towards the buyout of repetitively flood damaged properties along University Boulevard. The second is the development of a conceptual park/development master plan for the Linnan Park area, including the adjacent city-owned properties and aging apartment developments.
The City is currently accepting responses to the RFQ. Submittal deadline is January 22, 2020. Staff anticipates presenting a recommendation for the preferred consultant team at the March 12, 2020 City Council meeting.
An informational meeting for consultant teams interested in submitting a response to the RFQ was held on January 8, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at 1900 NW 114th Street.
