Request for Proposals
Transit Oriented Development Overlay Zone Project
City of San Fernando
San Fernando, CA
Submittal Deadline: 08/08/2013
The City of San Fernando is seeking proposals from qualified individuals and/or firms for the implementation and administration of the City’s “City of San Fernando Transit Oriented Development Overlay Zone” that was awarded to the City as part of the LA County Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) 2012 Transit Oriented Development Planning Grant Program. Qualified consultants assigned to the position must have extensive experience working with the Los Angeles County MTA in the administration and reporting of grant funds and project milestones.
The proposed project consists of the preparation of a Transit Oriented District Overlay Zone for the areas on each side of San Fernando Road, Truman Street, and First Street, from the city limits on the north at Hubbard Street to Brand Boulevard on the south. The project area is linear and is immediately south of the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station, which is located in the City of Los Angeles, one block north of the San Fernando City Boundary.
The project area includes zoning districts along San Fernando Road and Truman Street that provide for a mixture of workplace commercial and light industrial uses. The project area along First Street includes two industrially zoned districts that provide for a mixture of industrial uses with high density residentially zoned land uses located immediately to the northeast along Second Street. The linear corridor along San Fernando Road, Truman Street, and First Street are located within 1/2 mike from the Metrolink Station and is a more appropriate area for transit-oriented development. Additionally, much of the area has been transitioning away from its historical commercial and industrial uses and much of the area is underutilized, with several vacant lots throughout project area.
