City of Prince Rupert Housing report and OCP amendments latest focus for RFP process through BC Bid

The City of Prince Rupert planning department is looking to update the City's Housing Report, along with making some amendments to the Official Community Plan. 

And towards those reviews, the Planning Department has issued a Request for Proposals through the provincial BC Bid program.

The Call for proposals was posted to the BC Bid website on Tuesday, providing for a synopsis of the City's focus for the work.

The purpose of this Request for Proposals is to solicit the best overall proposal for the provision of an updated Housing Needs Report and to review and propose amendments to the OCP for the City of Prince Rupert that builds upon the understanding developed in the updated Housing Needs Assessment, with respect to housing needs, while addressing current regulatory standards introduced in 2023 and local Council policy adopted since 2021.

The overview of the RFP provides a glimpse towards what the city would like to see as a final product.

The Project Overview digs a little deeper into the areas to be tackled as part of the initiative. 

The Current Housing Needs Report was delivered to City Council in December of 2022

Last year City Council put in motion plans for a Housing Acceleration Action Plan

Watching over the current project for City Hall is Planning Manager, Myfannwy Pope. 

The Deadline for expressions of interest in the work is April 24 at 8:30 AM
