Salinas: w/ *REVISED RFP* Green City Master Plan. Develop a "Green Streets" Master Plan, prepare five (30%) concept designs, develop an ACP program, provide standard details for GSI. Small amounts of rain throughout a watershed incrementally add up to large volumes of runoff downstream. Similarly, small changes to stormwater runoff treatment in a watershed can cumulatively result is significant improvements to overall watershed health. For this reason, the City of Salinas is seeking to retain qualified professional engineering services to support compliance with the pollutant load and runoff volume reduction requirements in its Phase 1 MS4 permit1 through the development of a “Green City” Master Plan. To accelerate progress toward permit compliance and articulate the linkage between the City’s financial investment in its stormwater program and the multitude of community benefits, the City took a strategic step to develop a green street conceptual design for the area around Closter Park1 to serve as the showcase first implementation of a “green street” in Salinas. While this concept will provide a tangible example of the multi-faceted environmental, community, and economic return from green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) projects, the potential Citywide opportunities and benefits can only be demonstrated through a thoughtful, systematic master plan that emphasizes “complete streets and communities” elements for stormwater management, active transportation, pedestrian safety, and climate resiliency. To maximize Citywide benefits and influence, the plan must also integrate across private and public land by defining multi-benefit alternative stormwater compliance pathways that can be co-leveraged by the City, property owners, and developers. The project is federally funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The Consultant must be familiar with all applicable local and federal guidelines and requirements of the ARPA Program funding. The City reserves the right to adjust the scope of services as deemed appropriate and necessary.
