Specifications include, but are not limited to:. The City of Gresham intends to update the geoprocessing models and development code language related to its existing Habitat Conservation Area Overlay (HCA), Environmentally Sensitive Restoration Area-Pleasant Valley Land Use District (ESRA-PV), and Environmentally Sensitive Resource Area-Springwater Land Use District (ESRA-SW). The City is also in the midst of working with FEMA and STARR on updating the Citys regulatory flood maps and anticipates the need for minor Floodplain (FP) Overlay language changes for the new maps. The City also wishes to update the FP code language more substantially to reflect newer state and federal guidelines intended to ensure Endangered Species Act considerations are included in floodplain management decisions. The City is therefore requesting proposals from qualified land use planning and natural resources firms/teams with the relevant expertise to comprehensively review existing challenges with each of these four sections of development code (FP, HCA, ESRA-PV, and ESRA-SW), to update and simplify these sections of existing development code language, and to increase consistency among the HCA, ESRA-PV, and ESRA-SW code sections. Review of inputs to the three separate geoprocessing models supporting the HCA, ESRA-PV, and ESRA-SW maps that support these regulations will be necessary (no floodplain modeling will be needed). A minimum amount of field data collection may be needed to ensure adequate defensible field data is on file to support the geoprocessing model inputs. The goal in updating the geoprocessing models is to increase their accuracy by incorporating newer, more accurate resource mapping data. The City also wishes to make the model inputs more easily understood by planning map users, and to explore potential areas of increased consistency between the varied geoprocessing models which were created by different teams at different times, using different model inputs. The City is not looking to significantly alter the degree of resource protection currently provided. Assessment of and proposed alterations to the existing geoprocessing models will be coordinated with and supported by Gresham GIS staff. The revised regulations must be easily implementable, must effectively integrate with existing Gresham development regulations, and support implementation of the C i t y s C o m p r e h e n s i v e P l a n . The resulting regulations will represent a more efficient method of compliance with Oregons Statewide Planning Goals 5, 6, and 7 , a n d M e t r o s U r b a n G r o w t h M a n a g e m e n t F u n c t i o n a l P l a n T i t l e s 3 a n d 1 3 . The c o n s u l t a n t s efforts will include support of the public involvement process as well3 RFP 16-33 as activities necessary to gain approval by the City of Gresham Planning Commission and adoption by the Gresham City Council. The desired time for completion of the revisions, including approval by the Gresham Planning Commission and adoption by City Council is Summer/early Fall 2017
