Request for Proposal: UDO Code Assessment – Winston-Salem, NC

Name of Organization: Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Planning and Development Services


Location (City & State): Winston-Salem, NC

Name of RFP: UDO Code Assessment RFP

RFP Details / Description

The City-County Planning and Development Services Department invites qualified firms to submit proposals for consulting services to complete a comprehensive Code Assessment of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Unified Development Ordinances (UDO). The UDO includes regulations related to zoning and land use; subdivision of land; historic preservation; and environmental protection. The code was adopted in 1994 and has been subject to nearly 300 text amendments over the past 23 years. While these amendments have been necessary to keep the code up-to-date with community expectations and, to some extent, planning best management practices, these amendments have also made the ordinance more unwieldy and difficult to navigate. The City-County Planning Board wishes to conduct a Code Assessment to determine what non-substantive changes can be made to improve the user-friendliness and organization of the UDO.

How to Submit a Proposal

Private firms are invited to submit RFP responses for providing the requested professional consulting services must be submitted by 5:00 pm, September 29, 2017. Responses not delivered by this deadline will not be considered.
