City of Seattle Request for Proposals

Title:     Land Value Capture and Municipal Financing for Sea Level Rise Adaptation Infrastructure and Health Outcomes

Proposal Due Date:  Submissions are due June 13, 2022, by 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time unless amended by addenda.

The City of Seattle (City) Office of Sustainability & Environment (OSE) is seeking a qualified consultant team to develop a strategy to implement land value capture (LVC) and/or other revenue-generating municipal finance mechanisms to finance:

  1. infrastructure in the Duwamish Valley to protect the residential and industrial communities from expected sea level rise impacts, and,
  2. improvements to improve health, equity, and wealth building outcomes for residents (e.g., affordable housing, parks, workforce development, and other supportive services).

This will be done in partnership with the impacted communities, as part of a holistic strategy to establish the Duwamish Valley Resilience District (DVRD). A “Resilience District” is a geographic strategy, focused on adapting to flood risk and other climate change impacts, as part of a comprehensive approach to enable residents and businesses to thrive in place. The work will be managed through a partnership with the Office of Planning & Community Development (OPCD) and Seattle Public Utilities (SPU). Additionally, the work will require the Consultant to work closely with the City team and other consultants not part of this solicitation (community engagement, financing, and organizational development) to both co-design processes and undertake the work.

Optional Pre-Proposal Meeting: The City will host an online optional, pre-proposal meeting on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 10 a.m. Pacific Time. Please notify City contacts of your interest in attending the pre-proposal meeting, so that they can provide you with a link to the meeting and manage any technical issues that arise.

Project Budget:  $75,000
