Request for Proposals - Critical Areas Regulations and Shoreline Master Program Update - City of Kenmore Contract No. 17-C1813

Due: December 12, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Local Time

The City of Kenmore is seeking service providers qualified to provide consulting and research services in preparing an update to the City's critical area rules and Shoreline Master Program.  Bids must be completed and delivered by hand or mail by 4:00 p.m. on December 12, 2017.

Request for Proposal

Question received and answered on November 20, 2017:


In reviewing the RFP referenced above under the scope of work I noted that the Lidar mapping of geologically hazardous areas is covered under a separate contract.  My question is:  under this separate contract are Lidar maps being prepared that the contractor for the critical area update (RFP 17-C1813) will use to identify geologically hazardous areas or are the geologically hazardous areas being identified as part of this other contract and will be integrated into the master program update?


The Lidar maps will identify landslide hazard areas for the City, including the underlying mapping data.  It is our understanding at this point that the Lidar mapping effort will not address other geologically hazardous areas (seismic hazards, erosion hazards, etc.).  RFP 17-C1813 assumes that the landslide hazard area information will be incorporated into an update of the geologically hazardous areas map.


Additional Questions and Answers on November 29, 2017:

The first bullet under “scope of work” refers to a gap analysis of the critical areas code. Would this gap analysis also include a review of the City’s SMP (KMC Title 16, Division I)? Or would it just be limited to the City’s CAO (KMC Chapter 18.55) and flood damage prevention ordinance (KMC Title 16, Division II)?  RESPONSE:  The gap analysis is focused primarily on the CAO and flood damage prevention rules, although if there have been any significant changes to the SMA or shoreline rules since Kenmore’s SMP adoption, additional analysis may be necessary.

Along with an update of the City’s critical areas maps, would the City’s Shoreline Environment Designation map require review and potential revision?  RESPONSE: It would only require revision if new critical areas mapping (wetlands, for example) requires adjustment to the Shoreline jurisdiction boundaries, or if other new information warrants adjustments.

Just to confirm, would the “potential code amendments” referred to in bullet 3 include both the CAO and SMP code sections?  RESPONSE:  The project would include recommendations for SMP amendments if the SMA has changed or if new best available science information suggests that a change to the SMP is needed.

Will the City be revising the code itself? (Bullet 4 refers to ‘review of code amendments prepared by City staff’)  RESPONSE:  We anticipate that City staff will revise the code, with review and commenting by the consultant.
