In Spring 2020, Mariposa County was awarded a grant from the Caltrans Sustainable Communities Transportation Planning grant program to support the development of the Integrated Mobility and Housing Strategy (IMHS). This project will combine stakeholder engagement and a range of analytical techniques to identify a pragmatic strategy for developing coordinated workforce housing and mobility projects in Mariposa County.
A partnership between Mariposa County and Yosemite National Park, this collaborative effort will evaluate the suitability of strategic sites for medium- and high-density housing outside of the park, determine the mobility enhancements needed to connect future housing nodes with employment opportunities within the park, and recommend a strategy for jointly implementing the housing and mobility investments needed to connect where Mariposans live to where they work. By aligning enhancements in mobility (including both regional transit and active transportation modes) with future investments in multi-family housing, this project will result in a better connected, more livable, and equitable rural community.
Request for Qualifications
The Planning Department is looking for interdisciplinary consultant teams that can collaborate with the project partners to successfully deliver the IMHS. Given the flexible project deliverables and the pandemic-related uncertainty for both the project’s planning context and process, the Planning Department expects a dynamic project development process that occurs in tandem with the hired consultant.
You can view the full Request for Qualifications, which includes additional details about the project and timeline, at this link. Responses will be due October 5, 2020 at 2:00 PM local time.
