The Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is seeking proposals from firms and/or individuals capable of providing community and regional planning services to conduct the Southeast Area Transportation & Land Use Study.
The study is intended to provide the Nashville Area MPO and local community partners with a preferred vision for growth & development for the southeastern portion of the metropolitan area, and general land use and multi-modal transportation recommendations to guide the implementation of that vision. Interim and final study deliverables will be used by 1) local governments to update land use and transportation elements of their comprehensive plans, 2) local and regional transit providers to determine new transit service or service improvements within and along the corridor, and 3) the MPO as the basis for land use and transportation recommendations for the southeast portion of the planning area in the development of the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan.
The study will be the third of its kind in the MPO area since 2007. Previous studies are available on the MPO's website through the link provided below. While there may be similarities among the studies, the Proposer must not assume that the MPO is looking to fully replicate the approach and/or final deliverables from past efforts.
**As published in the RFP document. Please note that an earlier version of the website indicated a 2:00 PM CDT meeting time.
