City of New Westminster: EOI for Planning a Climate-friendly Neighbourhood 

DECEMBER 15, 2021 – The neighbourhood surrounding 22nd Street SkyTrain Station has been identified by the City for redevelopment, and this gives us an opportunity to fundamentally transform the area.

We want to create a bold vision for a transit-oriented eco-neighbourhood. To imagine this innovative new neighbourhood, we’re going to need some qualified help. We’re looking for a team of expert guides to help us imagine what a climate-friendly neighbourhood could look like and show us how we can take the first steps towards making it a reality.

We need an all-star team of experts to:

  • Develop, run and facilitate an energizing and innovative ideas competition, to be held in the summer of 2022.
  • Evaluate the ideas. Create a process to evaluate and choose the best ideas proposed, using your team’s expertise in various disciplines, along with Council and community feedback.
  • Create a draft vision. Summarize the entire process, competition ideas, and develop a draft vision so that Council, the community, and stakeholders have a chance to provide feedback.

The selected team will propose an innovative, creative, and considered approach to the work requested.

Submissions must emailed to nwpurchasing@newwestcity.ca by 3:00pm local Vancouver time Tuesday, January 18th. Submissions must be a maximum of 4 pages (no appendices).
