Midtown Santa Fe - Civil Engagement
See Bid/RFP documents for additional submission details.
1.A PROJECT INTRODUCTION
The City of Santa Fe (“City”, “Client”) is issuing this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to established
organizations with a mission dedicated to community engagement and development (“Civic
Engagement Team”, “Consultant”). The Civic Engagement Team must have the capacity to
create, organize, and facilitate a variety of methods to meaningfully engage a broad spectrum
of Santa Fe’s communities that represent the rich diversity of the city’s neighborhoods and
demographics, cultures, histories, and perspectives. The civic engagement approach shall be a
model of collaboration between government, community organizations, philanthropy, and
businesses to engage people to develop viable policies and policy recommendations to inform
the development of Midtown Santa Fe.
The City is considering various options for the disposition and development of the Midtown
Property, a 64.22-acre site (“Midtown Property”, “Site”) with approximately 32 existing
buildings that have strong reuse potential, and significant open space that present viable
opportunities for new residential and mixed-use development, as well as open space for civic
events and recreation. The Midtown Property is geographically located at the center of the
city, which presents an unprecedented public/private opportunity to address some of the City’s
equitable and sustainable development objectives.
