Transportation Needs Study and Service Plan RFP

Alma Transit Center

Alma Transit Center is seeking a firm to complete a Transportation Needs Study and Service Plan.  This plan shall review existing transit demand in the ATC service area and identify how Transit can adapt to meet future needs (moving to a countywide transit system).  The plan will include a survey of Gratiot County residents to determine knowledge of the service, identify the pockets of citizens who have transportation needs, current and future use by county residents, purpose of destinations desired and trip generators.  The survey should also contain a method of measuring residents’ support for funding options (millage and fares).  Every resident of Gratiot County should have a reasonable opportunity to view and respond to the survey.  Out of the need to accommodate passengers to travel into Isabella County (City of Mount Pleasant), ATC provides 3 trips per day.  Based on this information along with an analysis of projected growth to a countywide transit system, the selected proposer will develop possible service options, including operational (staffing), equipment (service vehicles), and general capital requirements for the near future and for the next 3 to 5 years. Complete RFP here.

 Master Plan

Manistee County

The County of Manistee is seeking proposals from professional consulting firms/teams to provide professional and technical expertise for the preparation of the County Master Plan.

The current Manistee County Master Plan was developed in 2008 and adopted in January 2009. Per the Michigan Planning Enabling Act, every five years an adopted Master Plan should be reviewed, and a determination made if an update should occur. The Manistee County Planning Commission is recommending a rewrite of the 2008 Manistee County Master Plan.  The County will assist the Contractor in the development of a new Master Plan built around a new format. In addition to traditional goals of population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, employment, and land use.  A goal of the new Master Plan would be to see if the public supports the County moving to a single zoning ordinance with a joint County Planning Commission utilizing the same language regarding definitions, processes for variances, Planned Unit Developments (PUDs), and Special Land Uses (SLU), but retaining the municipalities own zoning districts.

 The full RFP can be found here and the proposal deadline is June 3, 2022.
