REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
The City of Alhambra is seeking proposals from suitably qualified firms, individuals, and organizations to develop a Comprehensive Environmental Sustainability Plan (CESP) to review current activities and develop a list of sustainability policies, projects and programs that can enhance the integration of sustainable practices into the overall organization in a systematic, coordinated, and financially responsible manner.
The City desires a cleaner, safer, more vibrant and stable Alhambra through meaningful planning actions and outcomes. The CESP will help the City not only overcome the challenges of the existing urban setting, but also prevent further harm to the natural environment and protect human health and the general well-being of the community. In addition, the CESP will help the City align with county, state and national sustainability goals and provide needed structure to the City’s short-term and long-term resource management and investments. As expected, both Alhambra and the region will benefit from such carefully designed considerations, recommendations, and actions.
The development of this CESP shall be managed by the Management Services Department under the City Manager’s Office. Through the CESP, the City of Alhambra shall be better positioned to take effective and efficient steps toward sustainability and environmental goals.
