TETON VALLEY, IDA – The City of Victor has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit bids from consultants to aid in updating the Victor Comprehensive Plan and Transportation Systems Plan—a process that will involve extensive public engagement and input.

Qualified consultants will have until August 2, 2019 to respond. Proposals will be evaluated over the course of August with the intent to execute a contract in September 2019.

After a contract is executed, the city expects the Comprehensive Plan and Transportation Systems Plan will be ready for adoption within 10 months. Once complete, both plans will set Victor’s vision for future community development. The documents will be used to further update the Land Development Code, as guiding documents in making land use and capital project decisions, and to support grant applications of projects that align with Victor’s vision.

Mayor Jeff Potter said, “This is the first step in a monumental and important process that allows the community to ask and answer the question, ‘Where do we go from here?’”

The Victor City Council identified an update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Transportation Systems Plan as a top priority for 2020 during the Council Retreat held on February 7, 2019.

Comprehensive Plan components include, but are not limited to, property rights, population, school facilities and transportation, economic development, land use, natural resources, hazardous areas, public services and facilities, transportation, recreation, special areas of significance, housing, community design, agriculture, and implementation.

The Transportation Systems Plan will address levels of service, alleys, highway corridors, transit options, a downtown parking analysis, technology, wayfinding, recreation enhancement, and connectivity and transportation corridors.
