The City of Roseville, Minnesota invites proposals from qualified consultants to conduct a community-wide visioning process.

The City of Roseville seeks to retain a highly qualified consultant experienced in public participation methods and facilitation with diverse stakeholders. The visioning process must be inclusive and reach a broad audience with the use of innovative and inclusive public participation efforts. A variety of effective approaches must be included to ensure engagement with and participation by a broad and deep cross section of the community. The consultant will have experience with the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) foundations, planning and techniques; experience facilitating workshops and focus groups; as well as other strategies aimed at capturing widespread public input.

In 2006, a community-wide visioning process resulted in the Imagine Roseville 2025 report and the development of Community Aspirations. As the demographics of the community have changed since 2006, the City wishes to conduct a comprehensive public participation process to collaborate with stakeholders to determine if the current Community Aspirations are relevant and appropriate and make any additions or revisions as necessary. Additionally, the city is seeking to collaborate with stakeholders to develop and prioritize specific outcomes that will demonstrate the City is achieving the Community Aspirations. The City Council has indicated the importance of collaboration with stakeholders to establish a foundation for the City’s Strategic Plan for the next 10-year period.

The final day for consultant questions is May 27, at 3:00 p.m. RFP proposals are due June 10, at 12:00 p.m.

The RFP outlines the deliverables which include: 

  1. Overall Process Design 
  2. Develop and Implement a Public Involvement Plan 
  3. Develop a Communications Plan 
  4. Develop Materials 
  5. Analysis and Report 

Additionally, the RFP sets out evaluation criteria to assist with scoring proposals that are received. Aligned with the goals of the Strategic Racial Equity Action Plan, additional emphasis is placed on consultants that have demonstrated ability and experience in engaging stakeholders in traditionally underrepresented and under-engaged demographics.

Policy Objective

The city’s approved Strategic Racial Equity Action Plan (SREAP) as well as the city’s Racial Equity Narrative detail the city’s commitment to providing an inclusive community. Part of that includes improving engagement, and participation among community members, developing relationships and increasing collaboration with community leaders and organizations, following through on lessons learned through community members by committing to listen, learn and implement improved methods and practices to better serve the needs of all in the community. The objective is to ensure that the City’s strategic vision is directly informed by the Roseville community.
