Bid Title: Request for Proposals for Coastal Vulnerability Assessment
Category: Professional Consulting
Status: Closed


The City of Malibu is interested in contracting with a highly qualified consulting firm experienced in sea-level rise (SLR) analysis and technical assessments to assist with the comprehensive updating of the City’s certified Local Coastal Program (LCP). The updating of the LCP will occur in two phases. The first phase, which is the focus of this RFP, addresses the vulnerability of the City’s coastline to sea level rise. This will be accomplished by conducting a vulnerability assessment and identifying a range of possible sea level rise adaptation strategies. The outcome will be a draft regulatory and adaptive strategies outline that will have been discussed in a Planning Commission public workshop. In addition, a summary report including options evaluation and recommendations based on Planning Commission workshop results will be created. These documents will be the basis for the development of draft Local Coastal Program policies in the second phase of the LCP update.
