Economic Development Strategic Plan RPF

This City of Olathe and Olathe Chamber of Commerce have determined the need for an Olathe Economic Development Strategic Plan.

The City of Olathe and the Chamber of Commerce are seeking experienced, qualified firms to submit proposals for the development of an innovative Economic Development Strategic Plan addressing the City’s unique areas, character, assets, and opportunities. The plan will provide a road map for the city in determining where to allocate resources and identify priorities over a 10-year period in business attraction, retention, and expansion. The strategy is to be fact-based and market-disciplined and is to include specific action items geared towards creating new job opportunities, encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation, enhancing fiscal sustainability, investing in catalytic development areas, and increasing private investment throughout the city.

A detailed Request for Proposal is below and includes an Evaluation and Selection Schedule on page 19.
