The City of New York is committed to achieving excellence in the design and construction of the capital program and building on the tradition of innovation. As part of this effort, Parks and Recreation is please to announce the following contracting opportunity:

The City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation (“DPR” or the “Agency”) is seeking an appropriately qualified Consultant to lead a neighborhood-wide resiliency planning feasibility study for the East Harlem neighborhood in Manhattan. The Agency anticipates awarding one contract as a result of this RFP. The goal of the study is to create a Vision Plan for a Resilient East Harlem, underpinned by comprehensive technical analyses, strong design and planning expertise, a thorough understanding of the community’s social resilience, and thoughtful community outreach. The Vision Plan will outline recommendations for feasible projects to increase coastal resiliency in the East Harlem neighborhood, that have multiple benefits to the community and parks system with the goal of reducing risks from the various impacts of climate change, including: sea level rise; increased precipitation; increased temperatures; and coastal storm surge, informed by the direct and indirect adverse impacts from Hurricane Sandy. Successful respondents will both (a) conduct a study of existing conditions and (b) provide a comprehensive design and engineering approach to urban coastal resiliency planning by simultaneously solving for coastal flood risk-reduction, upland drainage impacts, and open space planning. Another key component of this study is to identify opportunities to increase the community’s social resilience in the face of climate change. This study will be conducted in close collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency (ORR).

Copies of the RFP can be obtained at the Agency`s website,, the City Record`s website and at the Olmsted Center Annex, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Flushing, NY 11368 during the hours of 9:00AM to 4:00PM, Monday - Friday from April 17, 2017 to May 10, 2017.
