The City of Rowlett is updating our Strategic Plan to create a roadmap for achieving the City’s vision by providing high quality services, utilizing best practices, and promoting well-planned growth while enhancing our community’s sense of home. We are excited about updating the plan to reflect the priorities and values of Rowlett residents, businesses, and community stakeholders! We are inviting qualified firms interested in providing the professional planning services required to perform this update to submit proposals, for more information, please see the Request for Proposal (RFP) linked below.
A little history…
In 2005, the Rowlett City Council adopted the City of Rowlett Strategic Plan, a visionary long-range planning tool covering every aspect of the City from economic development to street infrastructure. The 2005 plan has served us well by propelling the City’s vision of being “a unique community where families enjoy life and feel at home.” However, as we continue to evolve from a bedroom community into a major economic center in the region, the time has come to update and modernize the City’s Strategic Plan. Now is the right time to assess and adjust the City’s strategic direction in response to our changing environment and conditions!
Realize Rowlett 2020
Planning is also underway for an update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan, Realize Rowlett 2020, which was adopted in 2011. This plan created a visionary and ambitious framework for future growth and development, which has yielded amazing results. Since the adoption of Realize Rowlett 2020, the City has undergone significant changes, including the opening of PGBT and the DART Light Rail Station, and defining the Bayside region. Although not in the scope of the RFP, this effort will bring synergy to the process as we update both our Strategic Plan and Comprehensive Plan over the same general time line.
