Webster County Comprehensive Plan & Zoning Ordinance Amendments RFP

Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance Updates – Transportation Corridor Planning

Webster County, Iowa is seeking qualified consulting firms to submit a proposal to prepare amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The Webster County Comprehensive Plan was thoroughly updated in 2009 and serves as a source of information for the County as it provides policy guidelines to enable citizens and elected officials to make informed decisions about the framework for guiding development toward orderly growth. Planned growth will make Webster County more effective in serving its residents, more efficient in using its resources, and strive to meet the standard of living and quality of life every individual desires. In the past decade since, many changes have occurred adjacent to major transportation corridors, including the addition of a number of new businesses and expansions throughout the County.

 The project would include analyzing the existing land uses and zoning in the unincorporated areas of the County adjacent to certain transportation corridors - U.S. Highway 20, U.S. Highway 169, Highway No. 7, and County Road P59 by utilizing updated 2020 census data, traffic counts, studying existing and future public facilities and utilities, etc. This update would identify appropriate future land use and potential zoning designations with regulations and/or zoning overlay districts with regulations along these corridors to promote sound comprehensive corridor planning and economic development.

The City of Fort Dodge Comprehensive Plan shall be considered in the update. Working together is important to align the County and City to make sound land use, infrastructure and future development decisions.
