Gateway Cities Housing Assessment: Request for Proposals
Friday, October 19, 2018
The Gateway Cities region consists of 27 cities and additional unincorporated communities in Southeast Los Angeles County, with a total population of 2.1 million. The region is predominantly urban, and is suited for infill development or redevelopment. The region is served by a transportation network that includes major freeways and arterial roads, light rail lines, and local transit bus systems, with additional light rail service planned. The region is also home to the Port of Long Beach and neighbor to the Port of Los Angeles. Together, they form the nation’s largest marine port complex, and freight moves through the Gateway Cities by truck and rail. The Los Angeles and San Gabriel rivers traverse the region from north to south.
The Gateway Cities have collaborated via a Joint Powers Authority called the Gateway Cities Council of Governments (COG) since the mid-1990’s, on transportation, air quality, housing, and economic development issues. On behalf of its members, the Gateway Cities COG seeks a consultant team to provide information and data that will assist the COG in developing a collaborative housing strategy or policy for the COG region.
