The City of Riverside Community and Economic Development Department, in conjunction with the City of Colton, has initiated an effort to prepare a Northside Neighborhood & Pellissier Ranch Inter-Jurisdictional Specific Plan. To facilitate the development of the Specific Plan, the City selected a consultant team lead by Rick Engineering to assist with meeting facilitation, land use, community-based urban design, real-estate economics, historic preservation, transportation, and infrastructure systems.

Please visit to stay up to date with the specific plan process, review documents, and sign up to get notified of updates and upcoming workshops.

The information below details the consultant selection process prior to the project kick-off. You will also find a number of related background resources and documents on this page.

Consultant Evaluation Results

The City’s Planning Division has compiled the ranking of the three finalist consulting firms, as scored by the Staff Evaluation Committee and community members during the May 26 interviews. While the RFQ/RFP identifies that the ranking and scores were to be posted on the City’s web page by June 1, 2016, the City’s Finance Department has identified policy that restricts the posting of this information prior to the release of a written report summarizing the findings and justification for the rankings. As such, the ranking and scores of the three finalist firms shall be included in the staff report prepared for the Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) Board meeting, currently scheduled for June 27th. The meeting agenda and staff report will be available online twelve days prior to the meeting date at:

Any questions regarding the release of scores may be directed to Jay Eastman, Principal Planner, at
