Read the full story at Smart Cities Dive.

The City of Boston is seeking a partner to help design its first urban forest plan, according to a request for proposals (RFP) issued last week.

City officials said they want to partner with a group that will “develop strategies to promote growth, longevity, and protection of Boston’s urban canopy over the next 20 years,” and also provide a roadmap toward expanding the city’s tree canopy and understanding where that canopy is being lost.

Potential partners will be required to support communities and neighborhoods that have been historically underserved and are disproportionately affected by climate change. Partners will also be required to work with local small and minority-owned businesses. The RFP closes to applications on Oct. 28.
