City seeking economic development consultant

The Baltimore Development Corp., the city's economic development agency, is looking for an outside consultant to provide an analysis of the city's "economic development landscape," according to a request for applications issued Tuesday.

The consultant is being asked to assess the city's "existing economic conditions, obstacles, opportunities for expansion, and strengths," as well as identify "priorities and options to move the City's economy forward" and figure out a way "to track the success of new initiatives in terms of job growth, investment, and economic impact," according to the request for proposals.

The consultant's ideas will be incorporated into an updated version of Baltimore's Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy, which is to be completed this year. Applicants must submit their proposals to the BDC by noon June 10.
