We invite developers to submit their qualifications and preliminary proposals to purchase all or portions of the former SMUD Corporation Yard on 59th Street in Sacramento.  We’re looking for proposals that are consistent with our objectives, goals and overall vision for the property.

Features, characteristics and amenities should represent our energy and climate goals. Examples include:

  • All-electric service
  • Electric vehicle charging infrastructure
  • Energy efficiency
  • Water efficiency
  • Energy management technology
  • Pedestrian and bicycle connectivity
  • Establishment of a new urban forest

Responses to this RFQ must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM on November 26, 2019.

The RFQ will be followed by the Request for Proposal (RFP) to a limited number of finalists who responded to the RFQ. To be eligible for the RFQ and consequent RFP, developers must be registered in SMUD's Electronic Bid Solicitation System (EBSS).
