A streetcar navigates the streets of Seattle in early 2008.

L.A. Streetcar Inc. is seeking a few consultants as it continues work on a streetcar line that would connect South Park, Broadway and Bunker Hill. The project yesterday released a pair of Request for Qualification (RFQ) documents, one looking for marketing and outreach help and the other seeking more technical research on assessment districts.

Firms interested in either of the jobs are encouraged to check out the complete RFQ documents online and submit their response before October 23.

For the P.R. / Media RFQ:

LASI is soliciting qualifications from individual firms or teams capable of developing an integrated and branded suite of advertising and outreach materials to communicate with Downtown Los Angeles stakeholders, property owners, transit riders, residents, community groups, and other stakeholders regarding the benefits of a streetcar system.

And for the Special Benefit District RFQ:

LASI is soliciting qualifications from consultants capable of developing revised Los Angeles Streetcar conceptual Special Benefit District alternatives that will generate revenues to help pay for the capital and operating costs of the streetcar system.

The project hopes to have its first line up and running by 2014.
