The city is seeking proposals from consultants for a comprehensive planning study to examine two to three development scenarios for Brighton.

The city’s redevelopment authority is particularly interested in ideas on how to best use existing parking lots and former industrial buildings, according to a release.

The impact of each scenario will be studied, and each will include recommendations for appropriate mix of uses, public realm improvements, traffic, and economic development, the release said.

The authority is seeking “a consultant or consultant team that have demonstrated excellence in integrating the disciplines of planning and urban design, market analysis, and transportation systems to prepare and develop a Brighton Planning Study,” said the Boston Redevelopment Authority announcement.

“The Study must examine and determine the impacts of different uses including retail, housing, and light industrial, as well as office and expansion of existing business headquarters,” continued the release.

Copies of the proposal request were made available to buy for a $150 non-refundable fee from the authority’s Executive Director/Secretary Office on the 9th floor of City Hall on Monday. A copy of the RFP must be bought in order to submit a proposal, and BRA staff will be available to assist, the announcement said.

All responses to are due by Jan. 3 at 12 p.m. to Brian P. Golden, Secretary, BRA, Boston City Hall, One City Hall Square, 9th Floor, Boston, MA 02201-1007. The BRA reserves the right to reject any or all proposals, said the release
