The Town of Los Gatos has a population of approximately 31,000 residents and approximately 13,600 housing units.

The units are managed in accordance with Town Council adopted guidelines, which are available for view on the Town’s website.

Since the adoption of this ordinance, the Town has secured 174 BMP units, 55 owner occupied and 119 rental. In accordance with all applicable Federal, State, and local laws, the consulting BMP Program services will include, but are not limited to the following: administrative services, housing unit sales services, and rental housing services. Emphasis will be placed on the directly relevant qualifications and capacity of the Consultant.One copy of the proposal should be submitted to the Community Development Department via e-mail at Planning@losgatosca.gov, and must be received by Friday, August 21, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. The Request for Proposals letter can be found on the Town website.
