The City will prepare materials to select and execute a contract with a consultant to create and manage both Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) & Request for Proposal (RFP) processes for Dock Street site development including, but not limited to, identifying opportunities and strategies for site development, options for mitigating the Wastewater treatment facility, and demolishing the Municipal Lighting Department storage yards as part of site preparation.
This project seeks to connect residents and visitors at the waterfront with the city's historic core and it aligns with economic and community objectives in the DRI Strategic Investment Plan.
Restore NY Grant:
In preparation of future development at Dock Street Waterfront, the City of Plattsburgh applied for the Restore NY Round 5 program on December 15, 2017. The Restore New York Communities Initiatives Grant provides a financial incentive for municipalities to pursue projects that include demolition, deconstruction, rehabilitation or reconstruction of vacant, abandoned, condemned and surplus properties. Grants can be used for site development needs including water, sewer and parking.
Development at the Dock Street Waterfront is contingent upon the movement of the Municipal Lighting Department storage yard identified as the "Development Site" in the graphic above.
