Recently the Greater Newburgh Partnership, the Newburgh Community Land Bank and the City Council spearheaded a project to clean up the Mid-Broadway lot that has been the center of much talk over the past few years. Once populated by many buildings, the lot was almost entirely demolished to make way for the SUNY Orange campus that eventually was constructed in another location. Now, there have been talks to make this lot into a supermarket with office spaces above, and recent plans have included possibly making this site the headquarters for the Newburgh Police and Fire Departments. Following the clean-up the area was capped with topsoil, and hydroseeded. The next step planned for this lot will be to bring in more street lamps and security cameras. This is definitely a spot to keep your eye on. Whatever is decided for this land could have a huge impact on the city.
