The City of Newburgh is seeking sealed bids from qualified applicants for the reconstruction of Tyrone Crabb Park including playground installation. Tyrone Crabb Park, at South and Liberty Streets, will incorporate active and passive space including an outdoor stage, landscaping, walkways, lighting and benches. Bids must be returned to the City Comptroller’s office, 4th floor, City Hall, 83 Broadway by April 21, 2014, at 2 p.m. The City of Newburgh anticipates construction will commence in May/ June 2014.
Community members have lobbied for a park on the vacant lot across from Calvary Presbyterian Church and Old Town Cemetery since the late 1990’s. The original design concept for Tyrone Crabb Memorial Park was created by local architect Drew Kartiganer. Eberlin & Eberlin Associates, Landscape Architects and Consulting Engineers have been hired to complete the final design.
A City Councilman from 1985-1989, Tyrone Crabb was elected Mayor in November of 1999, and died Dec. 22, 1999 soon after taking the oath of office but before his official term could begin. Following his death, the City Council appointed his widow, Mary Crabb, to serve as Mayor.
Official bid documents can be obtained from the City Engineer’s office, first floor, City Hall, 83 Broadway, for $25 a copy (non-refundable), or through the Hudson Valley Municipal Purchasing Group (HVMPG) Regional Bid Notification System at http://www.empirestatebidsystem.com at no charge. Copies of the bidding documents obtained from any other source are not considered official copies. Only those vendors who obtain bidding documents from the Engineer’s Office, or the Regional Bid Notification System will be sent addendum information, if such information is issued.
