Issued Date: November 26, 2018
Due Date: January 4, 2019


The Town of Urbana received funding, provided by the New York State Department of State (DOS) under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund, to design and construct improvements on municipal land along Keuka Lake. The project will increase public access and create a continuous connection between Hammondsport central business district, Depot Park, Curtiss Park and Champlin Beach. The improvements will include a pedestrian bridge over the Keuka Inlet, a boardwalk and a bird watching observation tower to access the adjacent wetland areas, trailheads and kiosks, an ADA-compliant kayak launch, and a trail through Curtiss Park connecting to Champlin Beach.

This Request for Proposals (“RFP”) is for the Town to procure a consultant or a consultant team to provide architectural and engineering services for the preparation of the design and construction documents for public access improvements along Keuka Lake, as detailed below. The consultant team must be of architects, engineers, and/or landscape architects licensed in New York State.

The Town of Urbana is required to comply with the provisions of Article 15-A of the Executive Law. Pursuant to this law, the New York State Department of State established an overall goal of 30% for Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (“MWBE”).


The procured consultant team will conduct site reconnaissance and cultural resources study, prepare alternative schematic designs and final design, conduct construction requirement analysis and discuss construction permitting requirements with State and federal agencies, prepare construction documents, identify elements of the project that could be constructed by the Town staff and volunteers and prepare bid invitation to select a construction subcontractor, monitor the construction and report to the Town and DOS, prepare certified as-built plans and a completion statement at the end of the construction phase.
