The City of Newburgh Industrial Development Agency has released a request for proposals (RFP) to bring new life to a potentially contaminated piece of land at 5 Scobie Drive in Newburgh.

The 15-acre property is bordered by Route 84 in one direction and the Newburgh Public Works Department on the other. The IDA is seeking proposals that will rehab the long-neglected brownfield site while creating employment opportunities for local residents. The board will 'look favorably' on applications that have a plan to integrate into the community, a structure that will help educate and unskilled workforce and is dedicated to sustainable energy.

Anyone interested in submitting an RFP should send it to idadirector@cityofnewburghny.gov. You may wish to follow up and proposals with a phone call to confirm delivery (845) 569-7369. All responses must be received by July 11th at 4 PM.
