City of Corning RFP

City of Corning RFP

The City of Corning, NY is seeking professional design services to work with the City, a Public Art Committee, and community stakeholders in the development of a Master Plan for Civic Center Plaza.  Civic Center Plaza is located on the south side of the Chemung River between key municipal and community buildings, including Corning City Hall, the Southeast Steuben County Public Library, and the U.S Social Security Administration building. A walkway also connects the plaza to the end of Corning’s historic Market Street.  Civic Center Plaza features a covered outdoor ice rink which has recently been re-purposed during the non-winter months for pickleball.   The City of Corning completed and adopted a Parks Strategy in 2020 which envisioned developing a master plan for Civic Center Plaza that would create enlivened, accessible four-season gathering space for the community (See Corning Parks Strategy page 56 for Existing Conditions of Civic Center Plaza).  A specific recommendation was to incorporate public art and create a public art park.  The City has also adopted a Public Art Strategy which further promotes the idea of transforming Civic Center Plaza to include public art.  Proposals are due by 12:00 p.m. on June 25, 2024.
