The Town of Princeville located in Edgecombe County, North Carolina has 53 acres of green field land at exit 488 off of US 64. The Board of Commissioners adopted a master plan for the site, created by S&ME Engineering, and now seeks to begin phase one infrastructure construction on the site. Specifically, the Town must construct critical infrastructure to locate a fire station, public works facility, and residential development.
The current project will physically link the Southern Terrace neighborhood to Main St (US64A) by a two-lane collector road. A phase one environmental, preliminary geotechnical analysis, and preliminary civil engineering for the 53 acre site identified required off site improvements. Respondents shall note and affirm in their SOQs that construction funding for the 53 acre phase one project is allocated as a portion of a $3.4 million federal Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery Funding (CDBG-DR) for Hurricane Matthew recovery through the North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency (NCORR).
Funding for infrastructure improvement may also be supported by non-federal sources, including but not limited to, state appropriated grants for disaster recovery. Therefore, procurement and construction are subject to NCORR and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations including federal labor standards, EEO, Davis-Bacon, Section 3 requirements, and DBE/HUB participation.
Completion of the 53 acre phase one project is in anticipation of constructing a new Princeville fire station, new Town of Princeville public works facility/emergency ops center, and likely a modicum of medium-higher density affordable housing.
