The Town of Cumberland seeks a qualified firm to prepare a Master Plan for Valley Falls Heritage Park. The Master Plan will include extensive and productive public outreach, field survey, and development of a Concept Plan (approximately 10% design). The overarching goal of the Master Plan is to re-envision the park as a Wellness Hub that functions in harmony with the proposed community center across the street (Amaral Building/16 Mill Street).
The Master Plan has three design and programming objectives:
- Promote health, education and work
- Physically and symbiotically improve the connection between the park and the Amaral Building
- Create an amphitheater near Mill Street for public education and community engagement
The Town has approximately $1 million in grant funds allocated to design and construction, inclusive of this Master Plan development. Depending on the estimated project costs, the consultant should recommend a phased approach and identify sources of funding to complete the project.
