The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services is hosting a public hearing on contract awards on Thursday, November 7 at 9:30 a.m. at the mezzanine of One Centre Street.
The last item on the agenda is the Department of Homeless Services contract to develop and operate a “stand-alone transitional residence for homeless single adults” at 78-16 Cooper Avenue.
The term of the contract is from January 1, 2020 to June 30, 2025, with an option to renew from July 1, 2025 to June 30, 2028.
The vendor, of course, is the Westchester-based Westhab. According to the agenda, the contract is worth $61,808,956 – nearly $62 million.
The public hearing presents a chance for the public to provide testimony. We expect several people to speak about the project at the hearing, including members of the community board and the Glendale-Middle Village Coalition.
