Hamtramck seeks proposals for Hamtramck Stadium
The city of Hamtramck is calling for proposals for predevelopment planning and design services for the historic Hamtramck Stadium in Veterans Park. The stadium is one of a dozen remaining Negro Leagues baseball stadiums in the country.
Hamtramck wants to repurpose the stadium to a public multipurpose facility, a news release said. The space would be used for a range of sporting and recreation activities including youth leagues, pick-up games, concerts, movie screenings and other events.
The city is seeking a Historic Structures Report of the site, a cost estimate for the work spelled out in the report and architectural drawings for the stadium’s rehab, the news release said.
The project is being funded through an African American Civil Rights Grant, under the Historic Preservation Fund, which is administered by the National Park Service.
Proposals are due by 11 a.m. Aug. 18. For more details, visit here.
