Funded by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)
Summer 2015– Bruno Associates requested funding from the NDJEP Green Acres Program and was awarded $185,000 in grants for Guttenberg Town’s multi-park improvements. The Green Acres Program administers funds to local governments and nonprofit land trusts to obtain open space and develop parks throughout the state. These projects that are approved by the Garden State Preservation Trust (GSPT) sets aside millions to provide funds for developing parks and recreational facilities, local land acquisition projects, preserving land and protecting the environment along with its wildlife. Guttenberg town seeks to use its awarded funds to improve and renovate both the Veteran’s Park and veteran’s Memorial Park. Renovations will consist of adding light to extend evening hours, restoring the restrooms, and adding new water features. The Veteran’s Memorial Park with all its upgrades will enhance the experience with its beautiful view of the New York City skyline and Hudson River.
