Bid awarded for design of parking garage at former little league field

The Township committee passed a Resolution  awarding the Bid for the design of a parking facility to the Harman Group Located near Philadelphia. The former field on 9th and Clifton will have a parking lot and parking garage built on site. Part of the expense will come from  taxpayers, although the Twp received a grant from the NJDOT that will go toward the construction of the facility. The group was awarded $262, 200 for their contract in designing the project.

  1. Why are the tax payers paying for a parking facility being built for a private institution?

    2. Municipal lot? Has a study been done to see if people will actually park 6 blocks away from downtown and then take a shuttle, to go to a bagel store? Come on!

  2. Agree with this comment, roads are a mess. School busing is a mess, don't plow by every storm to save money, and yet they have millions for a parking lot for a private institution.

  3. Many if not most of the parking spots downtown are full the whole day by workers in the businesses and offices downtown. If this garage gets built, they can make downtown mostly short term and the downtown workers will park in the garage with a shuttle.
