Hoboken goes out to bid for Northwest Park construction

The City of Hoboken has received authorization from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to advertise for bids for construction of Hoboken’s Northwest Park, which will be the City’s largest park at 5 acres.  

The park will include above and below ground infrastructure to reduce flooding, a turf field, open lawn areas, play areas and structures, ice skating rink, community building, fountain, and more.  Bids are due from qualified bidders to the Division of Purchasing in the City of Hoboken by May 14, 2019.  Construction on the park is scheduled to begin later this year.  

Construction of upgrades and improvements to the Northwest Resiliency Park were financed by the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Financing Program (NJEIFP).  The NJEIFP is a State Revolving Fund program jointly administered by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust (Trust) and uses a combination of funds provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the DEP, and the Trust to provide very low interest loans to borrowers for environmental infrastructure projects.
