In May 2014, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority (MCIA), working with the City of Perth Amboy, under funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Brownfields Program, contracted with a team of community planning specialists and landscape architects from Rutgers University to develop a concept design to convert a contaminated site into a community park that meets the needs and interests of the surrounding neighborhood residents. The Rutgers team was charged with conducting community outreach efforts and through those findings, develop a concept plan for the City’s new 2nd Street Park.
