NJDEP selects three consultant firms to assist the State with planning and design activities in urban parks

On April 4, 2023, NJDEP retained three consultant firms to assist the State with planning and design activities, including assessment services, development of planning and design documents, community and stakeholder engagement, and to facilitate the creation of master plans for its urban parks initiatives.

The selected firms will have the opportunity to assist NJDEP with the commencement of robust community-focused stakeholder engagement, and develop recommendations for phased development, stormwater management, and remediation of historic industrial contamination through a series of Mini-Bids.
