BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- The township will host a virtual presentation on the Essex-Hudson Greenway project on April 14 at 7pm. 


Mayor Venezia and members of the Town Council will be joined by Essex County Commissioner Brendan Gill for the presentation. NJBWC and OSI will update the community on the status of the rail line acquisition, share initial details about the project and share ways the community can support the project in Bloomfield.


“The Essex County Greenway is an exciting project that would improve recreational opportunities for all people living in or around the area where the park would be located,” said Mayor Venezia. “I look forward to hearing an update from NJBWC and OSI on the status of this project and I hope that members of the community will join us.”


“The potential that this project possesses for so many communities from Essex to Hudson County is tremendous and I would love to see it come to fruition,” said Councilman Joanow. “By working with our various partners and continuing to push for this park, it could one day be a reality.”


The Essex-Hudson Greenway project is a proposed nine mile park that will span from Essex County to Hudson County. OSI, in partnership with the NJWBC and the September 11th National Memorial Alliance, signed a preliminary purchase and sale agreement in 2020.EHG_SMGraphic_Bloomfield_April14 (1)
