Graduate students from the Bloustein School of Planning and Policy at Rutgers University have proposed a significant upgrade to the Eugene Young Environmental Education Center (EEC) building, river access, and further remediation of the Native Plant Reserve.
On May 3, they gave a presentation on their project to Borough Council. The presentation is available here HPPresentation.
The above figures show the concept design for the enlarged EEC, which would accomodate up to 55 people compared to the current 19 people.
The complete report can be found here Highland Park WaterFront Restoration.
The Highland Park Environmental Commission thanks the graduate students and the Rutgers Bloustein School for Planning and Policy for their comprehensive conceptual plan for the building, remediation, river access, permitting with regulatory agencies, and public outreach.
