Workers began renovations to Nutley’s Municipal Plaza — in front of the Town Hall. The renovations will replace diseased plum trees and upgrade monuments that have fallen into disrepair. The plaza improvement will also include installation of new walkways, accent shrubbery, plantings and a sitting wall. Additionally, the town square portion will accommodate the township’s annual Christmas tree.

A new mall-like area will be established in Memorial Park that will include the Korean War plaque, Pervis Robinson plaque, Ray Blum plaque and new soon-to-be-dedicated Global War On Terrorism and Spanish-American War monuments.

Placement and fundraising for the new monuments will be implemented in conjunction with various Nutley Veterans organizations.

“This renovation has been in the works for a few years,” Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci, whose Parks and Public Property Department this project falls under, said. “The concept and design was accomplished in consultation with the entire board of commissioners. What we have come up with is nothing less than stunning. Once completed, Nutley’s Municipal Plaza and Memorial Park will be the envy of every town in the state.”
