“Our programs are expanding rapidly,” Spencer said.
"We had one education building and last week we opened our second.
We had one parking deck and today we are starting to build our second. The parking facility is definitely needed."
“With Turtle Back Zoo as our anchor and new attractions
like the paddle boating and 1.7-mile walking path at the Orange Reservoir,
our Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex has become
a regional destination for people seeking leisure,
recreation and educational activities,” DiVincenzo said.
“It’s a great feeling to see all the people who come here.
I am truly amazed at what has happened here because of the vision of Joe DiVincenzo,” Sheriff Armando Fontoura said.
“For the next several months while construction is occurring it will be a challenge, but our officers are up to the challenge. It’s worth it."
"Building this parking structure is a massive undertaking
that will create disruptions and worsen a parking situation that is already bad. We ask for the public’s understanding and patience
while we work to improve our parking accommodations,”
the county executive said.
