During initial CCI meetings with City officials, Perth Amboy identified a 6-acre former scrap yard, contaminated with PCBs, as a top priority project. The site is flanked by an elementary school, the Raritan River, and the NJ Transit Shore line, and sat fenced and blighted for nearly 20 years because of the complexity and expense of the cleanup. Due to the proximity of two sensitive receptors, CCI exhausted every avenue possible to assemble funds to complete the remediation and create a new municipal park. CCI amassed over $7 million in State funding to revitalize this site and transform this community. The project broke ground in Fall 2020.
