Little Egg Harbor — In time for Memorial Day, Little Egg Harbor Township installed a sign that tells more about the Veterans Park planned for the corner of Radio Road and Grace Place.

The site was purchased using open space funds, and the township had to apply to the state Department of Environmental Protection to change the dedication from open space to recreation, also allowed by Green Acres funding. A public hearing and comments were obtained in March to allow the change.

Plans show a circular sidewalk configuration leading to a gazebo, a monument area for all military services, additional sidewalk, lighting, flagpole and landscaping. The township is accepting bids for this second phase of the park until June 11.

In September 2018 the township appropriated $480,000 from the Open Space Trust Fund to do site preparation and recreational improvements.  —P.J.
