The Mind and Body Complex is a construction project that will include a new school, 21-century digital library and a community center with a swimming pool, gymnasium, recording studio computer labs and more.

The Freeholders in 2016 approved the issuance of bonds from the Union County Improvement Authority not to exceed $59 million for the project. The new build will be constructed between Harrison and Chandler Avenues.

The resolution that is up for a vote on Aug. 10 will not change the intent, timeline or cost of the project, Union County Clerk of the Board James Pellettiere said. 

“This is just adopting language for the board to adopt consent for the project to move forward,” Pellettiere said Tuesday.

The slated resolution will not amend the 2016 ordinance either, Pellettiere added. Although it's "customary" to have included the slated resolution language into the original ordinance, it can be adopted separately by the county, he said.

"This resolution provides the standard language required by state statute that authorizes [the] county's consent to move forward with the lease revenue bonds, and the construction of the facilities and execution of the leases in connection to the project," Pellettiere said.
