National Park Service Looking for Patersonians' Ideas



PATERSON, NJ – What do you do think the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park should feature? Nature trails? A sky ride across the falls? Art exhibits? Nature trails? Tours by someone dressed up as Alexander Hamilton? History lessons on Paterson’s role in America’s industrial revolution and the organized labor movement?

Well, the National Park Service says it want to know what Patersonians expect from the new national park and will three open house meetings next week to get input.

They will be:

·       Thurs., Nov. 17 from 6-830 pm at Center City Mall, 301 Main Street, third floor.

·       Fri., Nov. 18 from 1-3 pm at The Brownstone, 351 West Broadway.

·       Sat., Nov. 19 from 11 am to 3 pm at New Jersey Community Development Corporation’s offices at 32 Spruce Street.

These meetings will be the park service’s first step towards making its general management plan – or blueprint - for the Great Falls park. It’s a process officials say will take more two years.

In conjunction with that planning process, federal officials will begin seeking funding for the park.

Anyone who can’t make the meetings can submit comments online.
