I would like to inform the general public and all stakeholders of Summit’s downtown that MONDO Summit will be starting masonry work on the left side of the building at 426 Springfield Avenue. The work is set to begin in the week of October 17, 2011. The Summit Promenade Park will be closed to the public for safety and protection of all passersby. The combination of masonry work and glass will require scaffolding and detoured access to the service road and parking garage. We suggest the use of the Kaus Way on the south side of Springfield Avenue between Summit Frame and Art and Schroth & Lorenson’s Jewelers.
We appreciate your patience as we seek to enhance the look and function of the both the building and the park. We are happy to have had the use of the park all summer and through the Summit Street Fair. We are hoping for a spring “Renewal Celebration” open to all!
Updated drawings of the building as well as the park are in process and will be posted on the MONDO Summit window. For inquiries and/or comments, please contact Annette Dwyer at AMFDwyer@aol.com or 908-273-7441 or 917-969-4534.
The revitalization of the Summit Promenade Park is being done in partnership with the City of Summit, The Summit Area Development Corporation, other community stakeholders and volunteers. For those interested in making donations to the revitalization of the Summit Promenade Park, you can make a donation to The Summit Area Development Corporation, P.O. 299, Summit, NJ 07902.
Already a location of public enjoyment, the park will be enhanced by new stone hardscape, greater access to the service road; increased and various kinds of seating opportunities; new retaining walls for sitting by shade trees and flower beds; bicycle racks; a central focal point for public art; and an increased focal area for live entertainment.
