Contract Complete for Garwood's Athletic Field Complex (AFC)

Garwood's Big Gamble
Despite its pricey features the borough's Athletic Field Complex has continued its path (albeit a slow a windy one) toward realization. The contract for the site has been completed and should be signed next week, Borough Attorney Joseph Triarsi said at the Tuesday night’s borough council meeting, according to a report in the venerable Westfield Leader.

In August the council voted five to one to approve a bond ordinance that provided funding for the borough’s long-planned recreational complex.

For years, Garwood has been inching closer to realizing plans for the site. The massive overhaul will include dozens of new amenities. Supporters say the site will add value to the town, others says it's simply too expensive for borough taxpayers.

Another issue cited by some residents is that borough officials have not informed the public about the AFC project. Reacting to that criticism, some council members said the borough's defunct newsletter may be relaunched, according to a report in the Clark-Garwood Patch.
