NORTH WILDWOOD – The City of North Wildwood is hoping to create a gateway to the city using property acquired for that purpose.
North Wildwood City Council awarded a contract for the project March 7 to Bernstein Design Group, of Cape May, for services at the rate of $95 per hour, not to exceed $17,500, which is the amount at which a contract must go out to bid.
Mayor Patrick Rosenello said there has been a vision for a gateway entrance to the city for a long time. The location being considered is not at the immediate entrance to the city, but is located where the current veterans memorial currently stands. He said the project is a cooperative effort between the city and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
Rosenello said the city acquired the former gas station site that operated for years as George’s Sunoco and the former Triangle Restaurant that was more recently Nino’s.
Rosenello said the tentative design includes the first Gold Star Family Memorial in New Jersey.
“It’s part of a complete rehab of the veterans memorial,” Rosenello said. “It has taken a long time to fully piece this together.”
Rosenello said there is another former gas station site in the area the city has not acquired, the site of the former Esso/Exxon station.
He said the city has applied for partial funding of the project through the Cape May County Open Spaces program. He said the city is also working very closely with the VFW, which he said is paying for the monuments.
