The Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders got their first look at a potential new $120 million Hudson County Schools of Technology facility in Secaucus that could see construction completed as soon as September 2019.
The school would be built on a vacant lot right across from the Frank R. Lautenberg train station located at 1000 New County Road.
Hudson County Schools of Technology Superintendent Frank Gargiulo, who is also the North Bergen Commissioner of the department of public works, explained to the board the vision for the school.
Gargiulo also noted that the new school would plan to accommodate 1,000 students during the day and an additional 1,000 students at night.
Jeffrey Schlecht, a senior project manager for RSC architects, of Hackensack, walked the board through schematic drawings of the institution in a brief presentation.
Schlecht added that the facility would have 450 parking spots for students and faculty: 250 in a parking deck underneath the school and 200 in a parking lot in front of the school.
Finally, Schlecht clarified how a plausible bidding and building process could move forward from here.
The public hearing on the ordinance will be on Thursday, December 11 at 6:00 p.m. at the county building, located at 567 Pavonia Ave. in Jersey City.
The meeting will take place at the freeholder chamber on the third floor.
