Cornog Field House Construction Update


The long awaited Cornog Field House Project is about to get underway. Here are the facts that you may need for the press release, website and Facebook posts on the project.

The Iconic Cornog Field House located within Soldier’s Memorial Field at 5 Myrtle is under construction once again. Last year, restoration work was completed on the chimney and this year’s construction will see a renovation of the roof, as well as replacement of the upper windows, soffits and gutters.

The project was funded through the City’s Capital Improvement Fund in the amount of $296,000. Design was done by Potter Architects of Union, NJ and work is being completed by Spartan Construction of South Amboy, NJ. The building was named for Elwood Cornog, a beloved resident, coach and veteran, who was active in the Summit community. This location will also be the temporary home of The Department of Community Programs during the upcoming construction of the Community Center from September 2017 – September 2018.

Construction fencing has been erected on site as of this morning, June 15. The public restrooms will not be available during construction, but ADA equipped portable restrooms will be available. The Memorial Field Playground will remain open during construction. We ask the residents to please respect all caution signs and construction barriers. This phase of the work is expected to be completed by early September. Future improvements will be made to the building following this phase and will include additional window and door replacement.
