Mayor Parisi presents West Orange *New* town center


Missed the Walk 'n Talk? No Problem!

Join residents at 8pm on Thursday, January 31 at Town Hall as the owner of Essex Green Shopping Center continues their presentation to the WO Zoning Board about their plans for ReDeveloping Essex Green. What will be there? How will the traffic flow? What trees will remain and which ones will be killed? Will Clarion Partners adhere to their own sustainability practices? Where will the Mayor's new WO library be moved to in relation to the Essex Green? Will the Zoning Board ask hard questions, and require Clarion to provide the very best shopping, dining, and recreation experiences West Orange residents deserve?  Invite your neighbors! Spread the word! Bring your questions, too!
