Township Council Makes $4M Open Space Purchase

During the regular meeting of the Township Council on Monday, September 16, the Council made the the largest Open Space purchase in the township’s history.

The Council entered into a sale and access agreement with Grackle Hill Lane to purchase “the Straham property,” located at 321 East Cedar Street.

“This is a home run,” mayor Al Anthony said. “This is a nine-acre piece of property for a town that’s very desirable, that a lot of developers would like to develop. Instead the area will be able to be enjoyed for open space and recreational opportunities.”

Ordinance Passes to Acquire Property for DPW Building

A proposed ordinance to acquire property to be used for a new township public works building was passed at the Monday, September 16, Township Council meeting.

The ordinance would authorize the commencement of an action under eminent domain to acquire block 102, lot 12 in Livingston. The 8.392 acre parcel of land is currently owned by the Zheng Yaun International Flagship School, LLC. It is located on Industrial Parkway, and is currently an overgrown field.

The purpose of acquiring the property for public use, according to the ordinance, would be to build a new Department of Public Works facility. There have been discussions on whether to renovate or move the existing South Livingston Avenue facility for several years.

Calling All Furs: Second Annual Vintage Fur Sale Will Benefit Homeless and Poor

Article Image Alt Text
Article Image Alt Text

Last year, Jeff Friedman, founder of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), learned that many Livingston residents have  old, unused and unwanted furs hanging in their closets, attics, garages and basements.
“Now, LPI offers a solution to family members who want to use the furs to make a difference for those living below the poverty line or out on the streets,” he said.
 Livingston’s hometown charity is requesting old and unused furs for its second annual Vintage Fur Sale. “Last year’s event was hugely successful, and LPI is building on that success in 2019, our ninth season of providing for the poor, homeless and disenfranchised,” said Friedman. “Proceeds from the fur sale are used to to buy badly needed items for the homeless and profoundly poor folks.”

A multi-age Riker Hill School “Ramily” of 15 took a 15-mile bike ride in support of the 30th and final NYC Century Bike Tour on Sunday, September 8. The tours were organized by Transportation Alternatives, a bike advocacy group.

The Riker Hill group embraced the Riker Hill School mascot – the ram – and the “Ramily theme” as espoused by school principal Justin Toomey.

“The play on the words’ ‘ram family’ led to the kids’ chanting “We are ramily!’ said parent Rachana Sheth. “So we customized the helmets with ram horns and the Riker Hill slogan, #weareramily.”

Article Image Alt Text

The ninth giving season of Living-ston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) is off to an extremely strong start “thanks to our altruistic Livingston residents,” announced Jeff Friedman, founder and director of the organization.
LPI volunteers provided needed clothing items to the Bessie Green Community at North Reformed Church, and toiletry gift bags to  clients at  John’s Soup Kitchen, both  located in Newark.
The Bessie Green “Clothes Barn” operation received a large, three-vehicle delivery from volunteers Alan Levin, Rick Levin and Stephen Greenberg.
“Still using personal vehicles to make it happen, they are loaded up to the gills with an array of family clothing, shoes, coats, men’s dress attire and more,” said Friedman. “Mostly high-quality garments, as always.”
Levin, a founding LPI volunteer, reported that  “We filled up my SUV, Alan’s station wagon and Stephen’s car. We picked up a bigger than expected load of donations at the Tribune, too.”
