YMCA May Move to Nearby Grace Lutheran Church Property

The West Essex YMCA, currently located at 321 South Livingston Avenue, may move to a nearby location — right across the street — where it could build a new, larger facility. Currently, the property is the site of Grace Lutheran Church, which is expected to move if a deal is completed.

The general concept for the proposed new YMCA, as well as the location of the church property at 304 South Livingston Avenue, was expected to be presented to the neighboring properties during an informal community Zoom meeting this week after the press deadline. The YMCA was also discussed by the Township Council and township attorneys in closed session at Monday’s regular meeting.

Township Council Honors County Clerk During First Regular Meeting of the Year

The Township Council held its first regular meeting of 2021 on Monday, January 11, during which the Essex County clerk was issued a proclamation and the first resolutions of the New Year were passed. The meeting was livestreamed and may be viewed on the Livingston Township, NJ Facebook page.

At the start of the Council meeting, Mayor Shawn Klein made a statement condemning the “hateful and seditious act at the Capitol,” and held a moment of silence for the officer, a New Jersey native, “who died protecting the Capitol from insurrection.” An additional statement was later issued by the entire Council and may be seen elsewhere in this edition of the Tribune.

District Discusses Return to Hybrid Learning At Livingston Board of Education Meeting

As the district completes two weeks of all-remote learning following the winter break, the Livingston Board ofEducation meeting on January 11 focused on the resumption of hybrid school, with students learning some days from home and some days in the classroom, in the face of a significant drop of in-person students since Thanksgiving. The meeting was held on Zoom and is posted on the school district’s Facebook page.

The meeting was held specifically to elicit feedback prior to a final draft of the district plan, Board president Sam Messer said. “I’m thrilled to see the level of engagement that we have tonight,” she said. “The purpose of the meeting is so we can engage in some creative, collaborative problem solving.”

Changing Dates

At last week’s organizational meeting of Livingston’s Board of Education, it was announced that, starting with the new academic year in September, meetings would move from the typical Monday evening slot to Thursdays. The reason for the move was to finally avoid the longstanding overlap with the Township Council meetings.

Previously (and still for the first half of this year), residents have had to choose which meeting they wished to attend between the Council and the school board, as they often were held simultaneously. For years, neither side would budge off their Monday meeting dates. The change was long overdue and we applaud the Board of Education for taking this action, which provides tangible benefit for the community.
