Applications are Heard At Planning Board Meeting

The Livingston Planning Board met on Tuesday, January 21, to discuss two hearings for property on Scott Terrace.

The first hearing was a minor subdivision with variances, at the corner of East McClellan Avenue and Scott Terrace for applicant JMZ Enterprises. The applicant sought to subdivide lot 21 to create four new lots that measure approximately 14,484 square feet, 10,691 square feet, 11,171 square feet and 18,616 square feet, respectively. They also want to increase the footprint size and storage volume of the new surface detention basin to incorporate the original Scott Terrace subdivision, which will eliminate the previously approved underground detention basin from beneath the roadway.

Livingston Holds Annual M.L. King Day of Service

It was a “Day On” this past Monday, January 20, at the Livingston Senior/ Community Center, where the annual Day of Service was held on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Several hundred people attended the three-hour event, which encouraged residents to make the most of their time off for the holiday, “A Day On, Not a Day Off.”

“This gets larger every year,” mayor Rudy Fernandez said. “Thank you to the volunteers for making a difference in our neighbors’ lives.”

“That’s what we need, we need more volunteerism,” councilman Michael Vieira said. “Just as we celebrate Martin Luther King Day, let’s celebrate volunteerism in Livingston.”

In his weekly update on Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), founder and director Jeff Friedman noted, “Collins Elementary School fourth and fifth-graders proved that the ‘giving season’ wasn’t over at the end of 2019’s holiday season.”
Under the auspices of the Student Council and PTO parent volunteer Sherri Lynn Marrache, LPI was presented with more than 100 warm coats and bags of winter accessories by the Collins students who collected them. “Just in time for the frigid temperatures,” said Jeff Friedman.
Along with coats dropped at the offices of the West Essex Tribune, LPI volunteers delivered a total of 162 garments, along with hats, gloves and scarves, to long-time distribution associate Willing Heart Community Care Center in Newark. Willing Heart immediately distributed the needed warmth at no cost to the homeless and profoundly poor through its Clothing Boutique.

No Place for Hate

While we briefly mentioned this in last week’s editorial, we wish to take another moment to commend all those who participated in the somewhat impromptu march down South Livingston Avenue earlier this month.

The march, which was designed to show solidarity following recent hateful and anti-Semitic incidents, was held at the same time as a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge which attracted tens of thousands of people. Livingston’s march was in conjunction with that one, organized because residents Brandon and Claudia Minde wished to participate, but did not want to take their young children to the crowded New York City event. So they decided the day before the march to plan a small walk in their own hometown, Livingston.
