Last week, Township Planner Ed Snieckus guided the Parsippany planning
board through the details of the consistencies and inconsistencies the proposed
Waterview development had with the township’s Master Plan at Monday night
The board passed unanimously Snieckus’ report and presentation of the proposal’s inconsistencies. The matter now goes over to the town council, which meets on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Parsippany Hills High School for a second reading, presentation by the township planner on traffic issues and fiscal impact, a public hearing and then a final vote.
Board Attorney Michael Cresitello said the governing body has two options, they can amend the ordinance to address the inconsistencies or adopt it in spite of the inconsistencies.
Last month the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Council introduced a controversial rezoning ordinance on first reading. The ordinance, which rezones a tract of land in the Waterview complex was passed on first reading in a 3-1 vote.
Since last week’s planning board meeting did not have a public hearing, several letter to the editors were submitted and many look forward to their opportunity to speak up at Tuesday’s meeting.

Parsippany’s Women’s Theater Company kicks off its 21st season of Terrance McNally’s Tony-Award winning play Master Class directed by Barbara Krajkowski on Friday. It runs from Sept. 20 – Oct. 6.
“Master Class is based on the larger-than-life opera diva, Maria Callas, who later in her career, held master classes at Juilliard in the 1970’s. In the play, the glamorous, commanding and hysterical Callas teaches a master class and shares her experience in opera and stage with the attendees (the audience). Three different students Sophie, Tony and Sharon have the opportunity to sing and receive constructive criticism. As each student performs, they become ‘victims’ of Callas’s callousness. Callas comically and poignantly reminisces about her life on and off the stage, soliloquizing her innermost thoughts, regrets and personal inadequacies,” according to the Patch event listing.
All Women’s Theater Company performances are Fridays and
Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 and $20 for
seniors. To purchase tickets online go to www.womenstheater.org or call 973-316-3033, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
