Controversial Housing Development to be Heard Again

Here's a look at what's happening in Parsippany this week.

Our new year weight loss adventure is going well. If you're finding the need to try something new to get fit, here's an idea: The Atlantis Sports Club & Spa, inside the Sheraton Parsippany at 199 Smith Road, is offering one free Zumba With Diana class to give people a chance to see if the Latin-influenced dance workout is their cup of salsa. The free class with Diana runs Monday from 7:30-8:30 p.m. To register for the free class, go to the club's website.

Lance Armstrong and juiced-up baseballers aside, there are still revered sports heroes worthy of honor. And you can find collectible cards and memorabilia paying homage to them on display Tuesday from 4-8 p.m. at a weekly Sport Card Show at the Parsippany Police Athletic League, 33 Baldwin Road. A huge assortment of items will be available for sale. Admission is $1. For more info, call Jose De Barros 732-306-9401.

High schoolers preparing for college are getting into the busy season. A free SAT Practice Test is offered Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Centenary College, 300 Littleton Road, for those preparing for the upcoming spring testing dates. At the same time, an SAT Prep Course—not free; it costs $599—will take place at Parsippany High School, 309 Baldwin Road.

Neighbors-Helping-Neighbors, a free peer-led volunteer support group for people actively looking for work meets Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. at the  at 68 Nokomis Ave. in Hiawatha.

PSGMC peer support group for job seekers meets Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Free Public Library at 449 Halsey Road to hear guest speakers well-versed in all facets of career search and development.

The contentious proposal of the once-rejected 700 Mountain Way is back: The Parsippany Zoning Board of Adjustment meets to take up a revised plan to bring a townhouse community to the southwest portion of the town. Neighbors put up a strong defense against the project during more than three years of initial deliberation, so it's possible there may be fireworks. The meeting takes place Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall, 1001 Parsippany Blvd.

Shake up your fitness routine with Masala Bhangra Fitness. The weekly classes teach an exercise dance routine that mixes the high-energy folk dance of Bhangra (Indian dance) with Bollywood moves. Classes are $40 for five weeks and take place Saturdays from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at 246 Route 46. For more information, call 201-230-5536.

Try your luck at St. Peter the Apostle Church's Weekly Summer Bingo. It's easy to play, you can win prizes and it's free! The event is held Sundays through the summer from 6-10 p.m. at 179 Baldwin Road.

Neil Sedaka was right, breaking up is hard to do. If your marriage is coming to a close, there is comfort in numbers. In Parsippany, you have two options to find support: The Crossroads Divorce Support Group, a free gathering for divorced men and women of any faith that offers special events, community and healing, is presented at St. Peter the Apostle Church Sunday at 7 p.m. at 179 Baldwin Road. The other group, also offered Sunday at 7 p.m., is called Puzzle Pieces - A Divorced/Separated Support Group. This one is nonreligious and has a fee—just a dollar—and takes place at the Parsippany Police Athletic League Center at 33 Baldwin Road.

Regarding the 700 Mountain Way proposal, I have heard that townhouses and condos go against the town's Master Plan. This is one of the many issues with the Waterview proosal, they want to build 72 townhomes, selling in the range of 450 to 500K, that overlook the rooftop of the stripmall containing Wholefoods, some other "to be determined (Target?)" and possibly a drive through retsuarant or gas station/convenience store. If townhomes and condos are restricted in the Master Plan, then why do develoeprs continue to request to the town to approve plans to buidl them? Also, aren't there enough apartments turned condo and single family homes for sale in Parsippany already?
