Thursday, January 10
Jan. 22th is fast approaching. Hopefully Parsippany voters will come out that day to vote on the Board of Education Athletic Field Improvement Referendum. I have given great consideration to this referendum. From my involvement with the open space ordinance and the Fields of Dreams proposal I have studied and reviewed the positives and negatives on the improvements to the athletic fields at Parsippany High School and Parsippany Hills High School. I felt the mayor's plan to use township Open Space Trust Fund money to pay for school athletic improvements was wrong. The Open Space Trust Fund was originally designed to protect and preserve the few remaining open tracts of land from development and to save our town’s historic heritage. The …

If Mr. Greeley had accurate knowledge …
Another meeting between state transportation officials and residents is scheduled for Sept. 13.

The subject of the gathering was the DOT's $73 million, 2 1/2-year project to rehabilitate Interstate 80 currently in progress. The plan has come under fire with many Littleton Road area residents due to the presence of a construction staging site at Littleton between Kingston and Marcella roads. Those who live nearby have stated objections including the removal of old-growth trees that served as a sound buffer between the highway and residential homes, the removal of road shoulder on Littleton Road, the presence of construction vehicles in neighborhoods and what they say are …

At council meeting, Littleton Road area residents supplied town leaders with questions and research to present to DOT.
Mayor James Barberio and representatives of township departments are slated to meet behind closed doors with New Jersey Department of Transportation officials Wednesday to clear the air over the already underway Interstate 80 rehabilitation project. The announcement was made at the Tuesday Township Council meeting at Town Hall. A group of Lake Parsippany residents were on hand to deliver questions and requests for NJDOT to the mayor, who said he would present them on Wednesday. Barberio praised citizen activist Mary Purzycki for her efforts to stand up for her neighbors and the safety of the Littleton Road corridor. "I will definitely take your questions to the meeting," he told her. "Mary, you're all right!" Purzycki launched a citizen …
