Proposed Closing of Newark Ave Between Grove & Barrow for Pedestrian Plaza
There are two ordinances set to go before City Council to turn Newark Avenue from Grove Street to Barrow Street and a small portion of Erie Street into a pedestrian plaza and then redirect the surrounding streets around these closures. This is set to be a pilot program, lasting one year. This will be before City Council on April 23rd. If you want to speak on the subject, get on the speaker’s list by calling the city clerk's office at (201) 547-5150. The second reading will be May 14th.
