Park approved for Essex Street

The City Council approved a $1.05-million bond ordinance Monday night for park improvements near Riverwalk along Essex Street.

That makes for a good lead-in to our new poll question this month (to the right): How important is green/open space in your vision of downtown Rahway?
— Fewer condos, more parks.
— We don’t need Central Park, but balance new development with open space.
— If it doesn’t help pay taxes, don’t bother with it.
