Salon finds another space

A beauty salon that was rebuffed in an attempt to gain space on Irving Street has found a new home on St. Georges Avenue. Heavenly Hair Styles plans a grand opening this month at its new location near West Grand/Westfield avenues.

The Redevelopment Agency last month failed to approve a zoning overlay, by a 3-3-1 vote, that would have exempted the salon from a city ordinance that prohibits personal service businesses within 1,000 feet of each other.

Commissioners are expected to memorialize a resolution on the overlay at their next meeting (Nov. 12), according to Cynthia Solomon, director of community development and secretary to the agency.


No surprises but here are Rahway’s unofficial election results for anyone interested, which do not include absentee ballots.
