NUTLEY, NJ - The change in weather, just in time for Earth Day, brought Nutley residents and students outdoors to enjoy the weather and clean up. While capturing the stories of the day TAPinto Nutley visited the parking lot of the Ciccollini property to discover that post-Winter clean up has already started, just as the Mayor stated on a New York television broadcast.

Earlier this week, Nutley Mayor Dr. Joseph P. Scarpelli explained that because of winter storms, the lot was not cleared out, but now that the weather has changed it will be cleaned, paved, striped, and meters will be put in place.

The plan is to use the parking lot for municipal parking, at least until the redevelopment study is complete and put into action.

According to Nutley Mayor Joseph P. Scarpelli "the plan is to move the farmers' market" to the Ciccolini property on Franklin Ave. The JerseyFresh Nutley Farmers’ Market, has called Municipal Lot No. 1, behind the Nutley Diner, as its home for years. The market typically runs from Fathers Day through the end of October. 

 The township purchased the building in 2016. It was occupied by the Ciccolini's through the fall of 2017. This Spring the building served as a drop off and sorting location for 'Scouting for Food.' 

TAPinto Nutley will continue to follow the redevelopment of the Ciccolini property, as well as the much larger redevelopment project at On3. is a member of the New Jersey Press Association, and is the only locally owned news organization serving the community.
