The Concerned Citizens Of Roselle Park will be having their second 2014 public meeting on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 1 p.m. at Sun Tavern, located at 600 Westfield Avenue West in Roselle Park, to hold an open conversation with residents and invited guests Roselle Park Mayor Joseph Accardi and Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley as well as United States Congressman Donald Payne, Jr.
The meeting - originally scheduled on January 18th of this year - was rescheduled when Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley was unable to attend due to an unforeseen conflict that occurred at the last minute. Roselle Park Mayor Joseph Accardi responded that he had previous engagements. In attendance for that meeting were Roselle Park councilmen Carl Hokanson and Mohamed ‘Gino’ Elmarassy and it resulted in a conversation among residents who asked questions regarding the current status of business development in the Borough. A small plan of action was initiated to determine what businesses are in Roselle Park. Additionally, The Concerned Citizens Of Roselle Park discussed upcoming plans to repeat their “Happy Birthday Roselle Park” program for a second year.
A follow-up meeting will be held and both Roselle Park Mayor Joseph Accardi and Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley will be invited once again to attend and discuss their municipality’s efforts. United States Congressman Donald Payne, Jr.’s office has also been contacted to attend, as the Congressman is not only the Borough’s Congressman but also on the Committee on Small Business.
The Concerned Citizens Of Roselle Park is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition formed with the intent to cultivate active interest among residents, property owners, businesses, and their government. More information, as well as videos of municipal, Board Of Education, and other meetings can be found on their website at rp-citizens.org (link).
