WEST ORANGE, NJ – With the aging of the baby boom generation making the need for high-quality senior services more important than ever, the members of the West Orange Township Council urged residents 55 years and older to take the Senior Citizen Survey that is currently available on

Theresa DeNova, health officer for West Orange, reviewed the highlights of the comprehensive survey at Tuesday’s council meeting. She said that printed versions of the survey will be available at various locations throughout the township, but it would be far preferable for people to take the survey online for efficiency purposes.

The township worked with Montclair State University to put together this survey, which will be available online until Oct. 31, 2017.

Councilwoman Michelle Casalino said that West Orange High School (WOHS) students will be helping local seniors complete the survey in the high school’s library media center.

“This survey is important to the township for many reasons,” said Casalino. “It will be an especially great tool to utilize to get various grants that fund senior services. It will bring more revenue into the township.”

In his redevelopment update to the council, business administrator John Sayers said that phase one of Prism Capital partners Edison Village is moving along very well. He said that work is currently being done to complete the inside apartments, many of which will be ready for tenants in the fall. Realtors are now showing the property to prospective tenants.

Sayers also announced that the roof of the St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, which was severely damaged by a fire in 2016, will be fixed in the coming weeks.
