WESTFIELD, NJ — Local health officials are considering a mandate that pre-schools and day care centers make their immunization rates more widely known.

The public this week sounded off an extensive plan for parks and fields that shows a wide range of improvements possible for both municipal and school properties.

Both the municipality and the owner of a 97-year-old movie theater, which closed abruptly six months ago, are working to convert the landmark location into a performing arts center.
