BY  |  Friday, Dec 30, 2016 3:15pm  |  COMMENTS (0)

You’ll find insights like that and belly laughs in Career Suicide, a one man show by Chris Gethard at the Lynn Redgrave Theater in the East Village. The show tells the story of Gethard’s struggle with depression, alcoholism and self-destructive behavior, adventures—and misadventures with therapists—and his comedy performing and writing career. Act fast, because the performance closes January 8. Continue Reading

Montclair Councilor Spiller Fields Questions about Development, Vacant Store Fronts and Parking at Third Ward Meeting

BY  |  Thursday, Dec 22, 2016 10:15am

Sean-Spiller-11-24-14-350x262When it comes to residential parking around the Wellmont Theater, Montclarians in the Third Ward are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. Parking and development were some of the big issues discussed at a community meeting held from 7:30-9 p.m. on Monday, December 19 at the Montclair Public Library on Fullerton Avenue. Fourth Ward Councilor Renee Baskerville, Officer Bart Guthrie from the Montclair Police Department’s Community Service Unit and Montclair Business Improvement District Executive Director Israel Cronk, were also at the meeting.

Spiller kicked off the meeting by briefing the audience on what’s going on around town.

Seymour Street: Last week the Historic Preservation Committee reviewed plans for this development that includes the area around the Wellmont Theater and Social Security building. The committee reviewed what the structure should look like and what materials should be used. The design then goes before the Planning Board and back to the Historic Preservation Committee. “If you’re interested, make sure your voice is heard,” said Spiller. The councilor reminded the crowd if they feel strongly about the plan they need voice their opinion at a Planning Board meeting. Sending an email to him or Planning Director Janice Talley is not an effective way of communicating on this issue. By law, residents need to make their opinion known at a public meeting so the Board can discuss it. Councilor Baskerville seconded Spiller’s point by saying it was very important for residents who are concerned about overdevelopment and density to voice their opinions at Planning Board meetings.

I was assigned to chimney security today at middle school in the State of Washington, to prevent Betsy DeVoss from trying to climb in that way when she couldn't get in the front door. Protesters abounded below while I rode shotgun on the roof. We're with Montclair all the way. Glad you're here MontClairVoyant!
