Public Meeting on Watsessing Park 7/27

Your input is needed at a public meeting hosted by Essex County on Monday, July 27, 2009, at the Senior Center building in the park at Conger Street at 7 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to present the County's plans for constructing a combination soccer/la crosse field with artificial turf, lighting, seating, and partial fencing, in the section of Watsessing Park bordering Bloomfield Avenue between the Parkway and the area around the bandstand.

A second artificial turf field would be constructed in the central area within the boundaries of the running track in the section of the park between Glenwood Avenue and Cleveland Terrace.

Please come to the meeting and express your opinion about these plans. Thank you.

New Facebook Group Formed for the WHNA

For the many people who are on Facebook, the WHNA has created an affinity group on Facebook for the WHNA so that people can chat in a more real-time way and we will have a new way to get news out to members (in addition to the e-mails that are sent out).

If you are on Facebook, log in and then go to Groups and search for "Watsessing Heights Neighborhood Association" and you'll find it. We have 21 people in the group so far and are hoping for more!

If you aren't on Facebook, go to their website,, and sign up. It is easy and you don't have to put anything more personal than a name (doesn't have to be your real name) and some very basic information on it. Then you'll be able to access the WHNA group.

Hope to see you on Facebook!
