I hope you had a chance to enjoy this past weekend and to celebrate and or remember those who helped us to make us who we are - Happy Mother’s Day to the moms, stepmoms, god-moms, caregivers and mentors.
As part of National Bike Month, Westfield will be installing two bike oases. One will be located in Municipal Lot 1 behind Bovella’s. The second location will be located on Elmer Street behind the Rialto.
The intention of these bike oases is to provide amenities for cyclists, including new bike racks, benches, a water bottle filler, and bike tool repair station to further encourage biking in the downtown. We anticipate work to be completed on these projects in the coming weeks so that the new facilities are ready for use this summer. As always, when riding, please wear a helmet.
Also, this week it was decided that $300K will be dedicated to a study of our grass field plan including all requirements for them to remain safe and well-maintained for our sports teams. In addition to the Edison Fields Project, these grass playing fields will help to improve playing time and are a win-win for everyone.
I’d like to share with you some upcoming events:
