Illustrating the Agenda

Almost exactly one year ago, I found an anonymous note on my door from a concerned resident warning me about an impending zoning change to the township-owned property behind my house. Although Teaneck had done their legal duty in telling the public about this rezoning, it had never come to my attention before that in part because the property was referenced by tax lots, which at the time meant nothing to me.

As a result, I’m planning to start making maps of properties that may be affected by upcoming changes implemented by Teaneck’s government, as given by council, zoning and planning board agendas. Where possible, links to supporting documentation will be included. One can then easily see what is planned near their house, even if they don’t get a personal notice about it.

See here for a map of properties mentioned in the upcoming 5/29 council meeting agenda.

School Bus Safety

As many residents and parents are no doubt aware, there was a horrific bus crash that occurred on May 17th involving students at Paramus’ East Brook Middle School, on their way to a class trip.

On Tuesday, it came to light that

“The bus driver, Hudy Muldrow, 77, of Paterson, has had his license suspended 14 times since he began driving in 1975, said Mairin Bellack, a commission spokesperson. Muldrow has eight speeding tickets on his record, as well as one careless driving ticket and a summons for unsafe operation of a motor vehicle, from 2003, Bellack said.”
