Twp of Washington NJ, Twp of Washington Mayor Peter Calamari said in a Facebook post that ,”There seems to be renewed concern about development at the 450 Pascack Road property. How often does over three acres of property come available adjacent to an existing field? I would like to see the town acquire the property using the proceeds from the grant we are likely to receive from the Swim Club property purchase. What better way to spend open space grant money than to acquire additional property that would remain open space next to the town’s flagship field. I hope everyone will recall my dedication to acquiring the Swim Club property. I was involved with the group that mobilized the residents into showing their support for that purchase after it was initially turned down by the Council. Your voices and concerns were heard loud enough to get one member of the council to change his mind. Please let your voices and concerns be heard again for this purchase. I want to publicly state that although I do not have a vote on allocating money for the purchase, I am in favor of purchasing this property.”

Twp of Washington NJ, on Friday afternoon the Westwood fire department was dispatched mutual aid to Washington Township for a working house fire. Truck 1 was the first due truck company, due to Township still being trained on their new ladder truck. Truck 1 took the front of the structure and went right to work with 2 crews. While the first crew went up to the second floor to start opening up the ceiling the second crew laddered the building for multiple escape routes in case of an emergency. The interior crews made a good stop in the attic so the fire could not spread further into the house. Also on scene was Engine 1 and Utility 1 with manpower. Good job by all crews and good job to Twp of Washington Fire Dept. . – Bergen County with a quick knock on the main body of fire.  Pascack Road was closed in both directions (in front of Memorial Field) .
