Mayor's Message

Mayor Barsa’s Message to Residents

Summer is here and I wish everyone the best in trying to stay cool!  I know it’s been hectic the last couple of weeks with the end of the school year graduation and celebrations.  I wanted to mention a few things residents should be aware of over the coming months.  

 First, as many of you have heard there are several projects being undertaken in and around the Borough by various entities in the coming weeks; I encourage everyone to include additional travel time needed due to the congestion caused by altered traffic patterns.  We expect these projects to last through November.  I would familiarize yourselves with some alternate routes for use during peak travel times.       

 Second, the Norwood Recreation commission will be running their annual Summer Camp from Monday, July 2ndthrough Friday, July 27thfrom 9AM to 12PM.  Camp activities will include arts & crafts, various games, swim club days, a petting zoo and many other activities meant to alleviate the doldrums of summer’s hottest month.  For more information contact the Camp Director Donna Plescia at 201-316-4664. 

 Third, I would like to invite all Borough Residents to our Independence Day celebration on Wednesday, July 4th at Kennedy Field.   The Fireworks Display will commence at sundown (approximately 9:45PM).  Join me for this great show as we celebrate our great countries 242ndBirthday.  Saturday, July 7thwill be the rain date for the Fireworks Display if it is cancelled due to inclement weather.   

 Lastly, I encourage residents to check out the “Residents” section of the Borough website for helpful tips relevant to our community.    Have a happy and safe summer.”
