This Week on Patch: A Community Forum and the Latest on a Public Garden

Here are a few things we're working on this week for Wayne Patch.

Here is a sample of what we’re working on this week for Wayne Patch.

  • We’ll let you know how the latest meeting of the Concerned Citizens of Wayne goes. The group, composed of Wayne residents, will hold an open forum about the Affordable Care Act at the library Monday. 
  • We’ll tell you about how the Community Garden project is coming along. Resident Victor Alfieri, a sustainability advocate, is heading up the project. The garden is designed to teach residents how to be lead more sustainable lives and foster a sense of community within the township.

Residents can sign up to help create the garden at town hall Monday.

  • The Wayne YMCA will host a community health forum about how to prevent type 2 Diabetes on Wednesday. Local health care personnel will participate in a panel discussion. We’ll let you know how it goes and what is discussed exactly.

Chickens In Wayne I have been getting e-mails and calls from Wayne residents regarding owning and raising chickens in Wayne, NJ, and I would like to clear up the issue. The fact is, Wayne town officials were enforcing a law that had nothing to do with homeowners. I proved this fact in court on June 28, 2012. All Wayne residents can LEGALLY raise chickens, ducks, quail, turkeys etc., ON ANY SIZE PROPERTY. Roosters are legal but I do not recommended them. If any town official tells you otherwise please take down their name and call me immediately. Call with any questions: Victor 201-220-4862. Sorry for the confusion.

If you're planning on signing up for a plot in the public garden, you'd better hurry. There was a line when I went to town hall to sign up and it looks like it will fill up fast.
