Mayor Optimistic About Downtown Westfield in State of the Town Address

Mayor Optimistic About Downtown Westfield in State of the Town Address

During his annual state of the town address Tuesday night, Mayor Andy Skibitsky spoke optimistically about the future of Downtown Westfield and confronting the challenges it faces and provided an update on the Downtown Task Force initiative.

"Yes, there are more storefront vacancies than we are accustomed to, and the town will do all that it can to address any conditions within its control, but keep in mind that we are building on a very strong foundation and successful heritage," Skibitsky said. "There are far more strengths and positives than there are weaknesses and negatives. It may take a little time, but I am confident that we will emerge from this readjustment period just as strong, if not stronger than ever."
