"Virtual" 5K Pizza Run on Sunday, July 19, 2020

"Virtual" 5K Pizza Run on Sunday, July 19, 2020

Westfield’s Virtual 5K Pizza Run is Sunday, July 19, 2020

Run and raise dough for downtown Westfield businesses!

The Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC) is excited to announce the Virtual Pizza Run on Sunday, July 19, 2020. Switching from our regular Downtown Westfield 5K & Pizza Extravaganza to a virtual format allows the community to stay safe while participating in this well-loved tradition. 

Register here for the Virtual 5K Pizza Run

Join our race director, Coach Sam Tooley, of Alpha Fit Club, and register for Westfield's Virtual 5K Pizza Run. You'll get instructions, training plans from Coach Sam Tooley, T-shirts*, pizza and prizes for winners—while raising dough for a good cause. All of the event's net proceeds will go towards downtown beautification and recovery, supporting downtown businesses adapting to COVID-19 requirements. 

How does it work? Included in the registration will be race day instructions and training plans for all levels. Run anytime, anywhere before race day, you'll receive a link to the Trackster app to track your distance and upload your race time by the end of the day on July 19. 

*Sign up before July 2, included in your race registration is a performance t-shirt AND a free training plan (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) created by Coach Sam Tooley. 

Of course, no 5K Pizza Run would be complete without pizza! All registrants will receive a $3 coupon for a slice of pizza from your choice of downtown Westfield pizzerias (good through 7/31/20). And that's not all. On race day, Downtown Westfield will be giving away 50 pizzas. Order from any of our downtown Westfield pizzerias and see if your order arrives with a "Golden ticket" for a free pizza in a future order.  

Winners will be announced within days of the event with the winner of each category receiving a certificate, social media mention, and a free pizza! 

*A Virtual Pizza Run t-shirt will be available for anyone who registers before July 2.  The Westfield Virtual Pizza Run T-shirt will be available for contactless pick up on July 17 to wear on race day.

Join the team:

  1. Sign up. Here is a link to register for Virtual 5K Pizza Run. The fee for the 5K is $35.
  2. If you'd like, you can create a fundraising team, like Coach Sam's Alpha Squad, or join one! The money raised will go directly to the downtown business corporation to help our local businesses. Join the team of your favorite local shop or eatery for a friendly competition amongst our businesses and see who's team can raise the most money. The winning team runs away with bragging rights, a sign proclaiming their dominance, social media posts, and a trophy.

Coach Sam Tooley and JackRabbit Westfield are hosting a complimentary Virtual 5K Pizza Run training workout (stationary, not a run) this Sunday, June 28, at 9 AM on Quimby Street, Westfield NJ. No registration is necessary, grab your sneakers, water, a towel, and a yoga mat, and get your training plan in motion. 

We hope to see you out there running and raising dough!

Covid-19 Update from Mayor Shelley Brindle

Covid-19 Update from Mayor Shelley Brindle

COVID-19 UPDATE FROM MAYOR SHELLEY BRINDLE: MARCH 26

▶️ CONFIRMED CASES
As of today, there are 6,876 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Jersey. These include seven additional cases in Westfield -- two males (ages 59 and 22) and five females (ages 52, 45, 43, 32 and 20) -- all are managing symptoms at home. This brings the official count from the Board of Health to 26 cases. For a more detailed breakdown of statewide numbers, visit the NJ Department of Health COVID-19 Dashboard at https://www.nj.gov/health/…/topics/covid2019_dashboard.shtml.


▶️ FEDERAL AND STATE UPDATES
▪️Today, Governor Murphy announced that President Trump issued a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of New Jersey. The declaration will provide federal assistance to supplement statewide recovery efforts affected by the COVID-19 pandemic beginning on January 20, 2020.

▪️In New Jersey, 155,000 workers filed for unemployment in the last week – 16 times the number who filed the week before.

▪️Governor Murphy signed legislation Wednesday evening to expand New Jersey’s Temporary Disability Insurance and Family Leave Insurance programs to provide more workers with access to paid leave benefits during public health emergencies.

▪️The Governor also indicated that he will not be prepared to revisit the closure of school districts until at least April 17, at the very earliest, and that such a decision will be based on careful discussion with public health and safety experts, educators, and districts.

▪️On Saturday, March 28, the COVID-19 testing sites at Bergen Community College and PNC Bank Arts Center will accept ONLY symptomatic health care workers and first responders. Beginning Sunday, March 29, the sites will move to a new schedule, which is posted on covid19.nj.gov.

▪️As part of the State’s Main Street Stimulus focus, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority approved an initial $75 million program to help stabilize small businesses. It is believed that this program will be able to provide direct financial assistance and support for between 3,000 and 5,000 small businesses: https://www.nj.gov/…/…/news/562020/approved/20200326b.shtml….

▪️A quick clarification on an error we made in a previous update: While the federal income tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15, New Jersey has not yet announced a definitive extension deadline for filing state income taxes. The state legislature passed a bill recommending a June 30 extension deadline, and we will communicate any updates about its progress from the Governor’s office as they become available.

▪️Congressman Malinowski is launching a food drive to help restock food pantries across the district and has established one of his collection boxes in Westfield (730 Lawrence Avenue). You can drop off supermarket gift cards, canned vegetables, beans and fruit, granola bars, crackers, bottled water, apple juice, coffee, cleaning supplies, diapers, and paper goods by April 6.


▶️ LOCAL UPDATES
▪️Who’s ready for an encore? Tune in to Live with Kelly and Ryan at 9am tomorrow on WABC7 to see Westfield neighbor and Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik reprise his porch performance to raise money for Westfield United Fund’s #welovelocal campaign to support our local businesses. And, in even better news, the Westfield Foundation has offered to match the next $30,000 in donations! We have already received more than 40 applications from local businesses who need our support -- please make your donation today at www.westfieldunitedfund.org.

▪️Although the Westfield Memorial Library remains closed until further notice, remember that online access will continue. For residents without a card, please request one on the library’s website (www.wmlnj.org). In addition, during the COVID-19 closure, no fines or DVD fees will accrue. Please follow the library on Facebook (@WMLNJ) to catch all of their virtual programming -- including storytime, virtual Lego club, crafting, daily teen writing classes, author readings, drawing tutorials, and more. As always, members can access movies, books and music through the library’s digital services, such Overdrive, Freading and Hoopla.

▪️Thanks to Westfield Police Officers Jackus, R. Johnson and Kenny, along with Chaplain Gibbons, for unloading four pallets of food for the Westfield Food Pantry from the Community Food Bank. In addition, Officer Kenny and Detective Savnik today delivered two full bins of donated masks to Overlook -- many thanks to everyone who helped make this happen.

Thanks to each of you for your ongoing support and willingness to help. Stay well.

Read Mayor Brindle's March 9 Remarks about Redevelopment in the Town's Growth Strategy

Read Mayor Brindle's March 9 Remarks about Redevelopment in the Town's Growth Strategy

A BOLD ACTION PLAN FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE

In two weeks, we will be presenting our 2020 budget to the public. While the budget is still being finalized, I want to take this opportunity to provide some context behind the numbers, let you know what to expect in this year’s tax bill, and share our growth strategy for the future.

First and foremost, some background. For the past decade, the Town has taken a very conservative approach to budgeting which has effectively maintained the status quo while yielding a positive AAA bond rating and sizable surplus. It’s an approach that a financial advisor would apply to a couple in retirement, ensuring there is adequate funding to support basic needs for their remaining years, while leaving something for the grandkids.

For Westfield, this has resulted in a healthy nest egg, but has come at the expense of long term investment in roads, parks, infrastructure, and our downtown to adequately meet the reasonable expectations of taxpayers.

It’s a strategy that has also made us overly reliant on revenue sources that contradict good long-term policy, such as parking tickets and permits for tear downs, road openings, and construction. This not only undermines our neighborhood character, downtown vibrancy, and quality of life, but also makes us vulnerable to the whims of the economy, which has necessitated an excessive surplus as a safeguard.

Reimagining the Future of Rialto Theater

Reimagining the Future of Rialto Theater

As Mayor Shelley Brindle shared in her recent State of the Town address, a visionary and experienced Rialto Advisory Group has been formed and is working with the owner of the Rialto to reimagine the future of the theater in Westfield -- possibly transforming it into a performing arts center. The Rialto Advisory Committee (RAC) is comprised of volunteer residents with expertise in commercial real estate and financing, theater management, grant writing, economic development, and the film industry, to name a few. 

The RAC continues to seek a funding partner to help realize a potential vision of the Rialto as a performing arts center, as the current marketplace does not appear to support the space re-opening strictly as a movie theater. As the Town is not looking to take on the full financial responsibility of running the theater, ongoing conversations continue about potential funding avenues that would make the most sense in terms of investment, viability and versatility.

Spice Bazaar owners launch new restaurant in Westfield 

Spice Bazaar owners launch new restaurant in Westfield 

The two married owners of Spice Bazaar in Westfield, NJ recently opened a Mediterranean restaurant down the street called Lavash.

Spice Bazaar restaurant owners Kanika Bakshi and Simran Bakshi opened a new restaurant in Westfield, New Jersey. Both Kanika and Simran are known for their re-opening and rebranding of Spice Bazaar Modern Indian Dining, which relocated in June to 39 Elm Street. Unlike Spice Bazaar, their new venture concept will be serving up Mediterranean food under the name Lavash.

After their success at Spice Bazaar, they are now launching Lavash in Spice Bazaar’s original spot at 114 Quimby Street. During the first month of Lavash’s opening, Kanika and Simran will be giving out at least 100 free meals to Westfield, Fanwood, Plainfield and Cranford locals.

Both owners have not defined the menu items yet but will begin creating dishes soon.

Lavash will be open before the end of 2019. Stay tuned.
