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 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. 


They are in the process of applying for grants to fund the cost of a consultant with specific experience in the performing arts and theater renovation space—with the intention of conducting a full assessment and feasibility study of how to proceed. They have collected valuable input and are ready to move on to this next step in the near future.  Mayor Brindle will provide updates about these and other exciting developments as progress is made.

Westfield is Getting Greener

Westfield is Getting Greener

Westfield is Getting Greener 

It's important, but it’s not always easy, being green. Environmentally-friendly changes can add big costs to small business owners’ already tight bottom line. But that hasn't stopped more than 30 local businesses who earned their Green Team 2019 medallion for taking sustainable actions.

Westfield businesses' desire to be more eco-friendly was helped along this past year by a group of volunteer Westfield representatives and residents who work with the Mayor and Town Council, called the Green Team. They identified environmentally sustainable steps that are do-able for many small businesses— and using these recommendations, many downtown Westfield businesses have succeeded in being greener. By avoiding plastic packaging and utensils, using cardboard take out containers, composting and providing water refill stations, among other actions— they have initiated changes that are making a positive impact.

Keep your eye out for reusable shopping bags and medallions awarded by the Westfield Green Team to the businesses that are making it a priority to be green.

As the Green Westfield Medallion Program grows, more and more businesses are participating. Learn how small changes are making a big difference in our community. https://www.westfieldnj.gov/medallion.

Congrats Bovella's Pastry Shoppe for making the cut in this recent article, New Jersey Date Night: Cookies Aren't Just for Kids. "Bovella's has the cookie down to a delicious science. With about 70 years of baking history, it's understandable. You'll find many cookies you know, such as macaroons, chocolate chip and ruggulah, and you'll discover some new favorites too. Savoardi cookies will make you realize that Italian lady fingers are a step above the rest and their frangipane cookies with sugary almond cream filling might just become your new favorite. Check out the taralli, a crunchy sugary Southern Italian mainstay - you won't be disappointed!" Read more... 101 E. Broad St., 908.232.4149. www.bovellas.com
