Relief Program Update for Small Businesses from Bob Zuckerman, Executive Director

Relief Program Update for Small Businesses from Bob Zuckerman, Executive Director

 

Dear Westfield Business and Property Owners,

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bob Zuckerman, and as of today I am the new Executive Director of the Downtown Westfield Corporation. I know what you must be thinking: what a time to start a new job as a SID director! Fortunately for us, I have over a decade of experience running business (or special) improvement districts, including my most recent stint as a longtime director of the South Orange Village Center Alliance. I also have experience in dealing with major crises, as I was the director of the Lower East Side Business Improvement District in New York City when that neighborhood was devastated by Superstorm Sandy. So, I’ve been through a major crisis before, and there’s one thing I can assure you: working in partnership with all of you and with our government leaders in Westfield, we will get through this together! 

I will be reaching out to each and every one of you individually over the course of the next week or so, but I did want to make sure that you all have the most up-to-date information on the various relief programs that are now in place to help small businesses like yours. My staff, Beth Brenner and Nicki McAuliffe, and I are all working virtually, and we will do our best to help answer questions you may have about these programs. Additionally, we are recruiting volunteer financial professionals who will also help answer individual questions about applying for assistance. Lastly, there is counseling available from the Small Business Development Center and other organizations like the Women’s Business Centers which we’ll tell you about in a future email. From local to state to federal relief programs, the following is a summary of what’s currently available.

Virtual Westfield -- A New Way to Shop & Eat Local

Virtual Westfield -- A New Way to Shop & Eat Local

The Best Time to Shop Local is Now

Downtown Westfield Has What You Need

Amid the Covid-19 crisis most businesses are OPEN in a new way — taking precautions and using social distancing — to deliver the food, products and services you want. Even restaurants and businesses that did not deliver before are delivering now, to homes and for curbside pickup. Please spend your extra time at home checking in with these local businesses online, by phone, text and shopping by Facetime. Your efforts will be tremendously appreciated.


Support local businesses in these ways:

  • Order in, for delivery or curbside pickup,
  • Buy gift cards now to use later,
  • If you are sick ask for “no contact delivery” where you pay ahead and food is left for you on your doorstep,
  • Don’t visit a restaurant if you’re sick or have been recently exposed,
  • Please be patient if restaurants have fewer employees working,
  • Consider tipping more, business is down and it will be greatly appreciated.

As Mayor Brindle remarked, “Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to keep our community healthy and functioning, including our first responders, healthcare workers, janitors, and the many hourly wage workers who are doing their best to keep our store shelves stocked.”

What's New:  Interactive Kits & Conceirges

▪️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

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.
