Speak Up. Help SaveMontclair
1. Attend planning board meetings and speak up during public questions and comment sections to be on public record.
This has the most direct influence. PB members respond to a well thought out, sensible viewpoint. The PB members volunteer to serve and need and want information from residents. PB meetings are open to the public and generally meet two Mondays a month at 205 Claremont Ave. See the schedule and agendas on the town site here.
If you do not want to speak, email a letter to the Town Planner, Janice Talley and ask to have it distributed to board members or more effective is to have someone read your letter in your behalf to the board.
2.Watch the planning board and council meetings on TV 34 if you cannot attend, but most importantly communicate with town officials.
3. Communicate with email or meet with your respective councilor and the mayor or whole council, as appropriate. Meetings and ward councilor email addresses are on the town website, www.montclairnjusa.org. Call the town if you need your ward councilor’s name, (973) 509-4901. Council meetings are open to the public and generally meet on two Tuesdays a month at 205 Claremont Ave. See the schedule and agendas on the townsite above.
