What Will be Built at 125 Pompton Plains Crossroad in Wayne?
WAYNE, NJ – It was another long Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting on Monday night, when the proposed warehouse to be built at 125 Pompton Plains Crossroad was discussed. By the time 10:45pm rolled around, the attorney for March Monello Pompton, LLC had a choice of not calling his last witness and having a vote on the project, or – once again – delaying the vote. It made sense to delay the vote, so a decision on the proposed changes to the project won’t happen until, at least, the first of May. A 40,000 square foot, multi-story building with office space, three...

NJ takes over Paterson police after crisis worker's shooting
New Jersey’s attorney general said Monday that his office has taken control of the police department in the state’s third-largest city, Paterson, less than a month after officers there fatally shot a well-known crisis intervention worker during a tense standoff. Attorney General Matt Platkin said at a news conference that his office had assumed control of all police functions without delay, including the division that investigates internal police matters. His announcement didn’t mention the shooting of 31-year-old Najee Seabrooks directly, but it reflected activists’ concerns about how the department was being run. “There is a crisis of confidence in law enforcement in this city,” he said to brief cheers and calls of “Thank you” from the audience. “Something has to change, and it will change starting now. Earlier this morning, I exercised my authority as attorney general and superseded the Paterson Police Department.” Platkin said the takeover amounted to a “pledge” to residents and officers that the state is committed to safety in the city.
