Recreation Commission Discusses Gumbert Park

WESTFIELD — The Westfield Recreation Commission will be discussing plans to construct a restroom/ storage building at Gumbert Park at its regular monthly public meeting on Monday, November 1, at 8 p. m. in the Recreation Conference Room of the Municipal Building.

For the past several months, the Commission, along with the Town of Westfield and the Westfield Baseball League, have been working on plans to provide a building within the confines of Gumbert Park to provide services to the users of the park and assist with improved maintenance of the facility.

This cooperative effort has resulted in plans to construct a lowimpact building that would house restroom facilities and storage space with the possibility of a future concession area.

The Commission, representatives of the Westfield Baseball League and Thomas DiGiorgio, architect of the building, will be on hand to provide detailed information and answer questions.

Copies of the building plan may be obtained at the Recreation Office in the Municipal Building.

For further information, please call the recreation office at (908) 7894080.

This year’s participants, who have taken courses in Law and United States Government and Politics at the high school, were selected by Dr. Maria Schmidt, Social Studies Department Chairwoman.

After viewing a videotaped welcome by Congressman Franks, the five high school students attended presentations by representatives of various governmental agencies and departments, including the Attorney General’s office, the armed forces, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
