Planning Board

26-November-2016
  On Tuesday 22-November the Bogota Planning Board held its regular meeting. The first order of business was for the board to authorized on site approval of a number of cosmetic changes to 297 Palisade Ave.
   The majority of the meeting was to continue to hear testimony from professional of the River Development Corporation about its plan redeveloped the former Hess site into the River Club complex.  Some of the points made was informing the board that Bergen Country will realign W. Ft. Lee rd to allow turning lanes, into the Apartment and retail areas along with providing areas for two new bus stops. Additional signage, and a system to provide alternate parking for those  parking spaces that are subject to possible flooding.
   The maintenance on the Borough's sewer line was completed earlier in that week, which now allows the River Development Corporation to finalize their design of a system to work with the Borough's system.  Part of River Club's system will be Veritable Rate Sewer pumps which will control the flow into the public line to reduce the risk of overloading the excising lines.
   River Development Corporation along with Hess, and other agencies will be responsible for the environmental  clean-up of the site. Some area will have their containment removed, while other parts will have an impenetrable cap sealing them. Monitoring wells will remain and upgraded as needed.
   The final points discuss was the landscaping of the development.  The Borough's Landscape Professional raise concern about the "Prairie Design" of the landscaping plan. He encourage the addition of more trees to the design to allow a canopy effect for  visual and environment reasons.  He also raised concerns about the irrigation of the vegetation in the development. Then the River Development Corporation's Warren Waters was allowed to explain the design choice by saying that  the River Development Corporation plan is to have an environmental coordinated  design to reduce the amount of water needed and to use a system that will use rainwater collected from the building to assist in the irrigation of the landscaping. Mr. Waters also said that any landscaping design will incorporate as many types and amount of trees and other visual elements as possible.
    River Development Corporation then answered question from board members and the public regarding the River Club and then ended their  presentation.
   The Planning Board then announced the Special Meeting for Tuesday-6 December. This will take place in the Borough Council Chamber and start at 7:30p. They are scheduling to present  a resolution on  the River Development Corporation for the River Club in order to allow a vote this redevelopment plan. This meeting will be open to the public. The Council Chamber are located on the second Floor of Borough Hall at 375 Larch Ave Bogota, NJ

Apple Pie

26-November-2016
 On Tuesday-22-November the Bogota Public Library held their annual Apple Pie Workshop. This was presented by Cali Skrnich who took the  bakers through  a step-by step process of creating a hand made dessert for the Holidays.  The attendees started with making their own pie crust from scratch and molding it in a pie pan. Ms Skrnich explained the importance of keeping the combination of floor, water and work to make a crust that will be able to use for a good base for the pie. Next came picking out some apples, a mix of Granny Smith, and Red Delicious, which were then cut into thin slices, or small cubes and placed in a bowl.  The apples bits  were mixed together with sugar and,or brown sugar until coated. The the mixture was placed in the crust , and a crumble was added with the final step was to bake the pies at home and enjoy them.
   The prevailing atmosphere of the evening was  that of letting a community of bakers, young and old, be together while preparing something of their own. Friends came in groups of two or three to chat, share stories and utensil.  Parents and their children had the opportunity to work on something together and to show off to the rest of their Family. While other just took the time to make a desserts  and learn from others.
