Some updates on construction projects going on around Bogota.
Bogota Blog NJ has learn that a third option is now being considered for the QuickChek on River Rd. in Bogota. Since the lease on both business' ( the QuickChek & Rite Aid) is coming up for renewal a plan to have QuickChek take over the whole site is starting to be developed. The new plan is to have a 24-hour QuickChek market which will also have a 3 pump gas island on the front. The QuickChek would then expand to have a cafe area with both indoor & outdoor seating available. A projection of having job opportunities for up to 30 employees once the new store is fully operational. There would also be a new landscaping plan for the surrounding area.
The previous plans was to have QuickChek move out and Rite Aid use the whole space. Then a plan was made to have both stores stay the same with improvements. This latest plan still needs to go to before the Zoning & Planning Boards for approval.
There is a Borough Council meeting on Thursday 2- Oct. at 7:30p. The next Planning board & Zoning meeting will be held on Tuesday 14-Oct starting at 7:30p. It will be held in the Borough Hall Council Chambers located on the second floor of Borough Hall 375 Larch Ave. Bogota, NJ.

The new offices of the Bogota Board of Education have been opened while under a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy. Final approval is being held back until work on the sidewalk has been finished. The new Board office is a one story structure with a central hallway with meeting rooms and offices on either side. School Board Superintendent Dr. Letizia Pantoliano expressed her approval of the new building by saying that it improves the work environment to be in an office instead of a converted house.
