Newsmakers: Ask Mayor Ben Lucarelli

Pose questions to the Fair Haven mayor; and, his answers will be posted next week.

If there’s something you’ve had on your mind and been meaning to ask someone in town with authority, now’s your chance.

Starting with , Rumson-Fair Haven Patch will be featuring a series of question-and-answer forums on the site targeted to make residents better acquainted with people of authority in different capacities.

It’s a chance for you to speak up and local public figures to provide some answers. The series, entitled “Newsmakers …” will also give residents a better understanding of what lies within each featured figurehead’s realm of responsibility — a civics lesson rolled into an interview, so to speak.

So, starting with Mayor Lucarelli, who has welcomed the chance to answer any queries of him you may have, ask away.

You may either leave your questions in the comments section below or email them to elaine.develde@patch.com.

All questions will be forwarded to the mayor; and, next week, his answers will be published.

Fire away, Fair Havenites!

Elizabeth, Thank you for your questions. 1. This is the reason why we have cross walks and crossing guards. 2. As an avid cyclist I am a proponent of Shararrows which are currently being installed on street is Red Bank, (they are two chevrons with a cyclist symbol) that indicate that cyclist have a priority. This question is timely in that we will be making an announcement at tonight's Council meeting. 3. Your point here brings up the conflict between government dictating taste and Constitutional private property rights. It is one reason why our Planning and Zoning Boards are barred from making decisions based on architectural design.

Joseph, Thank you for the reference. As you can see from my answer to Elizabeth's question # 2 above your concern is on our agenda.

Will it ever be a priority to repair the curbs on Ridge Foad betweet Cambridge Ave. and Hance Road? After all the imporvements to the downtown, it seems a shame that as you enter our town on Ridge Rd. the curbside is such a visual mess.

Congratulations on becoming Mayor of Fair Haven. Is there any way we can stop the County from putting up these huge black boxes at our intersections. They are blind spots for children riding bikes and someone is going to get hurt. Especially at Hance and River where the kids ride to school. They look terrible as well.

Mr. Mayor, Which section of FH River Rd is sheduled for the continuation of the streetscape project? I assumed all of River Road was going to get new sidewalks eventually.
