Westwood Mayor Ray Arroyo
05/14/2020

Westwood Mayor Ray Arroyo

The Governor has announced that starting at 6am Monday morning, all nonessential construction can restart and nonessential retail is permitted to offer curbside pickup. For Westwood especially, this is critical. We are setting aside designated pickup spots in anticipation that in-store retail shopping will open next and vendors will need mid-block spots for those longer-term shoppers.

Westwood has long been the Hub of the Pascack Valley. From the earliest inns and shops that lined Broadway, to the rapid proliferation of the area's first department store and major car dealerships during the mid-19th century, to a deliberate bucking of the trend toward strip malls and big box retail with keen planning and zoning decision in the 80s-90s, to significant redevelopment of Pascack Valley Medical Center and blocks on the outskirts of the central business district over the past decade, Westwood has stayed ahead of the curve and has been proud of its significance as a regional retail, dining, entertainment, and healthcare destination.

Now, faced with new challenges that COVID-19 lays before us, we are working hard to ensure Westwood retains its vibrant business core that is in many ways the hallmark of our community. Many of our merchants are, themselves, Westwood residents who are emotionally and socially invested in the wellbeing of their employees and customers.

Know this: Westwood will continue to be a safe space for commerce.

Strong recommendations have come out of the newly formed Mayor's Economic Recovery Group for consideration by the governing body or appropriate board for expedient implementation:

* Dedicated parking spaces for restaurant and retail curbside pickup
* Expanded seating areas for outdoor dining
* Increased DPW sanitation protocols in the central business district
* Health Department programs to assist businesses in adapting to new guidelines and regulations as they become available including an optional seal of safety program to designate businesses that exceed standard employee and customer safety guidelines issued by CDC, DOH, or the Governor’s Executive Order.

Certainly, there are many things that businesses must take into their own hands as we await relaxation on the stay-at-home orders from the Governor - masks, social distancing, and basic hygiene protocols - but rest assured the Borough is also working diligently to execute on our role in creating a town-wide environment in which the businesses of Westwood can thrive.
