When you go to Centennial Field to cheer on the boys soccer team this afternoon (you are going to the Essex County Tournament quarterfinal, right?), take a good look at the landscape behind the north goal post–or rather the lack of landscape.
The hillside behind the field has been cleared to begin the next phase of Verona’s Hilltop recreation complex. The plans call for more playing fields and parking, and a road that will connect the existing Verona Community Center lot to White Rock Road, as the street that begins past the VCC is known. That should go a long way to alleviate the traffic jams that build up at the Linn Drive light after any sports event.
If you want to know more about what’s going to happen at the Hilltop, come to a special Town Council workshop on Tuesday, November 1 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held in the regular council chambers in Town Hall.
