To the Maplewood Township Committee: I would like to be better informed regarding the re-development of the Post Office site and request that you pro-actively involve the community to promote understanding of the Plan. This will ensure that the overall results (building design, building use, benefit to commercial health of entire village and Township revenue impacts) have broad community support. I request that there be active participation by the community in the evaluation of design alternatives before a developer is selected. I request that multiple public meeting be held with the public developer as the design is refined so that it is fully understood before it is submitted for approval.

Engage Maplewood grew from a discussion among residents and merchants within Maplewood in late May, 2013. There was a sense from the discussion that citizens feel a common sense of pride and gratefulness for the opportunity to live here, yet also feel that building a common sense of cause in many civics matters often escapes us as a community. Engage Maplewood has formed in response and with the goal of improving the vibrancy and effectiveness of civic discourse in our community. At our first community meeting, many attendees saw the Post Office redevelopment as an excellent example of a civic topic that lacks a common sense of cause. As an initial activity we’ve chosen to seek increased understanding within the community as to the planned uses for the current post office site. Beyond this first activity, we hope to address the long-term by engaging the community in a discussion about civic discourse as it exists today. It seems that there is a wealth of information available, and it also seems there are a great many people that have an interest in participating. Yet at times shared understanding of some issues seems very hard to establish. We hope to help people stay better informed in a way that allows each person to become involved as issues of personal interest arise in the community.
