Zoning Board, Mayor and Council, Dancing, Art and More This Week
There are plenty of things going on in Fort Lee this week; here’s a look at just some of them.
Below is a quick look at five things you should know about and might not want to miss this week:
The Fort Lee Zoning Board meets Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Borough Hall’s Council Chambers. Click here to download the agenda.
The Fort Lee Mayor and Council meet Thursday for an executive session in Borough Hall’s executive conference room 201. Although the borough issued a notice on its website that the meeting will begin at 6 p.m. instead of the usual 7 p.m., an immediate motion for closed session is expected, and the meeting won’t reopen to the public until at least the usual 8 p.m.
The meeting agenda will be available for download on the borough’s website later in the week and in hard copy at Borough Hall by 2 p.m. Wednesday.
The latest edition of Fort Lee’s ongoing “Dancing Under the Stars” program is Friday at 7 p.m. at the Fort Lee Community Center. The theme this week is “Cha Cha/Rhumba Night,” and it is the second-to-last chance for residents to participate (the final installment is Aug. 26).
Each session includes dance demonstrations and lessons from Dance With Me Studios, followed by open dance time with a DJ.
Also at the community center, Fort Lee's annual Movies and Music Under the Stars continues Saturday when the music will be provided by Joey Arminio and the Family Broadway Extravaganza, and the movie will be Iron Man (2008) starring Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The weekly event takes place Saturday evenings/nights through Labor Day weekend.
Music is from 7 to 8:30 p.m., and the movies start at sunset. Programs will take place indoors in the event of rain.
And art lovers should check out two exhibits currently on view at the Fort Lee Public Library.
In the library’s lower-level Atrium Gallery is the Second Annual Exhibit of the Students of Florence Katz from the Richard A. Nest Senior Center, in which the work of 16 artists is on display with a range of styles and subject matter.
And on the library’s first floor, the Lobby Showcase features the sculpture of Tendekayi Tigere from Zimbabwe.
“Tigere draws on the themes of daily life, and his works are primarily in hard stones, such as leopard rock and verdite stone,” according to information on the library’s website.
Both exhibits are on view throughout the August.
