It has been relatively quiet in the Westgate neighborhood area. There have been a few complaints about noise and loud stereos but overall there has not been a lot of criminal activity reported. Alpine Township has passed a noise ordinance at the September 21, 2009 meeting and hopefully it will contribute to keeping Westgate a peaceful community. There have also been a few complaints about teenagers openly purchasing and smoking marijuana in Westgate Park. Neighbor complaints recently resulted in the arrest of several teenagers. It means Neighborhood Watch is working! Westgate has been a safe park for our children and grandchildren and it should continue to be such.
The noise ordinance takes effect 4 weeks after publication. A copy of the ordinance can be found here.
