This first round of approval was just step one as the mall will now have to return to the Zoning Board for major site plan approval.
The addition of a movie theater is now in Paramus Park Mall's future. The mall got unanimous approval Thursday night from the Paramus Zoning Board of Adjustment to use 88,000 square feet of previously approved expansion space for a movie theater and a restaurant. Three hours of testimony Thursday included discussion surrounding the requested height variance - 60 feet with an additional 5 feet of screening - over the required 36 feet as well as a variance for the 4,445 parking spaces proposed as opposed to the 5,039 required. The mall also sought relief from a previous condition that only 50 percent of the expansion space be used for non-retail. By approving the use, the percentage of the mall's non-retail use increases from 10 percent to …

Batteries Plus Bulbs offers more than 30,000 kinds of batteries and more than 10,000 kind of lightbulbs.
As federal regulations phase out incandescent lightbulbs over the next few years and new energy-efficient technologies to replace them continue to be developed, the market for lightbulbs can be confusing for consumers. Tom Davis and Batteries Plus Bulbs, located on Route 17 south in Paramus, aim to shed a light on the changing options and help people find what's best for them.

HUMC-Pascack Valley CEO Chad Melton wants the hospital to increase bed counts within the next few years, according to northjersey.com. Melton said he doesn't think Bergen competitors will "lose volume" as a result.
With Valley Hospital struggling to modernize its own facilities through a controversial expansion project, a major competitor announced it too has visions of expansion – and it's not even open for business yet. According to a Sunday report on northjersey.com, Hackensack University Medical Center at Pascack Valley is optimistic its new facility will drum up enough business to quickly expand. Pascack Valley Hospital declared bankrupcy in 2007 and has been dormant since. “If we truly have the volume here and the support we think, within the next three years we’ll be looking to add inpatient rooms,” Chad Melton, chief executive of the 128-bed hospital, told the news website. HUMC-Pascack Valley, scheduled to open June 1, is the first for-…

New digital marquee among upgrades planned at Cedar Lane movie house
The township's Planning Board recently approved a digital marquee at Teaneck's only movie theater, but the cinema's reopening could face a delay over missing paperwork, the theater's new operator said. Matthew Latten, who signed a lease for the shuttered Cedar Lane Cinemas in April, said existing plans for the space were missing, causing a slight delay in the start of renovations at the theater. "Yesterday is where I wanted to be three weeks ago," he said Thursday, explaining that crews had to draw up new plans. "We're getting close." The new Teaneck Cinemas is set to undergo extensive renovations, but much of the construction hasn't started yet, he added. "I know I was really hoping for a July 1 opening, but we might push back about a …
