East Norwich Considers Incorporation
As a result of the forum on incorporation hosted by the East Norwich Civic Association on Wedneday, Nov. 19 at the Community United Methodist Church of East Norwich, at the Jan. 22 meeting, the group will set up committees to look into the questions that need answers: the pros and cons of incorporation. ENCA President Matthew Meng opened the well attended forum by saying Nov. 19, 2003 was a major milestone for the ENCA, its 40th anniversary. "It was started in 1963 to stop the construction of a cloverleaf at the intersection of Route 106 and Northern Boulevard." It fought to preserve the quality of life here, he added.
