2018 The year in re­view

Newark Post - - FRONT PAGE -

The year 2018 saw con­clu­sions to sev­eral long-dis­cussed is­sues, with the pas­sage of the cap­i­tal ref­er­en­dum, the open­ing of the STAR Tower and the for­ma­tion of the new Ne­wark Part­ner­ship.

Mean­while, new chal­lenges emerged, in­clud­ing the Uni­ver­sity of Delaware’s abrupt de­ci­sion to close the Chris­tiana Tow­ers, con­cern about the rep­u­ta­tion of the Christina School District and a num­ber of al­ready-con­tro­ver­sial plans for de­vel­op­ment projects.

Along the way, Ne­wark­ers said good­bye to sev­eral long­time busi­nesses; wel­comed new mem­bers of city coun­cil, the school board and the state leg­is­la­ture; and watched with joy as Pre­ston’s Play­ground opened at the Ne­wark Reser­voir.

Our Year in Re­view cov­er­age can be found on pages 6 through 11, with our list of 2018’s big­gest sto­ries be­gin­ning on page 8.

Check back next week as we fore­cast the sto­ries to watch in 2019.
