Sewer main replacement scheduled Monday, Tuesday, on Greentree Road
On Monday, Nov. 19, and Tuesday, Nov. 20, the Township Engineering Department will begin a sewer main replacement project on Greentree Road between Greentree Way and Green Acre Drive North.

Crews will be on site from approximately 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Delays are expected. Drivers should plan their commutes accordingly, and seek alternate routes if possible. For more information, please contact the Engineering Department at (856) 424-3203.

Cherry Hill considers smoking ban on Township-owned land
This week, I announced a policy change that I believe will smokeout.jpgultimately make public buildings, parks, playgrounds and other outdoor space in Cherry Hill healthier for every member of our community to enjoy. An ordinance currently being considered by Town Council would ban smoking on all Township-owned property, including the Municipal Complex, the Cherry Hill Library, and all of the Township's parks and playgrounds. It will eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke, improve air quality, minimize litter, and reduce maintenance costs.
If adopted by Council, the new law would impose fines on individuals who are caught breaking the law and smoking in one of these new "smoke-free" zones. Enforcement would begin in earnest in early 2013. For more information, click here.   

Township hosts food drive for Hurricane victims through Dec. 1
Cherry Hill Township is collecting food through Dec. 1 to benefit New Jerseyans affected by Hurricane Sandy, as well local families in need during the holiday season. Collection boxes are located in the lobby of the Township Municipal Building at 820 Mercer St., as well as several other locations around town. All food will be delivered to the Food Bank of South Jersey. For a complete list of collection sites and needed items, click here. For more information, call my office at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.

Celebrate the troops at a special Thanksgiving Day event in Cherry Hill
This Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, the Jewish War Veterans Post 126 will host the 9th annual Jeremy Kane Feed the Troops Thanksgiving Celebration at the Palace of Asia Ballroom (adjacent to the America’s Best Inn) on Route 70 West. At 11 a.m., 300 troops currently training at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst will arrive to a well-deserved, patriotic, surprise greeting from local veterans, residents, school children and special guests gathered outside the ballroom. The troops’ training schedule prohibits them from traveling home to visit family during the holidays. These men and women do so much for our country every day of the year; the least we can do is give them warmth and a few comforts of home as we enter the holiday season. I hope you’ll all join us. For more information, click here.

If you are looking for a way to start your day off on the right foot, join us this coming Wednesday, Nov. 21, for our next "Walk with the Mayor" at the Cherry Hill Mall. Part of my Mayor's Wellness Campaign, our walks begin at 8 a.m. on the third Wednesday of every month. I, members of my staff, and other members of the community come out to enjoy water, healthy snacks, and a 2-mile walk around the Mall's interior. In all, the walk lasts about 30 to 45 minutes, and is a lot of fun. Please bring your friends, family, even your children, and get healthy with Cherry Hill Township!

The Friends of Barclay Farmstead will once again host their annual Holiday House celebration, through Sunday, Nov. 18, at the historic Farmstead. Holiday House will bring back memories of those early days when the warmth and cheer of the hearth could dispel the cold winter winds outside.

Township offers guidelines for storm-debris clean-up
Remember that yard-waste cleaned up following Hurricane Sandy can be collected as part of your regular curbside trash pickup each week. Branches and other debris must be cut into pieces less than four feet in length and under 50 pounds. The bundling requirement that is typically enforced has been relaxed for post-storm cleanup. If your yard waste has been placed curbside but does not fit these requirements, please call the  Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422 to make arrangements for pickup. You may also discard of yard waste at the Ecology Center on Kresson Road, between Hartwood and Springdale. Contact DPW before dropping yard-waste at the Ecology Center.
