Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.

Cherry Hill welcomes Lourdes, Zinburger to the local
Lourdes for Briefing.jpg business community
This week was an extraordinarily exciting one for Cherry Hill, as we welcomed two new faces to our local business community. On Tuesday, I was proud to attend the grand opening celebrations for Zinburger, a gourmet wine-and-burger restaurant at Garden State Park, and LourdesCare at Cherry Hill, Lourdes Health System’s new state-of-the-art outpatient care facility located at Brace Road and Route 70, right in the heart of town.
Lourdes is a particularly remarkable story. Situated on the former National Wholesale Liquidators site at the Ellisburg Circle, Lourdes has totally reinvented, revitalized and reinvigorated a tract of land that sat vacant for five years, and that has been underutilized and underperforming for decades. It took just 10 months to move from Planning Board approvals to ribbon-cutting – remarkable by even the most ambitious of timelines, and by the endZin for Briefing.jpg of this month, the 54,000-square-foot facility will be serving patients within dozens of Lourdes’ wellness programs and specialties, including its renowned cardiac care program.
Dozens of new businesses have moved to Cherry Hill since I took office last January, and dozens more have reinvested and grown within our community – creating jobs, building a stable tax base, and sending a message that Cherry Hill is open for business. These new additions simply reinforce my belief that Cherry Hill’s economy is alive, vibrant and thriving, and I am proud to welcome them both into our community.

Remember to turn the clocks ahead one hour this Sunday
Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday in the United States, so don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night. While we might lose an hour of sleep, the change mean longer days – and spring – are just around the corner. And remember, these time changes are a great opportunity to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors to make sure they are in working condition.
