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.

Woodcrest Country Club should be preserved as Open SpaceWCC presser 4.3.13.jpg
On Wednesday, members of Council and I announced that the Township hopes to participate in the upcoming auction to purchase the bankrupt Woodcrest Country Club. This 155-acre parcel of undeveloped land is an important piece of our community and should be preserved in perpetuity as open space. The Township has reached out to the Camden County Board of Freeholders requesting their assistance in helping to secure the funds needed to put forth a competitive bid for the property. Regardless of whether we emerge as the winning bidder, Council and I want to stress the fact that we do not, and will not, support a change in zoning from the property's current institutional designation. Read all about Wednesday's announcement, including the full text of a letter sent to Woodcrest and adjacent neighborhoods this week, by clicking here.
