Council adopts new regulations for owners of vacant properties
On Monday night, Township Council gave final approval to a measure that increases accountability on the part of owners of vacant homes in Cherry Hill and strengthens the Township’s ability to ensure those properties are kept secure and well-maintained. The ordinance, which requires owners of vacant homes to register them with the Township annually and designate a local point of contact who can receive and respond to property maintenance complaints, is one that will help protect and preserve the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Miss Atlantic County brings distracted-driving campaign to Cherry Hilldont text for briefing.jpg
Cherry Hill Township and the Cherry Hill Police Department are partnering with Lindsey Giannini, Miss Atlantic County 2013, to educate local residents on the dangers of texting and driving. Lindsey spoke about her "Stay Alive: Don't Text & Drive" campaign at the April 22 Town Council meeting, where she was presented with a special proclamation declaring the Township's support of the program. As part of the program, Lindsey has agreed to donate four large awareness signs that will be installed later this spring at Cherry Hill High Schools East and West, Camden Catholic High School, and Camden County College. Texting and driving is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents and related injuries in the United States - and the consequences can be devastating. Council and I are proud to bring this important message to the residents of Cherry Hill. For more on Lindsey's campaign and the Township's participation, click here

Friendship Grove is blooming at the Cherry Hill Public LibraryFriendship Grove for 4-26 briefing.jpeg
When the Cherry Hill Library dedicated its Friendship Grove on a brisk day back in December, Library staff and visitors could only dream of spring! But now that spring has finally arrived, the cherry trees are in bloom and the warm weather invites people to walk the Grove’s path, or sit on a bench to read or relax. 
The Friends of the Library made the initial contribution to establish Friendship Grove; but it's not too late to contribute to this wonderful cause. A great way to donate is by purchasing a brick, which will have a permanent home in the Grove. Bricks are $75 each and make great gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations or to remember someone special. Click here to order your brick online, or call Katie Hardesty at (856) 903-1207 to receive an order form. Trees and benches are also available for naming. The next time you visit the Library, be sure to take a walk through Friendship Grove. It’s a beautiful place to “Relax, Reflect and Restore.”
