WINTER WEATHER ALERT: Township prepared for significant snow accumulation through Tuesday

Township prepares for winter storm, heavy snowfall through Tuesday afternoon
Cherry Hill is preparing for the first major snow event of 2015, and a winter storm warning is currently in effect for our area through 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27.

The latest forecast calls for as much as a foot of snow in our area through midday Tuesday. Light snow and flurries are expected to begin during the day Monday, with the most significant impact beginning late in the day Monday and through midday Tuesday. Hazardous road conditions are expected, and blizzard conditions are possible.

  • The Department of Public Works has been preparing for this storm throughout the weekend, and will continue to monitor conditions as the storm progresses. All personnel will report for duty early Monday morning, and will continue working around the clock to treat and clear all 260 miles of municipal roads as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • To help expedite snow-removal efforts, the Office of Emergency Management reminds residents that all parked vehicles should be kept out of the roadway, and all objects – including trash and recycling bins and basketball nets – should be moved out of the street. This will allow for faster and safer clearing of roads and better access for emergency responders.
  • When conditions deteriorate, we ask that drivers avoid any unnecessary travel, to allow plows and emergency responders to operate safely and effectively. If driving is unavoidable, please be conscious of road crews. Stay clear of plows, and allow ample space between yourself and other vehicles on the road. Please drive slowly and carefully and allow extra time to reach your destination.
  • Please check on elderly and disabled friends, neighbors and family members who live alone, to ensure their safety in the coming days. For specific questions or concerns within Cherry Hill, please contact Emergency Management Coordinator Kevin Seta at (856) 432-8836, or e-mail
  • As always, please call 9-1-1 to report an emergency. For non-emergency assistance, call Cherry Hill Police at (856) 665-1200.

Residents: Sign up now for the CodeRED emergency-notification system

While we’re pleased to have a new notification tool at our disposal, the system is only as good as our subscriber base.

The system is open to both residents and businesses – and each person in your household should register individually with their address and cell-phone number. Click here to learn more! []

Township, Cherry Hill schools partner on Martin Luther King Day project

Town Hall will be closed on Monday in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. But while our offices will be closed, more than 100 local volunteers have signed up in support of the Township’s first-ever Martin Luther King Day of Service. These wonderful men, women, children and teens will be at Cherry Hill High School West at 10 a.m. Monday to help sort and deliver items we’ve collected for five local charities. And roughly 3 dozen others are signed up to help with trail maintenance and other open-space preservation projects at historic Croft Farm. This is the first year that the Township has hosted an organized MLK Day activity, and I’m in awe of the response that we’ve seen. If you’re still interested in doing your part for Monday’s Day of Service, it’s not too late:

Walk-in donations will be accepted at Cherry Hill High School West (2101 Chapel Ave.) from 10-11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 19. Click here for a list of charities and needed items.

You can still volunteer for our open-space projects at Croft Farm, with the Cherry Hill Environmental Board, the Cherry Hill Trail Crew, and Sustainable Cherry Hill. Activities will begin at 10 a.m.

Other community observances to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream will be alive with music at 8 p.m. tonight at Congregation M'kor Shalom, as the 12th annual Unity Choir MLK Celebration takes place at the synagogue's Shabbat service in celebration of the life and work of Dr. King. The event will feature 80+ singers from the M'kor Shalom choir and around New Jersey. Musical selections will range from high-spirited Gospel music, to stimulating songs of freedom and uplifting Jewish folk music. The service is free and open to the community.
