Cherry Hill Township

Mayor, Council honor Mayor's Cup Champion CHYAA White Sox 
CHYAA White Sox for BriefingCongratulations to the CHYAA White Sox, winners of the Cherry Hill Mayor's Cup for 2015! The White Sox took home the Mayor's Cup trophy on June 18, when they beat the Tigers of Atlantic Little League, 4-1, returning the title to CHYAA for a second consecutive year. Council and I were joined by the 11-member team and its coaches at Monday night's Council meeting, where we presented them with a special proclamation honoring their latest achievement. Read more about the Mayor's Cup championship game in the Cherry Hill Sun. Click here for additional photos of Monday's presentation.

Phase II of Old Orchard Road project expected to begin Monday
The second phase of an ongoing project to reconstruct Old Orchard Road is expected to begin this Monday, June 20. Funded by Municipal Aid grants from the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the project includes a mill and overlay of the road surface from Highgate Lane to Evans Lane, as well as isolated curb and sidewalk repairs. This is the second of at least four phases of work to be completed. Since 2012, the Township has been awarded nearly $800,000 in grant funding to complete the necessary repairs up to Rabbit Run. Click here for more information. 

Cherry Hill awarded grants for tennis court, park projects Tennis Courts
This week, my office received notification that the Township has been awarded a total of $50,000 in grant funding for two projects, through the Camden County Open Space Preservation Trust Fund. Two awards of $25,000 each will help finance an ongoing project to upgrade and expand the Locustwood/Cherry Hill West Tennis Courts, and planned enhancements at Lions Den Park. The West Tennis Court project, which is slated for completion late this summer or early fall, is a joint project with the Cherry Hill Board of Education to expand the facility to five U.S. Tennis Association-regulation courts, enabling the high school to host regional tournaments, and creating a first-rate facility for the public to enjoy, as well. The Lions Den project includes the installation of a Pickleball Court, as well as a new ADA-accessible entryway and upgrades to existing equipment and fencing. These are just a few of the investments we are making to public recreational facilities across town, and I look forward to sharing more information as these projects move forward.

The Township's free summer concert series, Music Under the Stars, will return for a third week at 6 p.m. this Tuesday, July 21, at historic Barclay Farmstead.

I, along with Cherry Hill Police Chief Bud Monaghan, our Township Recreation Department, and the entire CHPD, are very eager and excited to kick-off the Township's first-ever Junior Police Academy this Monday, July 20. The 30 cadets enrolled in this year's program attended orientation sessions earlier this week, meeting with Chief Monaghan and the officers who will directly oversee the variety of activities scheduled throughout the course of the program.

We look forward to sharing frequent updates and photos throughout the week on the Township and Police Department social media pages.
