Dr. Ellen Clémot, Senior Pastor at the church. “One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to three worthy non-profit organizations. From start to finish, this is a charitable mission endeavor and we are grateful to play a small part in it. We appreciate the community’s support in purchasing pumpkins from us and helping those in need.”

CHATHAM, NJ — Chatham Township has been awarded $375K in state funds from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) as part of the Local Aid Infrastructure Fund.
The Chatham Township Pedestrian Safety and ADA Improvement Project aims to improve pedestrian safety by upgrading existing crosswalks. The grant will allow the township to continue work on the remaining crosswalks that are not already funded as part of a larger project.
"Safety and accessibility remain top priorities for Chatham Township. This Project demonstrates our continued commitment to ensuring that our streets and sidewalks are safe and accessible for everyone," Mayor Ashley Felice said.
The grant money was approved for 13 crosswalks on Fairmount Avenue between Runnymede Road and Nicholson Drive.
Additionally, two crosswalk upgrades are planned for the intersection of Mountainview Road and Meyersville Road, as well as two more for crossing River Road—one at each intersection with Henry Drive and Mountainside Drive.
Fairmount Avenue, Meyersville Road, and River Road are major thoroughfares in the township and see heavy traffic.
The project's main efforts include upgrading the crosswalk curb ramps to meet ADA standards, installing detectable warning surfaces, associated turning space, restriping of crosswalks, installing new concrete curbs, and restoring surrounding road, sidewalk and lawn areas.
"We are targeting completion of this project before Chatham Schools re-open in September. I commend our staff on their efforts to seek out grant funds to offset the rising costs of infrastructure improvements and minimizing the burden on taxpayers," Felice said.
Last year, township officials also announced that new safety improvements to a section of Shunpike Road will be added soon to help all Chatham Township school-aged children safely walk from the Lafayette and Washington Avenue Elementary schools.
That project is being funded by the New Jersey Safe Routes to School program, a federally funded reimbursement program that aims to enable and encourage children to walk and bike to school.
Construction work will be done during the day and will be done one block at a time, east to west. All roadways are also expected to remain open, and no road detours are currently planned.
The anticipated project timeline calls for construction likely to begin during the summer when school is not in session.

CHATHAM, NJ — Earlier this year, a long-standing building in Chatham Township was torn down as part of a new housing construction project approved by the township committee two years ago.
The sale of 522 Southern Boulevard, also known as Charlie Brown's property, was agreed upon by Chatham Township and the property owner, Kronos Holdings, LLC, in 2021.
What was previously the restaurant site will soon be transformed into affordable housing units as part of the township's third-round element of affordable housing, which it agreed to in December 2018 in litigation with the Fair Share Housing Center.
This week, it was announced that Walters, an award-winning developer based in Barnegat, has broken ground on that project, now dubbed "Cornerstone at Chatham," a 63-unit premium income-restricted apartment community.
Walters currently projects the new development to be ready for occupancy beginning in late spring 2024, however, completion of the entire property is slated for the fourth quarter of 2024.
“Residents will enjoy modern features and amenities while living in the historic and quaint small town of Chatham,” said Joseph Del Duca, partner and director of Affordable Housing for Walters.
Because there is limited developable land in Chatham, the three-building community is being built on a 3.2-acre site that was previously occupied by Charlie Brown's Fresh Grill.
Due to its central location, future residents will have easy access to jobs, shopping, and recreational amenities. Chatham Mall and Hickory Square Shopping Center are both within walking distance, as are the municipally owned Nash Park and Shunpike Field.
The housing project is being built thanks to a unique funding partnership between Walters and Chatham Township. As a result, Walters received an extremely competitive 9 percent Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC).
According to Del Duca, the town provided the land as well as funding support, including a planned shuttle bus service to the nearby NJ Transit rail station.
The three-building community will feature a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units ranging in size from 807 to 1,343 square feet. Parking will also be available for residents.
Cornerstone at Chatham is being built to meet green building certification, allowing residents to benefit from sustainable, efficient, and resilient housing. There will also be a fitness center, a community room, and an outdoor patio and clubhouse with seating, tables, and gas grills.
On request, a social services coordinator will be on hand, Walters representatives said.
The future apartments will be available to people earning 60 percent or less of the area's median income, officials said.
Another redevelopment project, which will add 245 new homes to the Chatham community, also recently broke ground.
The site plan, now dubbed "The Ivy of Chatham," was initially approved by the borough in 2021 and has been marketed as a luxury apartment complex with a mixture of 37 affordable housing units.

“All of the towns (and quaint cities) on this list have something special,” writes author Rose Marie Walano.
The article rates Chatham No. 8 in its Top 10 and says it "makes you feel like you've stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting. Its lantern-lined Main Street is charming, to say the least.
I wonder what Country Living would say if they knew the Zoning Board was seriously considering the approval of a convenience store - possibly open 24/7 right in the middle of the Downtown Historic District of our sweet small town. I think they’d be disappointed and I think there’s a lot of us that will be disappointed if the variance and plans are approved.
The location of this convenience store would be within the Exxon station which is situated on the corner of Main Street and Hillside Avenue. This location is at a very busy and congested intersection with a convoluted four-way traffic pattern and traffic lights. And in my opinion, the increase in traffic that the convenience store generates would be dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles alike.
Let’s resist the “progressive” approach that many of our New Jersey towns are embracing at present and keep our beautiful small town as close to “sweet” as we possibly can.
Mark your calendars and plan to be present at the following meetings at Borough Hall, 54 Fairmount Avenue.
Zoning Board meeting on August 23.
Historical Preservation Commission meeting on September 19.
Zoning Board meeting on September 27 (Final Remarks before Decision).
Voice your concerns and share your thoughts.
And…if you feel as I do, just say NO to giving our sweet small Chatham town that big urban feeling.

CHATHAM, NJ — The Chatham Township Food Truck and Music Festival, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, has been canceled.
The event organizers announced the cancelation of the event this week, as forecasters are predicting stormy weather across New Jersey.
Meteorologists have predicted a dreary day around New Jersey on Saturday, with an approaching cold front knocking down temperatures and bringing showers, possibly with lightning and a few thunderstorms.
Tropical Storm Philippe could add moisture to the bands of heavy downpours predicted across parts of the Garden State, according to AccuWeather forecasters.
“By far, the most far-reaching impact from Philippe will be its drenching rainfall,” said AccuWeather on Friday.
The festival was meant to be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Colony Pool Club, located at 55 School Avenue, Chatham, and served as a benefit for Chatham Township PBA 170.
In general, this weekend is not expected to be a "washout," forecasters said on social media. But most residents can expect rain at some point.
Here is the weekend forecast:
Friday: A chance of showers. Cloudy, with a high near 72. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. The chance of precipitation is 40 percent. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch are possible.
Friday Night: Showers. Patchy fog after 11 p.m. Low around 62. Southeast wind around 5 mph. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent. New precipitation amounts to between a quarter and half of an inch.
Saturday: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm, mainly before 5 p.m., then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 5 p.m. High near 69. South wind 5 to 15 mph becoming northwest in the morning. The chance of precipitation is 90 percent. New rainfall amounts to between a quarter and half of an inch.
Saturday Night: A chance of showers, mainly before 11 p.m. Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly clear, with a low around 48. Northwest wind around 15 mph. The chance of precipitation is 30 percent. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 59. West wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.
