Charley's Aunt Restaurant intends to expand into the currently vacant lot adjacent to the current location.

CHATHAM, NJ — Charley's Aunt, a neighborhood favorite, may be getting a makeover.

This week, the Chatham Borough Planned Board unanimously approved the request for the business located at 8-10 S Passaic Avenue to proceed with the presented expansion plan.

The applicant's attorney, Michael Miller, presented the proposal to the board, asking for two variances: one to allow the addition of a second sign to the property and the other to permit the new sign to protrude from the building's front.

According to the applicant, the restaurant's proposed expansion includes tearing out the existing restrooms and moving two new restrooms into the new area, one of which will be handicapped accessible, as well as adding another 20 seats.

Although the new space will be a part of the existing building, the intention is to add more windows with shutters so that they can help divide the space as needed. "We can use it to have it open for the whole restaurant, but if we have a private party, such as a Christmas parties, bridal shower, baby showers, that kind of stuff. At that point we could close the shutters and reserve it for a private function," said Kenneth Decker, the president of Charley's Aunt.

The additional signage, which raised some questions from the board, would not only be used for cosmetic reasons, according to Decker. "We're hoping to get some exposure from Main Street, that being, from people walking across South Passaic either way or on the other side. Being able to look down South Passaic and see the sign so they know where Charley's Aunt is."

Due to their easy ability to become projectiles during the period of high wind, board members expressed concern that the protruding sign could pose a future safety risk.

The borough's zoning code only permits signs with a maximum projected size of four square feet, so the proposed sign's approximate twelve square foot size would be in excess of that limit. Additionally, according to the code, the sign must be placed on the first floor; however, Charley's Aunt intends to place its sign at a height of 18 feet.

The board also voiced concerns about the sidewalk outside the restaurant's accessibility. Board Chair Susan Favate claims that the restaurant has obstructed the sidewalk, making it difficult to walk. The restaurant currently offers outdoor dining as a result of the state allowances during Covid-19.

"I applaud the handicapped restrooms, but currently it's not handicapped accessible in front of your building because of all the chairs and tables and fences and TVs have gone up and been in place," Favate said.

Following more than an hour of testimony, the board approved the application with the understanding that the outdoor dining area would be "less congested" and "more accessible."

$2M Bond Requested For Chatham Township Affordable Housing Project

The bond ordinance would be introduced at the Nov. 29 township committee meeting and adopted at the Dec. 13 meeting.

CHATHAM, NJ — Chatham Township Committee members recently announced plans to introduce a $2 million bond ordinance to fund the construction of affordable housing units on the site of the former Charlie Brown's Restaurant.

Ziad Shehady, the administrator of Chatham Township, explained that the $2 million bond is needed for the Walters Group Apartments to start construction in March at the public workshop session held this week.

The new residential development, which is planned for 522 Southern Boulevard in Chatham Township, will have 63 affordable housing units spread across three buildings, with a two-story building facing Southern Boulevard and two three-story buildings behind it.

According to Shehady, as part of the townships' contract with the Walters Group, a $2 million loan is a requirement. "We are preparing for the need to finance that pretty soon. They are likely going to be having shovel in the ground around March."

The bond ordinance is anticipated to be presented at the township committee meeting on Nov. 29 and adopted by the committee with four votes on Dec. 13's meeting.

"We have to amend our spending plan, because this $2 million was not envisioned in the spending plan and the idea that the developers trust fund is going to be able to sustain this is questionable. The revenues have not been matching the targets that were in the original spending plan and they are likely going to decrease" Shehady said.

Mark Lois, a committee member, put forth the request that the finance committee review the budget to determine whether any unused funds could be used in place of the bond, which Shehady addressed.

"I'm not sure what it is you want to look at. We have a $2 million loan that we need to make and we don't have the money and the affordable housing trust fund is going to be the primary source of it to the extent that it can be. Other than that, we have to provide $2 million by March," Shehady said.

Debra King, chief financial officer for the township, assured Lois that the bond would be a short-term loan that would be paid off in the next two to five years.

Lois then proposed that the loan be paid for with unused funds from capital ordinances and previous capital surplus, as well as a previous bond premium in the amount of $346,000, rather than a new bond.

In response, King argued that all those funds would be used in next year's capital budget. "To exhaust them all on something where we have another avenue to take would be financially not responsible because then we're going to exhaust our means of financing what we currently have out there on the table."

The bond ordinance is expected to be discussed further at the next township committee meeting, which is scheduled for Nov. 29.

The Pumpkin Patch is a community effort that involved more than 100 adult and youth volunteers during October. We also would like to thank the Chatham High School Key Club and cheerleading squad who helped unload over 3,000 pumpkins and gourds from the truck to the church lawn.

We are deeply grateful to the Chatham community for supporting this service project and fundraising initiative in a variety of ways. Thank you for partnering with us to provide food and hope to those who are most vulnerable.

CHATHAM TOWNSHIP, NJ – [July 19, 2022] – 8.05 miles of newly paved road is coming to Chatham Township this year. In a meeting last week, The Chatham Township Committee fully authorized the 2022 municipal road improvement projects. Resolutions passed awarded the 2022 contracts, marking the final step in local authorization to pave the municipal roads.

There are approximately 48 miles of road in Chatham Township. In total, the 8.05 miles of newly paved roads represent 17% of the total road surface. A portion of roads to be repaved in 2022 are county roads, and that work will be scheduled by Morris County, with the southernmost stretch on River Road already complete. The majority of the municipal road construction is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, July 20, 2022.

“The 2022 Township Committee is focused on improving all aspects of our Township infrastructure without increasing the municipal tax rate. More than 8 miles of new road paving is direct evidence of our approach.” - Mayor Ashley Felice

The paving process begins with road milling, followed by paving, and the schedule is weather dependent. Impacted residents have been issued a notice of anticipated start dates. On milling and paving days, all vehicles must be removed from the road. Residents have access to their driveways during road milling, though there will be temporary delays while the road in front of their driveway is milled.

Residents who need to use their vehicle during the paving dates must park elsewhere before 7:00 A.M. and walk to their car. Please keep in mind that until authorized personnel removes the cones at the road's end, the newly paved road will be impassable. Weather and other unforeseen construction issues may cause changes to the project schedule.

Larry McCann, the pool manager at Colony Pool, will take over as full-time recreation director for Chatham Township after Labor Day

CHATHAM, NJ -- The way Larry McCann sees it, he's been piling up the experience for his new job as Chatham Township Recreation Director since he was a teenager.

"My first job as a 14-year-old was organizing, coaching and refereeing an urban basketball league with Mike Dunleavy Sr.," McCann said. "Mike went on to play in the NBA, coached the LA Lakers and became the general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers.

"He asked me one day, do you want to help me out with this league and I said absolutely. It's funny, everything I've done from that day forward has been about recreation."

Professionally, McCann has been CPA with a Master's in Finance, while keeping his sports ties as a basketball travel team coach for St. Pat's and Corpus Christi. He also refereed travel league games for years after his coaching ended.

The Brooklyn native has been a resident of Chatham for 32 years and all three of his daughters - Tara, Caroline and Jen - played sports offered through the recreation program.

"My kids all had great experiences through the recreation program and some of their best friends today are the ones they grew up playing sports with," McCann said. "I'm looking forward to giving back to Chatham what my kids got here."

McCann will be the first Chatham Township Recreation Director in more than seven years. He will be paid a salary of $79,500.

Chatham Borough Rec Director Carol Nauta has served as the program director for both towns since 2016. The Chatham Township Committee voted, 3-2, in May to return to the separate rec director setup.

"I've known Carol Nauta for years and when it comes to the kids, I don't think there is a borough and township," McCann said. "Carol Nauta has been doing schedules for years and years. From my perspective, there will not be two sets of schedules. There can't be.

"It really is a clean slate. I'll be working with the Joint Rec Advisory Committee and Carol and working with the heads of the club sports. I look at myself as a facilitator. The one big thing I'd like to do is to be out there when the games are being played. I love going to games. I'll talk to the parents and find out what their needs are.

"We have great recreation programs here. I look at it as a perfect opportunity for me - a combination of my business background and my recreation experience - to be able to give back to Chatham. I want to work with the parents and the kids to learn what we can do better with the existing programs or find out if there are programs we can create."

McCann teamed up with parents Andy Gyves and Mark Howard Johnson to start what is now the successful Chatham High girls golf program.

"I grew up in Brooklyn and everything was spontaneous," McCann said. "You'd walk out your front door and there would be a basketball, baseball or football game to play. Maybe there is a concept of an organized pickup game. We do a great job with organized sports, but what about that time between the organized games? Maybe we can fill in those gaps."

McCann is closing out his first season as the pool manager of the Colony Pool and will concentrate on his recreation duties once the pool closes.
