CherryHill Township Winter 2019 Community Magazine

2 856-665-6500 820 Mercer Street, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002 Welcome to the winter edition of the Cherry Hill Township Community Magazine! Each and every day there are so many great things happen- ing within our community. This magazine will keep you up to date on Township news, up- coming events, programs, and classes, and important information from all our departments. This time of year time, we reflect upon our gratitude and look ahead to a new year filled with many opportunities. I know that I feel especially grateful this time of year to live in Cherry Hill – a place full of caring, hardworking and honest citizens who enrich our quality of life just by being a part of our community. I encourage you to spend time with your family, friends, and neighbors at some of our upcoming community events. As you’ll see throughout this magazine, there are programs and events for everyone - no matter your age, ability, or interest! Here in Town Hall, Council and I are looking forward to another great year together in Cherry Hill. In 2019, there is much to celebrate – our economy is vibrant, investment is high, and employment is strong. Cherry Hill continues to be a place where families and businesses choose to thrive. Council and I are committed to investing in services that improve the quality of life for our residents and make our town such a great place to live. I am proud that we have not raised municipal taxes in seven years, while continuing to deliver strong services and build our local economy. I am proud that we continue to heavily invest in our open space, our parks and playgrounds, and our neighborhoods. I am also proud of the fact that new residents and young families continue to move into our community, while our seniors are reinvesting and exploring the services and amenities that make this a great place to retire, as well. We will continue to work to protect the integrity of our neigh- borhoods and property values, continue to invest in our Public Safety and Police Department, proactively address our aging roads and recreational facilities, seek grant dollars that will help us stretch our budget and resources, and work with our partners at the County, State and Cherry Hill Schools to improve every facet of our community. If you have a question or concern, never hesitate to reach out. You can e-mail me directly at MayorCahn@chtownship. com, or call my office at (856) 488-7878. I wish you and your families a joyous holiday season and a very happy, healthy New Year!
