Anyone with questions about the proposed rezoning of Dixiedale Farms to allow townhouses is invited to a 'Coffee with a Committeeman' to discuss the issue on Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Fairmount Country Store.
Committeeman Michael Kelly will be at the Fairmount Country Store at 10 a.m., and will stay until noon or as long as anyone has questions. The informal conversation will be limited to approximately a half-dozen participants. Email Mr Kelly at to reserve your space. If interest warrants, a second conversation will be scheduled
for Sunday, Dec. 10, at the same time and location.
For additional information, the Township Committee has posted a list of frequently asked questions about affordable housing on its website: chathamtownship-nj.gov.
The 30-acre Dixiedale Farms is located between Hillside Avenue and River Road, across from the Chatham Glen townhouses. The property is zoned for approximately 17 single-family homes. The developer, Sterling/Sun Homes, has asked the township to rezone the property to allow 54 luxury townhomes. A formal public hearing will be held on Thursday, Dec. 14, at 7:30 p.m.
before the Township Committee considers final adoption of the rezoning ordinance.
The Chatham Emergency Squad (CES) will again host a blood drive on Saturday, December 2 at the Chatham Emergency Squad at 31 N. Passaic Avenue in Chatham. The hours of donation will be from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. We invite the community to stop by and support the blood drive with a donation. There is a constant scarcity of blood. Less than 5% of the population donates. Please try to donate on December 2nd.
Donors, ages 17-76, should be in good health and have some form of identification with them. Teenagers, age 16 can also donate with parental permission; forms for this will be available at the site. Anyone with questions about donating can call the blood center at 800-688-0900.

The retaining wall that forms the deep end of Colony Pool was noted to be deteriorating and in need of replacement. In addition, significant settlement was also noted in the concrete deck above the wall. The Township Committee elected to replace the wall and decking following the 2016 swim season. The project was publicly bid and awarded to PM Construction. The wall to be replaced has been demolished and the debris removed from the property. The reconstruction of a replacement wall is underway. Work will progress as weather permits. Appropriate additives and care will be undertaken for any concrete pours in cold weather. The work is scheduled to be completed in early spring 2017 before the Colony Pool swimming season begins.
