Chamber Issues
that are being presented by the business community February 1999



February 8, 1999

The Boulevard is worn out, exhausted and needs help. It's time to refurbish some great ideas. Your Chamber of Commerce is discussing the following initiatives with the Mayor:

a. Expanded 15 minute parking zones: Position one spot at the beginning and end of each block from Kipp to Hamilton Avenue. The center sections of each block would remain 2 hours. Short term parking was started at the Post Office and selected corners. The HHPD has reviewed the current needs and is proposing a program of implementation to include: new signage, clearer roadway markings, better enforcement, etc. The goal is to facilitate quick drop off and pick up (i.e.. food service, Flash Photo, lottery tickets, etc.). The purpose is better parking management. The public wants easier, more convenient parking.

b. Litter baskets: If you feel that a litter basket will improve the cleanliness and quality of the Boulevard, the DPW will put one in at the curb, in front of your location. Call DPW at 288-1072 for availability.

c. Planters: Many years ago the Contemporary Club put up hanging baskets. Later, the Woman's Club set-up wooden tub planters. It's time to restore a good idea. Consider putting 2 per block with low maintenance shrubs. Unit costs, styles, funding, locations, etc. are being discussed.

d. Park benches along the Boulevard: The HH Lions Club purchased bus benches years ago, and were eventually replaced. It's time to re-evaluate the Boulevard seating opportunities. Consider installing a park bench like Rutherford's at the ends of each block. Funding by clubs, families, businesses, etc.

e. Decorative lighting: At the Chamber's request, the town has met with PSE&G regarding decorative lighting and is awaiting their proposal.

These initiatives were discussed and endorsed at the January 21and February 17 Chamber meetings. We are mobilizing the business community for additional support. If you have any comments regarding these initiatives, please contact Vince Kane at 288-3800 or attend the next Chamber meeting.
