- Would you like to see hundreds more cars and trucks clogging up our streets, making it harder to get to work, school, MDs?
- Would you like to park in a dangerous, windowless garage, where a police officer right outside couldn’t hear your screams?
- Would you like to pay higher taxes – and lower the value of your house – to give a big developer a 30-year tax break?
Big real estate interests have ensnared Chatham Borough in an extreme, risky corporate welfare scheme. They plan to build a massive, multi-story, 200-unit rental apartment/retail complex behind our Post Office. It will transform our town into a bleak, high-tax, transit hub and, ultimately, a failed city.
Only your new Mayor and Borough Council can prevent that!
Come help your neighbors encourage them:

Borough Hall, 54 Fairmount Avenue, Chatham, NJ
Assure the new Mayor and Council that you will support them in doing what’s best for Chatham:
- Let the Redeveloper’s designation expire;
- Rescind the Redevelopment Plan for Post Office Plaza;
- Consider moderate options that don’t involve:
- worsening traffic;
- sacrificing our open-air, public parking;
- giving away corporate welfare tax breaks; or
- shifting business risks to Chatham taxpayers; and
- Conduct due diligence, and a valid survey of all households and businesses by U.S. Mail, with pros and cons of at least three such options.
