In June 2021, Mayor Kobylarz settled a lawsuit that sought to impose a big apartment block on the Bradley properties on the west end of Main Street. He settled that case by committing our Borough to many other obligations – including commitments for Post Office Plaza, just off Main – in exchange for a temporary break from similar litigation and the promise of a few units of affordable housing.
Now we have a great alternative for the 5 acres behind the Main Street Post Office!
It includes more surface parking and a pretty public green space.
Longtime Chatham businesswoman and civic leader Fran Drew conceived this idea as an alternative to the proposals offered by the big Kushner developers, who stand to profit by using corporate welfare PILOT tax breaks to build a project that will destroy our little Chatham Borough, with big expenses and even more traffic on Main Street.
Chatham residents are excited about this fresh idea, which is aimed at preserving and enhancing our community.
Are you tired of ever-worsening traffic on Main Street?
Make sure this idea gets a fair hearing before our Mayor and Borough Council.
