Candidate for Chatham Borough Council Disputes Claim on Flyer


To the Editor:

When I read an 8x10 flyer that I got in the mail yesterday, from Clyde and Kobylarz for Council, it reconfirmed to me that every thing you read is certainly not true. Knowing the facts is imperative. Disseminating information correctly is crucial.

The Master Plan is a vision document setting the blueprints for a community's growth, revitalization and preservation. It is AUTHORED by the planning Board NOT the Council.

The recommendation to evaluate the train station parking for potential use as a raised parking deck, was an issue raised by ONE resident at our first community forum in Feb 2016. At that forum  over 100 residents were asked what they thought of the down town and what could be done to enhance it?

How do you go from ONE person's opinion at a community forum to this following conclusion?   

"Would you like to see a multi story parking deck developed right in the middle of downtown Chatham"?"That seems to be the plan of our current government. Just check Chatham's new Master Plan."

Anyone checking the Master Plan (draft) information provided on our website (step by step for the last nine months) would see that the Master Plan clearly SUPPORTS the open space policies of the Borough and identifies concerns to assure the preservation of the downtown character.

I am running for re election to Council this year to continue the work that I have been involved with on behalf of Chatham Borough. 


Please remember to vote.

Respectfully submitted,

Victoria Fife

Council Member

Chatham Borough

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
