CHATHAM, NJ - Robert Falzarano, borough administrator, gave his annual presentation on the "Goals & Objectives" for 2016 at the Borough of Chatham Council meeting on Monday night.

Of the 37 goals presented, No. 18 seemed to be foremost on the minds of most members of the council. Goal No. 18 states: "Continue to plan for the future, complete the Master Plan Re-Examination to determine whether the Land Development Ordinance needs to be changed to meet community objectives."

The responsible party listed on the report was the Planning Board, but the start of this plan for the future will start with input from Chatham Borough residents. To that end, Chatham Borough is holding a Community Open House 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18 at the Library of the Chathams.

The idea is to hear residents share their vision for Chatham Borough for the next 10 years, and what residents would like to see changed. The Master Plan is a guideline that will be adopted by the planning board, but is not a law. It is a guideline for zoning and public improvements.

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 ...
