CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Township Committee passed a resolution on Thursday night that declares the performance bond holder of the High Gate development in default, naming "Fenix Chatham I and Fenix Chatham II."

The public hearing on the resolution regarding the High Gate development on the top of Long View Avenue is set for May 12.

The resolution details the agreement for a 9-home development that was signed on May 30, 2013. The work was supposed to be completed by Dec. 8, 2015. The deadline was extended to Jan. 31, 2016.

Long View residents Martin and Susan Blumenthal have been before the township committee a number of times to ask for a remedy for the unfinished work on their street. The Blumenthals' home is located within the subdivision.

"It's been two years and one month," Martin Blumenthal, a 48-year township resident, said.

Chatham Township Engineer John Ruschke talks about the process involved in declaring the bond holder in default

High Gate developer Ron Gunn tried to update the committee on the progress, but was cut off by Thomas Ciccarone, township administrator, who told him it wasn't the time or place for more excuses.

Gunn has been at odds with the township committee because of repeated delays and violations of construction requirements set forth by the township.

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 ...
