Public Notice: Snow Emergency
9:15 AM Update: Merchantville Public Works has been out plowing the roads since 4AM. Each street has been plowed twice. (There has been an issue in gaining access to Merwit Court that is currently being addressed.) Despite these efforts, the roadways still remain in difficult driving condition. It is CRITICAL for the Borough’s snow removal efforts that residents stay off the roads except for emergency circumstances. Merchantville remains under a state of snow emergency as declared by the governor.
Blizzard WARNING
A major snowstorm will hit the area Friday night and last into Sunday morning, with many parts of our area getting 10” or more snow. The storm will be even more severe in the Washington, DC and Baltimore areas and less severe in New York City and Boston. This will cause a transportation nightmare for much of the East Coast. The storm will start as snow, but not until after 6pm Friday. Many roads will be pre-treated, so it might take until after midnight before conditions really go downhill. Travel Saturday is simply not recommended for most of the area, and the poor travel conditions may continue into Sunday morning. In New Jersey, a Blizzard Watch is in effect for the following counties - Mercer; Middlesex; Somerset; Camden; Gloucester; Northwestern Burlington; Salem; Atlantic; Cumberland; Ocean; Southeastern Burlington; Western Monmouth.

Merchantville Station Cafe: Arts Hub as Redevelopment Linchpin

edward-brennanTo Merchantville Mayor Ted Brennan, the Station cafe is the keystone to redevelopment in the heart of his borough’s business district. “For a long period of time, it’s just been corporate offices,” which provide ratables, but which don’t offer a unique cultural aspect, Brennan said. Adding a fine and performing arts space at the center of the borough downtown, however; that’s something he can work with.
