The three-member Board of Commissioners said they still want to work with the BOE for public-purchase strategies for the site.
The Haddonfield Board of Commissioners on Tuesday rejected a request from the borough school board to be named developer for the Bancroft site on Kings Highway East. The decision was made in a work-session meeting. No public votes on ordinances or resolutions are held at work sessions but other public policy may be decided. The school board asked to be named the developer for the 18.7-acre site two weeks ago. It was part of a plan it has for purchasing the property, demolishing existing buildings and converting it for school use, athletic fields and open space. Bancroft, a center for people with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries, has been located on the site at 425 Kings Highway East for the past 128 years. It's …

Long-time Haddonfield solicitor Mario Iavicoli is reappointed.
The Haddonfield Board of Commissioners reappointed long-time solicitor Mario Iavicoli to another term and included a $5,000 bump in his yearly salary during an action meeting Tuesday at the Municipal Hall. Iavicoli, entering his 33rd year as solicitor, will now earn $70,000 yearly for being the borough's attorney for municipal matters. Iavicoli is a borough resident and recently told the commissioners he would continue as solicitor here even though he has curtailed similar assignments in other South Jersey towns. Ed Borden, one of three borough commissioners and a former Camden County prosecutor, said Iavicoli brings "creative lawyering" and saves Haddonfield money by working for a flat fee instead of charging by the hour. "It's a …

Public comments about traffic flow and seasonal displays dominated discussion at Haddonfield Commissioners meeting.
A handful of public comments at the borough commissioners’ final work session of 2011 topped an agenda filled with a variety of odds and ends, including bus routes and the borough holiday displays. Euclid Street residents Joyce Howell and Mary Ann Walker spoke about how the Tanner Street construction diverted the 451 NJ Transit bus to their street. “As the construction on Tanner Street wound down, the bus traffic didn’t change,” Howell said, adding that Euclid felt to her like “an urban street at certain hours of the day. “Tanner Street is a business street; Euclid from Westmont Avenue up is residential,” she said. Walker said she saw buses driving up Euclid as recently as three times an hour during a recent weekday. The regular bus route …

The turnabout could block a private housing plan for the site.
In a surprising turnabout, Haddonfield Commissioner Ed Borden on Tuesday recommended the borough “seriously look at the public option” for the much-anticipated redevelopment of the 18.7-acre Bancroft property on Kings Highway East. Borden made the announcement in a commissioners' work session Tuesday afternoon. He had previously spoken in support of an effort to build senior assisted-care or independent living units as the primary development at the site. He said about 10 low- to moderate-income housing units may still be constructed if there is a public purchase. The redevelopment has been a lightning rod for divergent opinions on what to do with the space once Bancroft, a center for people with developmental disabilities, leaves the site…
