Some residents had expected the board to consider a resolution from the commissioners to establish a redevelopment zone at the Black Horse Pike Auto Complex.
Thursday's scheduled planning board meeting was canceled because the applicants postponed their hearings until April, the board administrator said Wednesday afternoon. In its February meeting, the board ordered the township engineering and planning firm, Key Engineers, to evaluate a resolution approved by township commissioners to designate an area near the Black Horse Pike and Walnut Avenue as a redevelopment zone. In January, Mayor Randy Teague told residents at a tense meeting about the redevelopment zone, and a developing plan to build an affordable-housing apartment complex, that the planning board would likely consider it at its March meeting. The redevelopment zone was expected to help the Walters Group, a builder considering …

Units from Audubon, Bellmawr, Camden and Gloucester cities, Cherry Hill, Mt. Ephraim, Pennsauken and Westmont joined Squad 16 in containing the second-story fire.
It came through dispatch as an apartment fire at the Heights of Collingswood—and then the caller hung up, said Collingswood Fire Chief Keith Davis. Within four minutes, respondents from eight other nearby companies joined him at the scene of a second-floor apartment fire that sent one woman to the hospital Wednesday afternoon. The fire was under control before 1:30 p.m., Davis said. The woman reportedly suffered smoke inhalation and later received treatment at Cooper University Hospital in Camden for her injuries, which authorities termed “non-life-threatening.” Members of Collingswood Squad 16 were sent up to the second floor on a search-and-rescue with a 5-pound extinguisher, and were able to knock down some of the fire when they …

The resurfacing project will improve conditions on the 90-year-old West Park Boulevard bridge but shut it down for three months starting Monday.
If any part of your regular commute takes you down West Park Boulevard (CR 641) in Haddon Township, you might want to plan an alternate route for the next thee months. The Camden County Department of Public Works will begin a 90-day, $273,388 reconstruction project on the West Park Boulevard Bridge on Monday that will close the road from Walnut Avenue to Chestnut Street. West Park Boulevard leads into West End Avenue in Haddonfield. It's a convenient route to or from the borough to avoid Haddon Avenue traffic. Authorities are asking drivers to use Haddon Avenue instead during the construction, which will resurface the roadway and its striping, and add new curbs, handicap ramps and manhole castings. The bridge was originally constructed in …

Great selection and great prices make The Pour House stand a (foamy) head above the competition.
I really wanted to like The Pour House. I had heard great things about their extensive beer and burger-centric menu, and I figured a Flyers/Phillies double header would provide an ideal opportunity to experience it for myself. I really, really wanted to like The Pour House. And you know what? I really, really did. A little background: I was a bit apprehensive about The Pour House when I learned it was owned by the same group that owns the P.J. Whelihan's franchises that dot the South Jersey landscape. Nothing against P.J. Whelihan's; it’s just your run-of-the-mill sports bar that offers pretty standard food and drink. When I saw The Pour House’s beer list, however, featuring 141 different bottles (including the notoriously difficult to …
