The condition of theroad, safety considerations andaccident history, traffic volume,number of homes, length of theroadway, last date paved andgrant availability, rated from verypoor to excellent, determinewhich roads will be considered.The improvement project willbe done over the course of fouryears through 2017.Kettle Run Road, Sycamore Av-enue, South Elmwood Road, Ram-sey Avenue, Kent Avenue andEvans Road are all slated for im-provement this year.In 2014, Kent Avenue from thedead end to Palmetto, KnoxBoulevard, Dutch Road, LakesideDrive and one and a half miles of Kettle Run Road are scheduled tobe repaired.In 2015, South Cropwell Roadfrom Marlton Pike to Cherry Hill,Ridgemount Drive, RichmondPlace, Shady Lane and CoventryCircle East are scheduled to be re-paired.The final two years of therepaving include Merion Roadfrom Wyndmere between Merionand Concord, ConcordRoad, Chestnut Avenue, PelhamRoad from Willow Ridge Road andFoxwood Lane.Marsham Drive, MayvilleLane, Meadowview Circle, Thorn-wood Drive and Nottingham Roadwill be the final roads repaired,according to the plan.“We may make some minorchanges to that based on whatcouncil would like to do. They’dlike to see some more residentialroadways included in that pack-age,” Cromie said.In other news, the sign ordi-nance wording is still beingworked on.“Work on the resolution will bedone with the solicitor to come upwith the wording of an ordinanceto give staff leeway in how we ap-prove different signs to better pro-mote business in town,” Cromiesaid. “We don’t want to discour-age business in town, we want topromote it.”The ordinance will be on a fu-ture agenda, according to Cromie.In other news, the townshipcouncil surprised Mayor RandyBrown with a proclamation forhis accomplishments with theBaltimore Ravens.The proclamation was read bycouncilman Ken D’Andrea on be-half of the rest of the council.“He was very humble,” Cromiesaid.Eighth-grade student govern-ment winners and members fromthe American Cancer Society’sRelay for Life were also givenproclamations.Relay for Life is slated for May13.The next township councilmeeting will be held March 5 at6:30 p.m. at the municipal build-ing located at 984 TuckertonRoad.
