Visioning workshops

Evesham Township has announced dates for two community-visioning workshops designed to encourage residents to help the Township clarify and prioritize goals with respect to community/economic development, infrastructure, land preservation and public services including recreation. The initiative, called EVESHAM 20/20 is completely funded by a grant from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, Office of Smart Growth.

Residents, business owners and civic leaders are asked to give an hour of their time to create a common vision for Evesham’s future. Residents will be guided through a process designed to obtain detailed preferences for the future commercial development of the Route 70/73 intersection, options for improving Main Street as a functional town center and overall guidance for improving the quality of life in individual neighborhoods.

Two identical sessions will be held on Saturday, July 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesday, July 21 from 4:30 to 9:30 pm. Workshops will be held at the Gibson House on Tuckerton Road in a drop-in format. Although not required, residents are encouraged to RSVP for either date by contacting Monica Vandenberg by email at vandenbergm@evesham-nj.gov or by telephone at 985–4347.
