A Message from the Mayor

Dear Neighbor,

As we approach the warmer months ahead, I am excited to announce that I am signing the National Wildlife Federation’s Mayor’s Monarch Pledge uniting government leaders from across the country to take action to protect the monarch butterfly, an iconic species whose populations have drastically declined in recent years. Through this pledge, we are dedicating ourselves to increasing awareness about the monarch butterfly’s population decline and dire need for new habitats, and working to promote and grow the many pollinator-friendly habitats we have throughout the Township.

Thanks to the efforts of the Cherry Hill Environmental Board, the Township has already taken important steps to support this effort. This past October, for example, CHEB board member Barbara Patrizzi helped organize efforts to become the first municipality in Camden County and the fifth in New Jersey to become a certified National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat. Through this program, communities become healthier, greener, and more wildlife-friendly by creating wildlife habitats throughout the community while educating and engaging residents through events, educational workshops and hands-on service projects.

This is an important certification that demonstrates Cherry Hill’s dedication to supporting our environment, and the Monarch Pledge is another vital step forward in this work. I’m proud to have the enthusiastic support of our Cherry Hill Green Team, led by Councilwoman Sangeeta Doshi and Councilwoman Jennifer Apell, as we continue to work together to protect Cherry Hill's natural resources. For more information about how you can do your part to protect Monarchs, is a great place to start!

Cherry Hill Dedicates Soccer Fields in Memory of U.S.M.C. Cpl. Justin Major

Mayor Angulo, Council President Fleisher and Council Vice President Bauerle joined friends and family of U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Justin Major on Tuesday afternoon to dedicate the soccer fields he played on for many years to his memory and unveil a sign in his honor.

Cpl. Major was a Cherry Hill resident who passed away in September 2021 at the age of 25 while serving active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps in Hawaii. As a child growing up in Cherry Hill, Cpl. Major spent countless hours playing on the fields at the DeCou Sports Complex.

A tree honoring Justin will be planted near the sign in late April. Justin’s family is also partnering with a local artist and Cherry Hill FC to commission a community mural for the Cherry Hill FC building, located at the fields, which will encapsulate values like dedication, teamwork and kindness

Councilwoman Sangeeta Doshi, a member of the NJ Transit Board of Directors, joined the agency's leaders, as well as local elected officials, for the unveiling of a new equipment to charge electric buses at the Newton Bus garage in Camden.

AARP Senior Tax Help- By Appointment Only!

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide services will again be available to Cherry Hill area residents from February 1 through April 12 - with a different twist for 2021: There will be no on-site traditional tax preparation where the taxpayer sits with an AARP Tax-Aide during the tax preparation process.

Instead, taxpayers will have the choice of 2 service models:

Same Day Drop-Off: Taxpayers interact with an IRS-certified Tax-Aide in a 20-30 minute in-person and socially distanced meeting. During the appointment, the Tax-Aide will complete the intake process and write a receipt for all tax documents collected. These meetings, available by appointment only, will take place in the Municipal Building in Room 208 on Tuesdays and Fridays, 10am to 2pm.

Before the taxpayer leaves, they will make a follow-up appointment to return the same day to review the printed tax return, sign an authorization for AARP Foundation to file the return electronically, and acknowledge their receipt of the original tax documents. 

Taxpayers can only make appointments by accessing the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Site Locator for Cherry Hill at: after January 15th. Taxpayers will receive an automatic confirmation email. A follow-up email from will include the links to documents to be printed, completed, and brought to the drop-off site. If you do not have a printer, packets containing all required documents will be available for pick-up at the Community Center and the Municipal building.

If there are no appointments available, taxpayers can add themselves to the appointment waitlist. An AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will contact waitlisted taxpayers by phone as appointments become available. 

Self Preparation: Under this model, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides taxpayers with free access to software so they can prepare their own taxes. Taxpayers can also request help from an IRS-certified counselor to coach them through the process by phone or through computer screen-sharing. Participants can only request virtual tax prep assistance through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide's website Participants must provide a private email address to use this model.

Please do not contact this site about any of the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide service offerings. They are wonderful, supportive hosts, but they are not AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers.
