MAPPING TOOLS – from the BCBC

March 24, 2021

Where can you see the designated redevelopment and rehabilitation areas in your town? On our Burlington County Bridge Commission website!

We are pleased to announce the creation of an online interactive mapping tool that shows areas designated in need of redevelopment by municipal governing bodies in Burlington County. Simply visit the BCBC’s website:

Burlington County Bridge Commission Regional Planning & Maps

 

Burlington County Redevelopment Opportunities Maps

 

Residents, developers, investors and local governments can now easily zoom to a particular municipality and see the designated redevelopment areas and rehabilitation areas.  This a great way for developers to find where the redevelopment opportunities are in your municipality! 

An easy click on each area provides additional information such as year created, resolution number and area size.  We ask that you take a few minutes to review the information for your municipality.  If the map is missing a redevelopment area in your town, kindly send us the resolution that designated the area in need of redevelopment and we will add it to our inventory. 

Thank you for your help – we invite your feedback, questions, or suggestions.

Mercantile License Program

Mercantile License Application

Edgewater Park Township Committee passed Ordinance No. 2019-4 on April 2, 2019, approving a method to identify and communicate with the Local Business Community by establishing a Mercantile License.

The primary use for this Mercantile License Program is to improve communications with the business community, especially in the event of emergencies.  When severe weather events occur, Edgewater Park First Responders need to be able to contact business owners immediately.  If a tree or vehicle crashes onto the business when it is closed and the owner or manager is not there, First Responders often need immediate information from someone in charge:  

Could anyone still be working or injured in the building?
Is there anything flammable inside which could be in peril?  
Will the product inventory “spoil” if not rescued immediately, e.g. from a flood or leaky roof?
Is there interior wiring near the crash site that could spark a fire & destroy the building, nearby buildings, or hurt others?  

There could be many unforeseen problems. Hence, registering via a Mercantile License is clearly a necessary emergency tool to aid not only the business, but also the Township First Responders.

There is no charge for this annual license. It only needs to be updated by each new January. Failure to fill out and return the application by December 31st of each year will result in a fine.

Any business that is new, in the process of opening, or is re-opening and has not yet filled out the Mercantile License Application should do so any time during the year and return it to the Township Building by:

Mail: 400 Delanco Road, Edgewater Park, NJ 08010
