As residents we all share a common vision. We want our
community to be thought of as the best place to live and
raise a family and have it represented in a positive
friendly manner. I believe that Beachwood is the best place
to live and raise a family.
Our goal as Beachwood’s
elected official is, has been and will continue to be, to
represent our community positively and to act on initiatives
that will keep Beachwood both successful and strong in years
One way that you too can impact your
community is to get involved by volunteering. It is truly
one of the best ways to join in shaping the future of the
town in which we live and raise our children and
grandchildren. Volunteering, allows everyone to play a key
role in shaping the social atmosphere as well as giving you
a feeling of pride and ownership in your community.
Please help us continue to make Beachwood the best place to
live, work and raise our children by joining our local
boards, commissions or committees, by participating in your
local organizations that promote strong goals for your
children and by joining and supporting all of our volunteer
It is an honor and privilege to have
been able to serve as Councilman and now as your Mayor and I
know that your Governing Body will do it’s very best to
represent Beachwood as the positive productive community we
know it to be.
New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign
Provides Free Tree Seedlings to Residents
in Borough of
Free tree seedlings will be available to
Borough of Beachwood residents in the month of April
as part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign. This
program helps communities replace trees damaged or
destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
From 9am to 12pm
on April 5, 2014, residents will be able to pick up
tree seedlings at the Borough Hall Parking Lot; 1600
Pinewald Road, Beachwood. Seedlings, available on a
first come, first served basis, also come with
instructions on how to store, care for, and plant
them. The guides help residents choose the right place
on a property to plant a tree while keeping in mind
the tree’s full-grown size in the future. Residents
should plant the seedlings within two days after
pick-up in order to prevent the roots from drying out.
The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to
distribute over 500,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey
residents over the course of the next five years. It
is a joint effort between Borough of Beachwood, the
New Jersey State Forestry Services Community Forestry
Program, The State Forest Nursery, New Jersey Soil
Conservation Districts, Sustainable Jersey, and the
Arbor Day Foundation. Arbor Day Foundation, FedEx, and
BJ’s Wholesale Club provide financial support for the
When properly planted and maintained,
trees can be assets to a community. They improve the
visual appeal of a neighborhood or business district,
increase property values, reduce home cooling costs,
remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat,
among many other benefits.

REBUILDING AFTER SANDY
New Jersey is committed
to rebuilding coastal areas to be safer and more
resilient following the unprecedented devastation
from Superstorm Sandy. That's why the Department of
Environmental Protection has adopted emergency
amendments to its Flood Hazard Area Control Act rule
that establish new elevation standards for new and
reconstructed buildings that will protect lives and
property. These FAQs will guide you through the
process of rebuilding and help you understand the
benefits of elevating.
