The Borough of Chatham is soliciting input regarding potential development of the Post Office Plaza area behind Main Street in our downtown. Your feedback will help us in developing options for this project. 

Question Title

* 2. Please provide your Name and Address

Question Title

* 3. Possible development of the Post Office Plaza area involves numerous trade-offs. Please indicate the importance of the following factors being considered in the redevelopment project.

  Not a priority Low priority Somewhat of a priority High priority N/A
Beautify the spaces behind Main Street
Provide revenues to reduce the tax burden on Chatham homeowners and ensure continued investment in Borough infrastructure and equipment
Provide alternative housing options downtown (e.g., high end apartments for "downsizing seniors" or younger residents)
Meet the Borough's mandatory affordable housing requirements (this is a constitutional requirement and failure to do so could expose Chatham to "builder's remedy," allowing developers to construct multi-family housing within the Borough without complying with our density, height, bulk, and setback standards). 
Enhance the downtown area with more amenities, such as restaurants, gathering areas, and outdoor dining spaces
Attract more customers to Chatham businesses

Question Title

* 4. Any downtown development could also have some negative impacts on our community. Please indicate your level of concern about the following potential impacts.

  Very concerned Somewhat concerned Neutral Not Concerned NA/Not Sure
Increased car traffic
Loss of public parking spaces
Increase in number of children in Chatham public schools
Loss of "small town feel" in downtown Chatham
Physical impact of project that is out of scale with the rest of downtown (e.g., too tall or bulky compared to other buildings)

Question Title

* 5. Please provide any additional thoughts or feedback that the Council should consider when developing options for the Post Office Plaza. 

Thank you for your feedback. The Borough will be holding in-person public meetings to review options for the Post Office Plaza project in the coming weeks. Your input on this survey will help us in the development of these options. Please sign up for Borough e-mails to ensure that you are alerted to the upcoming meetings.  https://lp.constantcontactpages.com/su/zm1LS38
