Sustainable Jersey has awarded the 2013 Bronze Certification for sustainability efforts to Moorestown Township. The certification indicates that Moorestown has made a commitment to sustainability and succeeded in implementing relevant programs and community outreach efforts.
In 2013, Sustainable Moorestown helped to secure grants to pay for 80 percent of the cost of improved lighting at the Church Street Recreation Center and to make environmentally friendly enhancements to the new town hall. Another grant was obtained to update the town’s Environmental Resource Inventory.
“This recognition is a result of the dedicated effort of our team and the group’s collaboration with other organizations in the community,” comments Cathy Ward, chair of Sustainable Moorestown. “Our goal is to engage a diverse group of stakeholders through numerous projects to promote the growth and vitality of Moorestown, while protecting and enhancing the Township’s environment for today and future generations.”
“The hard work by this dedicated and passionate group of volunteers is greatly appreciated by the entire Town Council,” remarks Mayor Stacey Jordan. “It is people like the members of Sustainable Moorestown that make our community the special place that it is.”
