The agenda starts with a presentation on the successful fundraising and class moral building activities known as Spirit Week. The discussion was led by the class presidents. In citizen comments was a report of cars not heeding to a stopped bus on Grove Street repeatedly. He brought it to the board's attention after he contacted the police. The 2015 Budget Referendum saw vigorous comment, sometimes heated, over the proposed maintenance referendum. No Vote was taken but a special meeting of December 15 was set to move the motion along after giving the public proper notice and cleaning up of some noticed errors in the calculation of projects. The school calendar was mentioned as being a challenge due to a late Labor Day and both Jewish holidays falling on weekdays in September. Actions taken included staff leaves, retirements and hiring. Of note was the 2014 Financial Audit that found nearly no errors: $14,000 of a budget of $35,000,000 that needed better documentation. The board also accepted an $8,000 grant for Lizzie Haddon.

Planning Board Meeting December 2, 2014 from Haddonfield Civic Association on Vimeo.

This final meeting of 2014 also saw the end of 5 months of meetings on the subdivision application of 605 Warwick Rd. After the dust settled the application was denied with prejudice meaning the board rejected the application based on a list of deficiencies in the plan. Mostly these shortcomings involved storm water management and maintenance. The developer can improve these areas and resubmit the application. This of course will start the process all over again.
