The Congressional Award

 

Dear friends,

I’m writing to inform you of an exciting opportunity for high school and college students across

South Jersey to get involved in their community and get recognized for their contributions.

The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. The program is non-partisan, voluntary, non-competitive, and is open to all 14 to 23-year-olds. Students may register when they turn 13-and-a half-years old and must complete their activities before their 24th birthday.

Participants earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Certificates as well as Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Volunteer Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration.

Students may earn their reward independently or with friends doing something they already enjoy, or by taking on a new challenge. Students work at their own pace. There’s no minimum grade point average requirement necessary.

This opportunity not only helps students make a difference in the community. Most importantly, the program gives students a sense of pride and accomplishment of having made a contribution to society.

One proud participant and recipient of the awards is Andrew Geldreich, one of my constituents. I’m proud of Andrew’s hard work and dedication. I’m also proud to say Andrew serves as an intern at my District Office in Cherry Hill.

Students may learn more about the Congressional Award by clicking here. Interested students may register for the Award by clicking here.

Sincerely,

Donald Norcross

Member of Congress (NJ-01)

WHEREAS, the Applicant is now appearing before the Board to present Minor Site Plan with variance relief to expand the existing operation on the property; and

WHEREAS, the Applicant presented evidence to the Planning Board in the form of testimony on September 24, 2014. The Applicant was represented by Melanie Levan, Esquire, who provided the Board with a summary of the plan, stating that the Applicant is before the Board seeking approval of an expansion to the existing site with an addition of 2,300 square feet for warehouse and office space.  Ms. Levan presented Mr. Bekas to testify in support of the application.  Mr. Bekas testified that he operates a graphic design company for restaurants as well as direct mail operations.  Mr. Bekas testified that he has owned the property since 2005 and that the business has been successful, requiring expansion of the operation.  Mr. Bekas testified that they are proposing an office and warehouse addition and that the addition will require setback variance relief from the front yard requirements of forty(40) feet.  Mr. Bekas testified that he is seeking relief from drive aisle width, a pre-existing condition on the site, and relief from providing a loading area as it is unnecessary for the type of business he operates.  Ms. Levan next presented Mr. Dimitrios Armenakis, the Applicant’s architect, who testified that he submitted a response letter to Mr. Cray’s review letter of September 2, 2014 and that the Applicant agrees to comply with all requirements; and

WHEREAS, the meeting was opened to the public and no members of the public appeared to speak on the application; and

  6. The Application is deemed complete and right for determination.
  7. The Board has jurisdiction over the Application.
  8. The Applicant has shown that the site plan is consistent with the Maple Shade Township Master Plan and the BD Zone.

            WHEREFORE, upon motion duly made by Ms. Porrini and seconded by Mr. Wells, the Planning Board voted to approve the application for Minor Site Plan Approval with variances. The conditions of approval are that the Applicant shall comply with all requirements set forth by the board engineer as set forth during the meeting and in his review letters incorporated herein to the extent that they have not already been complied with or relief granted for the same and that the Applicant must obtain any and all other required governmental approvals and permits.
