4/25/2016 - ‘Spring Cleaning’ takes New Meaning in Hamilton with Neighborhood Improvement and Quality of Life Effort

‘Spring Cleaning’ takes New Meaning in Hamilton with Neighborhood Improvement and Quality of Life Effort

‘Spring cleaning’ is about to become a community-wide effort in Hamilton Township.

As part of her efforts to maintain Hamilton’s high quality of life and keep the community ‘safe, clean and beautiful’, Mayor Kelly Yaede is launching Hamilton’s ‘Neighborhood Improvement Program.’

The effort is a proactive and cooperative way for officials to work with residents, identify various violations that impact citizens’ safety or quality of life and to ultimately keep Hamilton looking its best.  The program uses existing Township personnel and does not entail any additional cost to taxpayers.

Through the effort, coordinated by Hamilton’s Division of Health, representatives from Hamilton’s Divisions of Housing and Code Enforcement, Hamilton’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office and the Hamilton Township Police Division Community Policing Unit will work together as a team on a scheduled, neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis to help identify issues that require abatement and, when possible, even provide information about possible improvement grants that can assist residents. 

Some common issues that the program seeks to correct are housing safety issues (needed roof, window or structural issues), as well as zoning and health-related violations (vehicles parked on the grass, abandoned or unregistered vehicles, junk, rubbish and debris on properties or high grass).

“This program shall keep our community safe and looking its very best,” explains Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “By our entire community working together, we will improve the already high quality of life that residents enjoy – which benefits every Hamiltonian.”

The program will start in April and continue across the community during the coming months.  Issues requiring abatement will be formally mailed to property owners to help clarify any necessary corrective actions.
