Flood Restoration Survey

Lincoln Park Flood Restoration Survey  

Lincoln Park was awarded technical assistance from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers Silver Jackets program to assist with post acquisition restoration planning for heavily flooded areas.   
The goal of this plan is to help mitigate flooding thru naturalization of areas and working to include passive recreation opportunities (i.e. boating, trails and habitat creation). 
The Borough and its team (USACE, Rutgers, NJDEP and the County of Morris) are looking for input from the public and request you fill out this short survey below. 
For questions on this plan or survey please reach out to Borough Administrator Perry Mayers:

 “When in doubt throw it out” -it is better to throw out an item with your solid waste rather than risk contaminating the recyclables. ALMOST 30% IF RECYCLED ITEMS END UP IN LANDFILLS DUE TO CONTAMINATION. It is best to reduce, then reuse and finally recycle.

A smile is always in season

Holiday Depression is Real
A simple act of reaching out can brighten anyone's day and mood, including your own!

A simple well-wishing or expression of gratitude can make a world of difference to someone who feels alone.  When you talk to your loved one, friend or a simple acquaintance, use these tips:

  • Let them know that you are there for them and that they matter.
  • Acknowledge that the holiday season can be difficult and that it's OK not to feel happy or joyous.
  • Express gratitude for knowing them.
  • Remind them that even though this might be a difficult or even painful time, things change and they will likely feel better at a later time.
  • Most importantly, let them know that you love and/or care for them.
Hope One
