Census 2020

April 24, 2020 - Update from Mayor Scott - COVID -19
Dear Friends & Neighbors - Greetings from my home to yours. I hope you had a happy and healthy week.
I'd like to start by congratulating everyone for our town's exceptional participation so far in the 2020 Census. As of the first tally date of April 1, 70% of Cranbury residents have completed the census. That's the best response rate in Middlesex county. If you have not yet responded, you should do so asap either by filling out the form that was mailed to you or going online to https://my2020census.gov/ . The census is an important tool to measure the composition of our town and to ensure we get proper representation, state and federal funding for our population - please make sure you are counted.
With social distancing guidelines likely to remain in effect for weeks to come, our always highly anticipated Memorial Day Parade has been canceled. This will not mean that we won't celebrate Memorial Day as a town, however. Just as we've adapted to conducting business, school and socializing a different way we will create a new way to honor the day. An announcement about plans is forthcoming.
Our next Township Committee meeting is coming up this Monday, April 27 at 7:00 pm. It's easier than ever to attend these meetings now that they are being conducted virtually - see the agenda and follow the instructions to join here: https://www.cranburytownship.org/sites/cranburynj/files/agendas/tc_agend...
On a practical note, if you're looking to up your video conferencing skill on Zoom here's an article with some tips:

If you're looking for something to listen to during your time at home, try this series of podcasts about rare and unknown history in NJ brought to you by the Middlesex County Cultural & Heritage Commission:http://www.middlesexcountynj.gov/Government/Departments/BDE/Pages/Podcas... . Or for inspiration from someone who has dealt with serious social isolation, this interview with a NASA astronaut: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/349569
One takeaway that resonates: What you're doing is meaningful, and you have something to look forward to.
If you do need to go out and are in need of protection a group of local residents have secured CDC-recommended face masks. Any residents who would like to receive a few face masks for their personal use may use the sign-up at this link. This is not a township-sponsored service, but I want to thank these residents and raise awareness for anyone who need masks:

Finally, I would again like to thank our local front-line workers and volunteers doing their part during this pandemic. Cranbury is home to many of my fellow medical professionals, first responders, and essential workers going to work so that others can stay home. Our neighbors have also stepped up to organize volunteer efforts that are having an incredible impact on individual residents, businesses and the community overall. I'm proud of us.
Have a great weekend and upcoming week -
Mayor Matt Scott

NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife - Coyote Management: An Integrated Approach

Advisory: Coyote Sightings/Warnings

Over the last several weeks, there have been undocumented reports of coyote sightings within the Township. Although these sightings have not been officially reported to the police department, we want to share this along with some valuable information on how to avoid a confrontation with a coyote. We hope this information will help keep our residents safe and raise awareness to this potential wildlife threat.

Coyotes are primarily carnivorous but also opportunistic. Seasonally they eat fruit and berries but in populated areas they also eat garbage and pet food. Attacks on small dogs and cats are common. Coyotes in these populated areas get comfortable with humans and are drawn to yards by pets, pet food, garbage, small farm animals and denning sites. Coyotes can carry rabies.

How to avoid conflicts with coyotes:
- Do NOT feed coyotes
- Do NOT allow pets to run loose or unattended
- Do NOT run from a coyote
- R eport aggressive/fearless coyotes immediately
- Do NOT create conflict; if a coyote is acting as a coyote should by avoiding humans and pets, do not seek out opportunities to frighten the animal away by hazing or aggravating it.

April 3, 2020 - Update from Mayor Scott - COVID 19

Hello neighbors - I hope you all survived another week of Covid social distancing safely and with a smile.

Just a few updates from me to end the week:

Special thanks to members of the Cranbury community who dropped off FIVE HUNDRED KN95 MASKS for the Cranbury Police to use and share with first responders and local health care workers! These were organized through the HX Chinese School at Plainsboro (HXPCS) and the Central Jersey Chinese-American Association (CJCAA). My hospital (Newark Beth Israel), like so many others, is in desperate need of these masks.

Important for business owners: Applications are now being accepted for two different funding programs for small businesses: the N.J. Economic Development Authority's Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program and The US Cares Paycheck Protection Program. Applications are time-sensitive so if you think you could benefit from either program check out details today: https://www.njchamber.com/covid19 .

Finally, please remember that all dogs must remain on leashes in all Township parks, including the West Property. For all we're doing for social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, let's make sure our unleashed dogs aren't the weakest link.

Enjoy the weekend and stay safe!

Mayor Matt Scott

March 25, 2020 - Update from Mayor Scott - COVID-19

Hello Cranbury -

Here are some recent updates I wanted to share.

As reported previously by Chief Varga, Cranbury has one confirmed case of COVID-19. We should expect more and not be alarmed by this.

As a reminder, for the latest state updates, residents can now either:

Text NJCOVID to 898211
Or call 211
Or visit nj211.org

In order to support the downtown restaurants that remain open, Teddy's and Cranbury Pizza, Cranbury resident Louise Campi has provided them with a clever incentive to get you in for take-out...each order will come with a coveted roll of toilet paper! This is clearly a promotion of the moment and one to remember! We are thankful to Louise for coming up with this.

Please remember to support our restaurants throughout the township. Italian Touch, Mr. Subs, Cranbury Station and Zinna's Bistro are all open for pick-up and delivery.

The township also remains “open for business”. We have received guidance from the state on how to conduct virtual meetings. We will begin those meetings shortly - more details to come.

The parks remain open for “passive recreation” - but what does this mean? Playground equipment, basketball and tennis courts are closed. Walking, running, walking your dog, doing push-ups or burpees, taking photographs, setting up an easel and painting...all encouraged! Playdates for kids - not encouraged. It's hard to enforce social distancing on playdates, so don't try.

Finally, if you're itching to help out in some way and are not sure what's needed, please contact Committee Member Barbara Rogers directly at [email protected]. You'll be added to a list of volunteers. If you or a neighbor need something, such as groceries or medicine or help taking care of a pet while you're sick, please use this form to communicate your needs to volunteers ready to help: Click here !

That's all for now. Stay safe and stay in touch with friends and neighbors.
