Committeewoman Pat Snell and Committeeman Tony Perry congratulated Police Week graduates on Friday, August 10th, along with Police Chief Craig Weber and the core Police Youth Week team of officers. 

The Middletown Township Police Department held its final Police Youth Week Camp of the summer this week. There were 63 children between the ages of 8 to 11 who participated in the program which gave them their first exposure to law enforcement at the recruit phase.

The Police Youth Week program, run by Sergeant Kevin Gardiner, is a combination of classroom style learning and physical training. Participants learned firsthand about a wide variety of law enforcement training and techniques including officer safety, crime scene investigations, traffic enforcement and the K-9 unit. The program also emphasized the importance of protecting and serving. 

The week concluded with a graduation ceremony on August 10th at the Brookdale Student Life Center where the children received well-earned badges and certificates.

Upcoming Events

Special Notice Regarding August 13th
Planning Board Meeting 

On August 13, 2018 at 6:30 p.m., the Middletown Planning Board is holding a special meeting for the sole purpose of conducting a master plan conformance review of the Circus Liquors Redevelopment Plan, which is the same process followed for any zoning amendments. This is not a hearing on the approval of the Redevelopment Plan, nor is it a site plan hearing, which can only take place after Redevelopment Plan adoption, the designation of a redeveloper, and the filing of a complete site plan application by the designated redeveloper.
The current PD zoning and approved General Development Plan of the Circus Liquor’s site that resulted from a decade’s worth of litigation, allows for 600,000 square feet of commercial development and over 400 units of housing. The proposed Redevelopment Plan reduces the intensity of the current zoning while imposing significantly more requirements on any prospective redeveloper that they will be bound to follow through the required entry of a Redevelopment Agreement.
For additional information on the proposed Redevelopment Plan, please click HERE to view the presentation publicly presented by the Township’s Redevelopment Planner on July 16, 2018.
