The services provided at the Disaster Recovery Center will include telephone registration of individuals into FEMA disaster recovery process, status of application claims, opportunity to apply for loans through Small Business Administration, meet with FEMA Mitigation Specialists to identify opportunities to limit future disaster impacts, receive information and advice on other available services.

Southern New Jersey to Philadelphia Mass Transit Expansion Alternatives Analysis Project Update
Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) and Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO) have completed an extensive Alternatives Analysis (AA) study that focused on identifying transportation needs and solutions for Southern New Jersey. This study concluded in 2009 with a recommendation for light rail transit along the Conrail rail right-of-way from Glassboro to Camden.
The Project is proceeding and DRPA/PATCO is pleased to announce the new official name, the Glassboro-Camden Line (GCL).
What Happens Next?
The “scoping” process is the formal public comment phase conducted at the start of an EIS study. The primary purpose of scoping is to provide comment on the purpose and need, the alternatives to be analyzed, and the potential social, economic and environmental impacts and benefits of the project. Throughout the scoping process, active participation by the public, local community organizations and government agencies is encouraged and valued.
Individuals who require special assistance at a public meeting should contact Ms. Malaszecki at 856.223.0800 at least 3 days in advance.
The scoping comment period for the GCL will close on Thursday June 10, 2010.

Dubbed – “Beatification Day”, by Main Street Woodbury’s Design Committee, the event will take place, rain or shine, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the business district, located on Broad Street, and flowers will be planted in the various patches around the trees in the district, as well as bench staining as a way of sprucing up the current benches.
“Broad Street is the focal point for people traveling through our downtown and, it’s important that we reflect positive energy and beatification when we show off our Business District ,” said Main Street Woodbury Design Committee Chairperson Dave Magyar.
“To see our volunteers joined by those from other organizations come out and work together to contribute beauty to our downtown is a true source of pride and satisfaction,” said Main Street Woodbury Executive Director Ronda Abbruzzese.
Volunteers will meet in the city’s parking lot, behind the White House at 8 a.m. that day and, though most tools and equipment will be available, those volunteering should bring gardener’s gloves, if they have them.
For more information, call the Main Street Woodbury office at (856) 845-8655.

Unfortunately, the school budget was defeated by a vote of 359 YES to 451 NO. Therefore, we will now work with the Woodbury City Council in the next step of the budget process to see if we can reach an agreement with regard to the spending plan for the 2010-11 school year.
Thanks to all who took the time to vote yesterday!
