At the BHP Neighborhood Watch Meeting on June 18th, the Galloway Township Manager, Susan Jacobucci, Chief of Police Patrick Moran and our Blue Heron Pines police liaison, Patrolman Carolyn Buckley attended the meeting. The Township Manager Susan Jacobucci, took the picture below and posted it on the Galloway Township Facebook page with the following article:

NEWS YOU CAN USE - Neighborhood Watch Groups
Generally, well run and maintained Neighborhood Watch Groups reduce, or at the very least deter, crime in their area of operation. Last night, I had the privilege of meeting the Galloway Blue Heron Pines Neighborhood Watch group. Chief Pat Moran and Officer Carolyn Buckley met with the group to go over ongoing concerns and to address questions. With an active membership, the Blue Heron group not only patrols their neighborhood but also offers helpful tips to the residents to deter crime. Thank you, Blue Heron Neighborhood Watch for helping keep Galloway safe.

Our BHP Neighborhood Watch Team consists of: John De Marco, Maurice Shepherd, Ron Bloom, Bob Mueller, Ron Tutunjian, Bill Reilly, Greg Salazar, Tom Kuhar, Don Dreby, Gary Middleton, Kerri Musto, and Dom Flora, Bob Coster, Al Stoughton, Gene McCann, and Larry O'Leary.  Thank you team!


Looking to Dispose of an Old Cell Phone?

Greg and Evelyn Salazar are traveling to the Philippines in October and want to bring something that will help the people of the Philippines maintain communication if calamity should occur.  Functioning  T-Mobile, AT&T or Samsung Cell Phones are cell phone types that they can bring. If you have old, outdated, flip or smartphones that you no longer need, please contact Greg.

BHP Highway Cleanup Crew!

As committee leader Alan Schmidt always says, "no matter how much we pick up, the stuff just keeps coming back!"  Thanks to the dedicated volunteer teamwork of the BHP Cleanup Crew, the roadways around our community remain as clean as possible as we battle society's unfortunate ability to litter in a beautiful area without feeling guilty.  Below you will find a few photos of some of the Friday and Saturday Crew, lead by Alan with incredible support from his wife Kathy.  New volunteers are always welcomed to join.  The next cleanup dates are Friday July 11 for Tilton Rd. cleanup (meet at the HOA Clubhouse between 8:30 and 9, get golf carts donated by BHP Golf Club, and hit the road),  and Saturday July 12 we'll meet again between 8:30 and 9 at the BHP HOA clubhouse, enjoy snacks provided by a team member, and then take care of business along Racetrack/Leipzig RDs.

Friday Crew: Jim Young, Joe Martelli, Alan Schmidt, Gene McCann, John Valek, Allan Sciscio, Joyce Bailey, Herb Cunitz (Kathy Schmidt taking photo!).  Also, there have been many others who have supported on Fridays not shown here and we sincerely thank them.

Saturday Crew: Jay McCoog, Jim Young, Alan Schmidt, Margaret Martelli, Joe Martelli, Bill Miles, Kathy Schmidt, Rae Smith, and Bob Smith.  Also, there have been many others who have supported on Saturdays not shown here and we thank them also.

On a recent Friday/Saturday trash pickup, an unimaginable amount of litter was picked up by the crew.  Can you imagine what our surrounding areas would look like if the crew did not tackle this problem on a monthly basis!  Thanks to Alan and Kathy Schmidt for keeping the crew together and remaining active and dedicated to our community.


Galloway Police Alert to the Community

From Galloway Police, PTL. Carolyn Buckley: "You may have read in the paper that we have been having many vehicles broken into overnight in Galloway.  These cars were unlocked in every call that we handled, so although there haven't been any burglaries to motor vehicles in the Blue Heron Pines neighborhood, it is just a friendly reminder to all that everyone should make sure that their vehicles are secured every night and that valuables are not left in plain sight.”

Press Release - Weather Disaster Preparedness!

Attention Neighbors, BHP resident Dolores McElhatton who works for Atlantic County Gov't as a part time librarian at the Egg Harbor City Branch received the following information that may be beneficial to all.

County Resources Help Residents Prepare for Snow/Ice, Heat, Hurricanes and More
 

Residents are urged to take this opportunity to check and replenish disaster supply kits, create and/or review family emergency plans including preparations for pets, review evacuation routes and locate contact information for their municipal emergency management offices. All of this information and more is available on the county’s emergency information and resource website at www.ReadyAtlantic.org.
 

Residents and individuals with properties or businesses in Atlantic County are also strongly encouraged to register with the county’s Community Notification System. Introduced in 2008 the system originally provided emergency alerts to landline telephone numbers only. Since then the system has been upgraded to include cell phone numbers and Voice Over Internet Protocols (VOIP) for those who choose to register them. The system currently includes 205,344 numbers from the Verizon phone system’s 9-1-1 database as well as 6,500 self-registered numbers. The Community Notification System can accommodate a primary and secondary phone number (i.e. home and cell) as well as two email addresses per account.
 

Residents who are registered through the Atlantic County Community Notification System can also receive direct alerts from the National Weather Service to their cell phones. This important feature helps to keep the public aware of potentially dangerous weather conditions, such as severe heat or storm activity, regardless of time of day or location.

BHP Pet Policy

In accordance with safety requirements, common courtesy, community restrictions, and township ordinances, dogs and pets may not run freely throughout the community.  It is essential that each homeowner provide for acceptable containment and restraint of pets within the confines of their own property.

All dogs and pets must be kept leashed and under control when exercising in the common areas of the community and should not be permitted to trespass on private property.

Please always pick up after your pets ! Animal waste contains high concentration of bacteria and disease causing microorganisms that can cause health concerns. Galloway Township requires homeowners to immediately and properly dispose of their pets solid waste from any public or private property. All dog walkers must dispose of their dogs waste (have plastic bag ready) since walking paths (sidewalks) are on public and private property. Dog walkers who use the BHP sidewalks should not allow their pets to urinate or defecate on your neighbors lawns or the grass strip between the sidewalk and the street. Please curb your dogs, or your back yards. The grass strip between the sidewalk and street is maintained by the landscape company and is part of your neighbors lawns. No animals shall be allowed to run loose at any time and owners must keep their subject property free and clear of any waste generated by the animal. Fines will be assessed to homeowners in violation of this policy.

The number of household pets (dogs and/or cats) cannot exceed two (2).
