Neighborhood Preservation Program (NPP)

The Hawthorne Gateway is a mixed-use neighborhood consisting of the Borough’s central business district, and adjoining commercial and mixed-income areas, which also incorporates public facilities such as the municipal building, the library, a NJ Transit train station, and public open space and recreational facilities. Many businesses are struggling in a post-pandemic environment, leading to businesses closing and vacancies, a trend the Borough hopes to reverse by strengthening the entire neighborhood, including the connection among residential, recreational and commercial uses.

The NPP Implementation Plan was submitted to the State by the Coordinator on February 18; we were given Final Approval on March 1, 2022. 

At the Council Meeting on March 16, 2022, a Resolution adopting the Hawthorne Implementation Plan was adopted by our Borough Council. Now the work begins!
