Earth Day Celebration in Hazlet
Hazlet residents planted new trees throughout town in celebration of Earth Day on April 23, thanks to a free tree seedling giveaway by the Hazlet Environmental Commission. The two-hour event attracted 50 people. Each took away a bundle of tree species specially selected for Hazlet's conditions. They were labeled species of Mockernut Hickory, Hackberry, Flowering Dogwood, Kousa Dogwood, Cornelian Cherry, Tulip Poplar and Willow Oak. Many were happy to nurture the seedlings in pots and return them to the Environmental Commission next year for planting. Also distributed at the event were free LED light bulbs, obtained by a grant.

Plan Advances for 8th Street Park Improvements
The Township Committee is another step closer towards its goal to renovate 8th Street Park in the West Keansburg section of Hazlet Township.

Last year, the township learned it won public funding for proposed improvements to the 3.75-acre public park at 8th Street and Brown Avenue. The project plan, created with community stakeholders, includes new playgrounds, a walkway, lighting, parking improvements, a pavilion, fencing, security system and landscaping for an estimated cost of $1.2 million.

At Tuesday’s Township Committee meeting, Mayor Michael Sachs announced the township was informed it would soon be receiving a 20-year low interest NJDEP Green Acres Program loan of $600,000, following action by the state Legislature and Governor.

“We are moving forward with this project," Sachs said. "We have just been notified within the last 48 hours that the Green Acres funding is now available for us to apply for. We are in the process now of doing the paperwork and then it will go out to bid.”

Also, in recent weeks, the township received the agreement paperwork from the Monmouth County Municipal Open Space Program. In December, Hazlet Township won a competitive $250,000 matching grant from the county. The Township's matching portion will come from the Hazlet Township Open Space Trust Fund, thereby providing a total of $500,000 towards the renovation of North Hazlet Community Park, also known as the 8th Street Park.

Mayor Sachs explained the project would not be done in pieces or scaled back.

Both funding programs require the completion of a survey report known as a Preliminary Assessment and Site Inspection (PASI). Earlier this month, the Township Committee received the required T&M Engineering report, which will be submitted with the funding agreements.

Plant a Tree in Hazlet for Earth Day
In celebration of Earth Day Weekend, the Hazlet Environmental Commission will hand out bundled tree seedlings from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 23 at the Hazlet Environmental Commission building at 399 Middle Road, Hazlet, NJ. Free, no registration is required. Bundles include labeled species of Mockernut Hickory, Hackberry, Flowering Dogwood, Kousa Dogwood, Cornelian Cherry, Tulip Poplar and Willow Oak

Seedlings are available on a first come, first served basis, come with instructions on how to store, care for, and plant the trees. The guides help residents choose the right place on a property to plant a tree while keeping in mind the tree’s full-grown size in the future. Residents should plant the seedlings within two days after pick-up to prevent the roots from drying out. The Environmental Commission encourages residents to "Adopt a Tree" to grow it for later planting at the Natco Park Community Garden. 

Tree Seedling Giveaway April 23, 2022

Hazlet Turns Out for the Bunny Parade
Hundreds of Hazlet residents happily took over Middle Road on Saturday for the second annual "Bike with a Bunny" Parade, our town's signature event to celebrate Spring together. The 1.7 mile route was from Airport Plaza to Veterans Park. The youngest cyclists launched from Middle Road School for a shorter route. Many pedaled two wheelers, but there were some riding colorful Surrey Bikes, zippy scooters, vintage cruisers or tricycles. Parents chatted as they strolled with carriages, while some pulled red wagons or pushed toddlers in plastic race cars. The parade was led by the district fire trucks, supervised by Hazlet Police and ended with adorable dancers from the Perna Dance Center. Families got to take photos with the Bunny under the flowering trees. It was a healthy, fun and exhilarating event thanks to Hazlet Recreation Dept. and the Recreation Advisory Committee volunteers.
