Special Notice for Carteret Seniors

Mayor Daniel J. Reiman

and the

Borough Council

have established a "Senior Sidewalk Rehabilitation Program"

Borough of Carteret



Dear Neighbor: I am pleased to announce that using federal C.D.B.G. grant funds, we will be able to continue our Senior Sidewalk Rehabilitation Program for 2008. The Carteret Borough Council working in conjunction with Carteret's Community Development Board has allocated funds with the specific purpose of increasing the accessibility of our sidewalks for seniors and residents with physical disabilities. Approximately $17,000 has been set aside to allow for scattered site replacement of standard sidewalk pieces. It is expected that up to 113 "cakes" will be approved for the alteration, and that Carteret will become more accommodating for the elderly and physically impaired than ever before. Each standard piece will be specified to 4' X 4' and will meet ADA standards. Approved applications will entitle the recipient to a maximum of 2 cakes. Enclosed is the corresponding application. I hope that all of our senior residents who are in need of new sidewalks will take advantage of this unique program. I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the Borough Council for their support of this Senior Sidewalk program.

"Working Together to Build a Better Carteret"

Warmest Regards,

Daniel J. Reiman

Senior Citizen Sidewalk Rehabilitation Program

As part of Mayor Daniel J. Reiman's continuing effort to maintain safe and convenient access for Carteret's Seniors and handicapped residents, C.D.B.G. funding has been allocated to implement scattered site sidewalk replacements to facilitate access to pedestrian thoroughfares. Seniors and Handicapped residents will be encouraged to submit an application to have damaged sidewalks in their neighborhood altered to meet ADA standards. The Community Development Board has determined that the funding will allow for some 113 standard slab blocks to be adapted to accommodate area residents. The end result will be a town that is as accessible for its venerable seniors as it is for other pedestrians. Mayor Reiman has stated, "We as an administration have always taken great pride in the diversity that is Carteret. There is no reason why our handicapped citizens and seniors should be an exception. They are our parents and grandparents, and most importantly our heritage, and should be able to enjoy our public spaces with as much ease as other residents." "Sidewalk Rehabilitation" applications must be completed and filed with the Office of the Mayor. Qualifying applicants are entitled to up to two "cakes" or corresponding sidewalk pads.
