Stormwater improvements for five Cherry Hill locales
Cherry Hill, in conjunction with the Camden County Soil Conservation District, plans to begin work this summer on improving five storm basins in the township in an effort to improve water quality and control flooding.
The five neighborhood basins to receive berms and other upgrades are Surrey Place East off Sandringham Road; Bunker Hill in the vicinity of Bunker Hill, Bobwhite and Liberty Bell Drives; Springdale Farms off Springdale Road; Cherry Run off Brick Road; and Country Walk.
The district and the township have received a $171,000 grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection to track water quality and make improvements to basins that collect water from the North Branch of the Cooper River.

Woodcrest flea market will not operate this year
The Open Aire Market, a high-end flea market started last year at the Woodcrest High Speed Line station in Cherry Hill, will not operate this year, Jake Winigrad, one of its co-owners, has confirmed.
When Winigrad and Len Ostroff, Winigrad's partner and father-in-law, started the flea market last spring, the hope was that it would replace the Garden State Park flea market, which closed when the site was sold to developers. But the new flea market apparently could not attract enough vendors.
