July 4th Events and Fireworks Cancelled

The New Berlin Activities Committee made the decision due to the lack of funds and.

“After thorough deliberation, we regretfully have to cancel this year’s Annual July 4th Celebration at the Commons in New Berlin,” the committee wrote on Sunday. “As costs continue to rise, it has become increasingly difficult to afford the caliber of a fireworks display that we strive to provide for our community. This — combined with a lack of volunteers and (limited) projected donations — has led us to the unfortunate conclusion to cancel all July 4th activities for 2024.”

New Berlin Borough has an open position for a Volunteer Zoning Hearing Board Alternate Member

The primary purpose of the zoning hearing board is to help assure fair and equitable application and administration of the zoning ordinance. The board hears appeals from the zoning officer’s determinations and grants relief from the literal enforcement of the zoning ordinance in certain hardship situations by means of a variance. The zoning hearing board also hears applications for special use and challenges to the substantive validity of ordinances.

The zoning hearing board has no legislative power; neither does the board have enforcement powers. The zoning hearing board schedules hearings on applications and appeals that come before it, takes evidence, and issues written decisions with findings of fact and conclusions of law.
