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.
