This is a public notification from the Township of Wall:
Effective today all municipal parks, including the bike path and the associated parking lots, as well as all Wall Public School parks, playgrounds, and recreation facilities will be closed until further notice. Given the closure of the State and County Parks by the Governor, the Township must take this additional step to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents.
Please be reminded that all curbside bulk garbage pick-up has been suspended since March 25th. Code Enforcement is starting to place reminders at the homes where bulk trash has been placed. For your convenience, both Recycling Centers will remain open to all residents at this time. Please be advised that staff is forbidden from carrying any items. Only vehicles with valid recycling stickers are permitted to enter the Recycling Center. For general information or questions regarding obtaining a recycling sticker please call 732-449-2700 ext.5.
In addition, the Department of Public Works is continuing to cross-train employees in order to maintain the expected level of services. This has effected some recycling schedules. Please be assured that your recycling will be picked up. If the Department misses your recycling on its scheduled day please leave the can at the curbside and it will be picked up the next day.
Finally, given the duration of this pandemic, all necessary public meetings are being held remotely and are accessible by phone or computer in accordance with State guidelines on their regularly scheduled days and times. For details on specific meetings such schedule, agendas and instructions on how to participate please visit the Township’s website at wallnj.com.
We apologize for any inconvenience these issues may cause and would like to thank you for your continued diligence regarding all of the guidelines that have been issued to combat COVID-19 such as social distancing. Together and with your cooperation we will get through this unprecedented event and period of time.
AS A COMMUNITY, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT WE MAKE AN EFFORT TO KEEP IN TOUCH AND HELP EACH OTHER. FOLLOWING SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES, STAYING IN TOUCH WITH NEIGHBORS VIA TELEPHONE OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA WILL BENEFIT EVERYONE AS WE GO THROUGH THIS PERIOD.
ESPECIALLY, IF YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE LIVING ALONE – IN THAT CASE, A CHECK-IN CALL EVERY DAY OR SO WILL HELP MAKE THAT PERSON FEEL CONNECTED AND NOT SO ALONE.
Although the Clubhouse remains closed, Joe has been giving it a comprehensive cleaning, and the indoor pool is being maintained so as to avoid any problems when the Board opens it for use. Nancy is working each day. Chuck is still out following his surgery and is not expected back until at least the end

January 27, 2020 Framing work has started on the model home to be built on the property. Chuck Braun of our HOA Office has been in contact with the builder to make sure we at Four Seasons receive all the proper notifications for installation of utilities on that property and any road work that may be associated. Any utility work will require the proper street markings from the utility company.
Update 11/1/2019 A crane has been on the site all week and today it appears that the second precast foundation is going in.
There was a large crane on the property on Wednesday October 23, 2019. Chuck Braun has been in contact with Mr. Neil DuCharme, of Ralco Builders.
Mr. DuCharme provided the following information: He has started the construction on two residences on spec. One will be a model. All of the residences will feature 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, full basements, and two vehicle garages.
Chuck addressed concerns about work within the site having any impact on our community whether it be roadway closures, debris blowing off the site into FSW community, or bathroom facilities for the construction personnel.
Mr. DuCharme indicated there would be no roadway closures as all infrastructure work is done, and that he maintains clean construction sites. He also indicated that OSHA requires one(1) port-a-john for every ten (10) workers on site.
Mr. DuCharme is aware of the Township’s noise ordinance related to restrictions relating to their construction work.
Chuck did confirm that the houses will have an HOA, and that he is planning landscaping to install at the home sites.
