From the Mayor Josh Keenan

If you have any questions or concerms you can email me @

Dear Fellow Residents,

Let me begin by wishing you and your families a very blessed and joyous holiday season as our year comes to a close and we look forward to 2018!
In my first two years as your Mayor, we have seen great strides and change coming to Stratford.

The former Bradlees has been sold and the new owner ,Brandywine, is beginning their work in changing the 22 acre site. You can already see the Hargrove demolition sign posted at the former movie theater/buffet. This will become a new Royal Farms 24/7 convenient store and gas station. As well the owner of the Laurel Mills center has his engineer working on the plans guided by Council for new townhomes and a new retail center closer to

Warwick Road. Finally, the former Academy on Laurel Road will become a senior living community. These sites will help boost Stratford in economic change and much needed tax relief to you.
I would like to thank our dedicated employees who assist my office and the residents daily. They continue to keep you safe during difficult times and answer your questions and concerns as well keeping our town looking good!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to the staff at Borough Hall (783-0600) if you have a question, or 24/7 the police (783-4900) or during business hours (783-8616). I hear so many residents commenting they don’t want to bother the police. The police are there for you: please call them. Our annual Fall Festival was a success with a beautiful day for all. Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event happen.

I am so glad to call Stratford my home for over 50 years! Thank you for your kind words of encouragement and I am glad to serve each and every one of you.

Your proud Mayor,
Josh Keenan
