Save Old York is a registered group of local residents in Northern Burlington County, New Jersey, devoted to improving the lives of the community in and around Chesterfield.

“New Jersey is proud to be known as the Garden State, but we are at risk of becoming the warehouse state” - Senator Sweeney
We want Chesterfield and our surrounding areas to retain a rural, “hometown” feeling and avoid joining other communities that have watched warehouses pop-up without the benefits that were promised by the developers.
In addition to encouraging the continuation of a golf course or other green space, we advocate for other issues that impact our community's quality of life. From help applying for grants for
better facilities, to advocating for a better environment, we hope to have a positive, lasting impact on Chesterfield and the surrounding area.

We have added an Important Resources section with links to the developer proposal, consulting documents, images, PeopleOverWarehouses, and more.
