A decisive phase begins today in Cherry Hill's 15-year-long tussle over affordable housing, when the township proposes a specific number of units it should be responsible for providing and a plan to see that the homes are built. The township is to present the voluminous data for the proposal - complete with an inventory of each inch of vacant land in the township - this morning to Judge Anthony Gibson, who is supervising the township's compliance with state affordable housing laws.

An informed citizenry is the best assurance for good government. A current example of the wisdom of that philosophy is the condition in which Cherry Hill, Camden County's second-largest community, finds itself. Cherry Hill is considered a mature, upscale community. It has gained fewer than 1,000 residents since the mid-1980s, and enjoys an average household income greater than the national figure. Yet its present economic circumstance, brought about by various political calculations, is quite dire.

Cherry Hill Mayor Susan Bass Levin is expected to name a new police chief today to head the community's 125-member force. Capt. Bill Moffett, a 21-year veteran of the Cherry Hill police, is expected to be Levin's choice, according to two township officials who asked not to be identified. Moffett, a lifelong resident of Cherry Hill, would replace Chief Robert J. Tonczyczyn (pronounced ton-SES-sion), who retired this year after 32 years on the force. Levin said yesterday that she had made her decision and expected to make an announcement today, but offered no details on her choice.

The courtship is over. At its Tuesday night meeting, the Cherry Hill school board formally backed out of talks with the Merchantville school board on a plan to merge the two districts. In a unanimous vote, the board dissolved the committee formed in December to explore the move. Board member Cindy Trubin said the March passage of the $52.6 million bond issue to pay for district-wide school improvements in Cherry Hill, including 51 new elementary classrooms, rendered the merger unnecessary.

A handful of low-end motels, an abandoned bowling alley, and the site of a former synagogue are among several areas that Cherry Hill officials will soon target for redevelopment. The aging properties - the Hillside Inn, Feather Nest Inn, and Days Inn on Route 38; Baker Lanes and Inn of the Dove on Cuthbert Boulevard; America's Best Value Inn and the former Temple Emanuel synagogue on Route 70; and the former Saunders Publishing buildings on Hampton Road - have for years been considered some of the township's most underutilized real estate, officials said.

After settling in Cherry Hill in 1959, James J. Lehman began attending meetings organized by the Cherry Hill American Little League. He sat in the back for the better part of a year, waiting to offer whatever services he could. It would be something as simple as a lawn mower that would bring Mr. Lehman out to Langston Field, which at the time was on Burnt Mill Road. Sometime around 1960, the grass around the diamond needed a trim, and Mr. Lehman happened to have the equipment to do so. It was at Cherry Hill's Little League fields, now on Ashbrook Road, that Mr. Lehman would find his sanctuary for the next half-century.

On the moist green lawn, seven Republicans in dark jackets or pin-striped suits gathered at the campus of the Cherry Hill municipal center last week for a news conference kicking off their party's freeholder campaign. A few sought refuge from the muggy heat in the shade of a tree, one of many growing along the tranquil streets and driveways of this town. At first glance, this quiet, suburban setting might seem an unlikely place to launch an attack against what the GOP claims is the Democrats' traditional, urban-style political machine.

It didn't take Maria Barnaby Greenwald, the mayor of Cherry Hill, long to react to President Reagan's budget message yesterday. In no time, she was hot with rage. "I'm shocked and angry," she said, gesturing emphatically with a lighted cigarette. "I'm writing to the President tomorrow. " In his budget message, Reagan said the federal government has been too generous to many municipalities, and he singled out Cherry Hill as a prime example of a town that can do with less.
