EAST WINDSOR: Township seeks input on bike and pedestrian study

Mayor Janice S. Mironov announced the East Windsor Township will hold a public meeting Wednesday, Feb. 24, seeking input from township residents as part of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Study to review and enhance non-vehicular opportunities throughout the township.
The meeting will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at the East Windsor Township Senior Center, 40 Lanning Boulevard. Mayor Janice Mironov, New Jersey Department of Transportation staff, and the study consultant will provide a brief presentation. Thereafter, the public is welcome to review information and draft findings, and to informally provide input.
“The plan is intended to set out a master plan for the future to enhance the bicycle and pedestrian network in our community and to make East Windsor a safer place for walking and biking,” said Mayor Mironov. “Our goal is to supplement and enrich existing pathways, trails and sidewalks within the township to provide additional opportunities which address needs and desires of our residents. Public input is an important key to this process, and it is my hope that our residents will take advantage of this opportunity”
East Windsor Township was accepted in late 2014 into the competitive Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Assistance Program, sponsored and funded through the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The program, coordinated through the NJDOT Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs provides technical and planning assistance for development of a comprehensive local bicycle and pedestrian plan.
A committee appointed by Mayor Mironov – that includes herself; Deputy Mayor Peter Yeager; council member Perry Shapiro; Planning Board Chairman Edward Kelly; Environmental Commission and Green Team Chairpman Ronald Balint; Clean Communities Vice-Chairman Gary Fournier; and Police Lieutenant Chris Jackson – worked with the NJDOT and the state consultant, Parsons-Brinckerhoff to develop the plan.
