Efforts of three communities
to revitalize areas to better connect their businesses, public spaces, neighborhoods and public transportation resources were highlighted at a June 6 Together North Jersey (TNJ) Transit Hub workshop at NJTPA.
The workshop marked the release of a Guidebook for Developing Transit Hub Strategic Plans
developed by the TNJ Efficient Task Force, the NJTPA and Rutgers University’s Voorhees Transportation Center. The guidebook is available for download
on the TNJ website.
The workshop showcased the work of the 2018 Transit Hub Pilot Program, which created strategic plans for the City of Passaic, Bloomfield Township, and the Borough of Dunellen in northern New Jersey. These plans were developed by the TNJ Efficient Task Force and volunteers from the Community Planning Assistance Program of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association.
Among other speakers at the workshop were Carlos Rodrigues who spoke about the pilot effort in Dunellen; Nadia Mian who spoke about the pilot at the Watsessing Avenue Station, Bloomfield; and Paul Drake who spoke about the pilot in Passaic.
