Outreach Feedback

Speeds in Downtown area too high

  • Poor maintenance of sidewalks & properties is major concern
  • Attracting the right businesses
  • Perception that I-78 underpass is unsafe (lighting, fencing, maintenance) and a barrier to Downtown
  • Clear traffic direction at the Morris/Mountain Intersection
  • Identification and maintenance of parking
