Pequannock Walkable Communities Plan Available

The program, Walkable Communities, is run by the Morris County Department of Transportation and consists of a series of reviews, studies, and a workshop which culminate in a Walkable Communities Workshop Report.  The report is then made available to the municipal government as a list of recommendations about development and revision of the township going forward.

Many diverse departments and commissions participated in Pequannock's Walkable Communities Workshop.  Residents, the Environmental Commission, the Police Department, and the Department of Public Works were well represented, as well as town leadership.  Somewhat lacking was attendance by local business owners, who were alerted to the meeting, but did not attend.

The resultant document is now online for all to review: http://www.morrisdot.org/Docs/PequannockWCWSummary.pdf

Lincoln Park's Walkable Communities document (which came first) provides an excellent point of comparison: http://www.morrisdot.org/Docs/LincolnParkWCWSummary.pdf

Much thanks to Tom Andrea of the Environmental Commission (and a variety of other local activities), who spearheaded the entire project.
