, which requires the borough to make necessary accommodations for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. While the borough will received funding from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to implement these accommodations, the FBAC came onboard to bring the arts and community into the project.
Tuesday’s meeting at the YMCA marked the first step in beginning the complete streets policy.
