A Brief Background of Complete Streets  


The Township of Millburn adopted a Complete Streets Policy outlining a series of goals and objectives to make the streets safer for pedestrians, improve traffic flow and calm traffic where appropriate, and enhance the vibrancy of our streets for pedestrians and businesses. A Complete Streets Sub-Committee, led by Mayor Ted Bourke and Committee member Ian Mount, was formed and tasked with implementing the Complete Streets Policy. Safe, well-balanced streets are good for business. The Complete Streets Initiative enhances the vibrancy of Downtown Millburn and supports the economic vitality of local business. A comprehensive Complete Streets project addressing pedestrian safety, traffic flow, intersection congestion and traffic calming is a complex process requiring thorough assessment of a myriad of factors both internal and external to our community. We are committed to taking on this challenge and addressing these critical factors to improve our downtown. We encourage residents to review the conceptual plans, ask questions and provide feedback.
