What are the objectives of the Millburn Complete Streets initiative?
The Millburn Complete Streets project is a comprehensive initiative unanimously adopted by Resolution of the Township Committee in 2014 to address the critical issues of pedestrian safety, traffic calming and improved vitality in Downtown Millburn. It’s a direct response to overwhelming community and merchant demands to take action. It’s a way to make the downtown safer for our residents and improve our infrastructure in the long term for businesses and merchants. And, it’s a way to create a more inviting downtown experience so that Millburn can attract tenants and help our existing shops and businesses compete with other local and regional towns that have taken proactive steps to improve their downtown areas. The Township took a comprehensive, holistic approach to our Complete Streets project to avoid piece meal, band aid type improvements that have been tried unsuccessfully in the past. The Township is making a much needed investment in our downtown and our merchants that, once completed, will translate into greater economic strength and a safer place to operate in the long term.
