Downtown Hightstown Walkability

Thursday, May 28 by sandy

On May 28, a team of 20 volunteers evaluated over 120 intersections, 360 crossings and a majority of sidewalks in Hightstown. The team was supported by DowntownHightstown.org, the Hightstown Parks and Recreation Department and Mayor Bob Patten.

The team mapped all of the crossings before the event. Volunteers have since helped to enter all of the data from the assessment and are in the process of naming many hundreds of photos, each of which represents a needed improvement. This data is the foundation for two objectives: 1) an online walkability map of pedestrian-friendly routes and gaps in infrastructure and 2) a prioritized list of needed improvements. The goal is to encourage people to walk more and advocate for a more walkable community.

Plainsboro Walkability Assessment

Monday, May 18 by Susan

The Safe Routes Assessment of Plainsboro Township on Saturday, May 16 was largely successful, thanks to the many volunteers we got from the community. A total of 45 volunteers in 15 teams assessed 170 intersections in Plainsboro for safety and accessibility elements. Volunteers came from WW-P High School South’s GREEN CmPS team, WW-P High School North’s Environmental Club, Vertices LLC, and of course, the WWBPA. The project was supported by a $1400 grant from McGraw-Hill, as part of their 6th annual Global Volunteer Day. More »
