Praise for West Windsor and the WWBPA

Community Walk 2010

The Bicycle Coalition of? Philadelphia has this to say about West Windsor:

“On July 19th, West Windsor Township, NJ home of Princeton Junction and Orson Wells’ Grovers Mill became the first suburban community in the DVRPC region to adopt a complete streets resolution. In some ways West Windsor Township seems to have been invaded by Martians. That would explain the miles of bike lanes and the success of the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance…. On a per-capita basis the organization is one of the most successful bicycle and pedestrian advocacy groups in the country, not too far off the pace of the San Francisco Bike Coalition. It is truly a model community for the many built-out suburbs in the region.”

The state’s Department of Transportation said:

“On July 19th, West Windsor Township became the second municipality?in New Jersey, after Montclair,?to adopt a Complete Streets Policy. In addition, Monmouth County became the first county in?the state to adopt a Complete Streets Policy?as the Board of Chosen Freeholders?passed Resolution 10-592 at their meeting on July 22nd.
Congratulations and a big thank you from all of us at the NJDOT Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs to all of?you who worked so hard to make this happen!”

The WWBPA thanks all our members for their support and encourages friends to become members and swell the ranks. Our thanks as well to the West Windsor Council and administration for supporting Complete Streets.
