Avalon Watch Wins a Bus Shelter

Monday, January 31 by silvia

West Windsor’s planning board has told the Avalon Watch apartment complex to add a bus shelter on Clarksville Road within nine months. This came about at a planning board meeting in which the main point of contention was liability (New Jersey Transit was willing to install it and Avalon Watch was willing to maintain it but didn’t want the cost of added liability).

The WWBPA advocated for the crosswalk and refuge island that connects Avalon Watch and the shopping center and bus stop across the street, and applauds Avalon Watch resident Peter Manda for speaking up at the meeting in favor of the shelter with common-sense arguments. As he noted, residents now we stand on the hilly mound by the stop, and the bench is no help when it’s cold and wet and besides it’s too crowded or clustered there.
