Thanks for Making Our Community Better

Monday, March 28 by silvia

The WWBPA’s annual meeting always includes a moment to honor individuals for their service to our community. This year’s award winners were:

George Fallat, Mercer County’s traffic engineer. George has been a big supporter of bicycle and pedestrian improvements on county roads. We can thank him for the wide shoulders on the repaved portions of Washington and Clarksville roads this past summer, the crosswalk at Avalon Watch, including the pedestrian refuge island, and support for Share the Road signs on county roads (paid for by the WWBPA and BikeFest and installed by the county), among other improvements. We also credit him with helping to facilitate the improvements at the intersection of Route 571/Princeton-Hightstown Road and Wallace and Cranbury roads. George has always been ready to listen to suggestions from the WWBPA and we look forward to working with him in the future.

Alex Drummond is West Windsor’s director of public works. His team has installed bike racks at the farmers’ market and racks and bike lockers at the train station. His crew also took down the lockers at the Howell bus station that were moved to West Windsor. None of these projects could have happened without some heavy lifting from the public works department. In addition, many share the road signs around town have been installed by public works. We can’t thank you enough for all of this.

Ken Jacobs is the head of West Windsor’s recreation department and one of the behind-the-scenes forces of BikeFest. This annual cycling extravaganza wouldn’t work as well without his help. His award was accepted on his behalf by Dan Gerstenhaber, the driving force behind BikeFest.
