Statement From Montclair Councilman Peter Yacobellis On The Passage Of The Streets Are For Everyone (Safe)

Tonight, after several years of consideration, the Planning Board for the Township of Montclair voted 8-1 to incorporate the Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE) Complete Streets Plan into the Township Master Plan.

The SAFE Plan was commissioned four years ago by the Montclair Town Council and researched by professional engineers with community input–funded by a grant from the NJ Department of Transportation, it provides well-researched guidelines on the enhancements and improvements that could guide the long term evolution of Montclair’s streets and walkways into a safe and inviting network for all forms of transportation, notably walking and bicycling.
