Great streets are one of the essential elements for successful downtown revitalization and transit-oriented development. Functioning as gateway and gathering place, and conduit for residents, visitors and goods, streets must succeed on an increasing number of levels. New techniques have emerged to provide town planners and managers with an expanded set of tools to create more vibrant, multi-dimensional, and multi-modal streets. This panel will feature recent projects completed as part of the Together North Jersey Local Demonstration Project Program that highlight these new approaches, including the ongoing effort to establish a complete streets along Morris Avenue in Springfield, the Irvington Avenue Corridor connecting South Orange, Maplewood and Newark and a new guidebook for creating parklets in downtowns.
