Transportation was identified as a key theme in the Blueprint for Action for Bound Brook and South Bound Brook. As discussed in our previous blog post, we worked with graduate students at the Rutgers Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy to do a comprehensive assessment of transportation infrastructure and walkability in the two towns.
One exciting strategy to improve walkability and sense of community is to develop murals and a parklet. This also gives us a chance to collaborate with the Bound Brook Student Ambassadors, who are part of the NJHI Next Generation Community Leaders initiative. That grant is a shared project between 4-H and Middle Earth, a member of the “Building Bridges” grant leadership team.
