308 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE AUGUST 2019 was becoming unbearable. This effort led to formulation of a comprehensive township-wide Traffic Management Plan and the adoption of the first Traffic Management Ordinance on the east coast. This ordinance required new developments and businesses with 50 or more employees to do annual surveys and to prepare and implement traffic reduction plans to reduce peak period traffic congestion through flextime, ridesharing, vanpooling, and other efforts.” The township administration showcased their plan in Washington DC and received a three- year funding commitment for a Director of Traffic Management to oversee congestion management efforts. Several years after North Brunswick adopted its ordinance and began conducting annual surveys of major employers, the State of New Jersey adopted a similar state statute that superseded the township’s efforts. With respect to future needs and infrastructure planning, according to Womack, “The Township is beginning its 20th year of a comprehensive Brunswick Shopping Center LIDL SUPERMARKET COMING SOON!

In addition, all deficient water and sewer lines are examined and replaced as needed. And as we continue to move forward into the future, there is still more to do, as the township is exploring the possibilities of a new library, a new senior center, an indoor recreation and community center, a community pool or splash park, and additional recreation facilities to provide recreational opportunities for all residents. Last year, we had engineering plans prepared for the renovation of Babbage Park, one of our largest parks, specifically making the needs of the senior population and the special needs population a priority. We hope to move forward with this project in the near future.” Vigna concludes, “With very little vacant land other than the remainder of the transit village site, the township will continue to pursue the redevelopment of older sites with a continued focus on sustainability, regional benefit, and diversity.” PREFERRED VENDOR n Levin Management
