Email the Governor to support Transit Village in North Brunswick
Arriving at the Future.
Now that J&J is gone, what will North Brunswick look like in 50 or 100 years?
It is important that YOUR voice be heard! Let Governor Christie and his administration know that you support the redevelopment of the Johnson and Johnson tract into a train station and an authentic new North Brunswick town center, often referred to as a Transit Village.
The State of New Jersey needs to invest our tax dollars into transit infrastructure that helps get commuters off the roads, stops suburban sprawl, stops global warming and treats our environment with respect. Smart land-use planning for the future is what we must do to change the unsustainable patterns of the past. We need to change the way we live to sustain a quality of life for future generations. This proposal is an opportunity to create the first new sustainable American town center to be built for the way we must live in the 21st century.
The North Brunswick Transit Village will:
- Create a great place for North Brunswick with a train station, library and town center that will become a focal point for a better quality of life in town.
- Create an economic engine for New Jersey that can produce substantial economic growth.
- Add a new NJ TRANSIT train station that will provide increased opportunity to commute by train rather than car, offer State residents access to more employment opportunities, offer a walkable downtown with a desirable downtown lifestyle living option, and greatly increase the availability of residential construction that supports an educated, high wage, vibrant work force.
- Make traffic BETTER in New Jersey. Building a train station in North Brunswick will be the catalyst for the NJ Department of Transportation to invest in local roadways to improve existing traffic problems to support the new train station.
- Save land from regional suburban sprawl, protect the environment, and provide opportunities for clean energy and water conservation. New Jersey has the greatest opportunity to Think Global. Act Local. A new transit village will reduce CO2 emissions by 80% compared to comparable suburban development, and eliminate 60,000 tons of CO2 per year. This is the equivalent of planting 12,000 acres of trees.
We need to let the Governor’s Office know that we want to make this project happen.
