BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Township officials are looking for input from residents on two topics -- their vision for the township in the next 10 years and how they feel about the commute to New York City and other locations.

The Township is in the process of preparing a new comprehensive Master Plan in order to consolidate the residents’ visions of the community and to establish a framework for future development and growth. Residents' input is critical to updating the Master Plan and will help planners set goals and priorities for the coming years. 

Councilwoman Susan Poage said there have only been 122 responses to the survey to date and members of the Planning Board hope there will be more before the end of the month.

The other survey, which just went up on the website, is the Commuter Task Force Survey

According to the blurb on the website, the township wants to determine the “needs and satisfaction with what’s currently available, and interest in possible alternatives for train station parking and transportation to/from New York City and Hoboken.”

Councilwoman Jeanne Kingsley urged everyone to take the survey, addng “It will take less than three minutes to complete the survey, and it is really important to get the feedback” so the township can address residents’ concerns and make their commute “a little more palatable.”
