EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ -  What would you like to see in East Brunswick?  A community center, a hockey rink, an indoor swimming pool?  The township is looking for suggestions.

Redevelopment of the township and upgrading transportation and facilities will be the focus of an upcoming meeting in which residents can ask questions and share their ideas regarding contemporary forward movement in design and construction.  The East Brunswick Redevelopment Agency will meet with residents at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, February 6 at the Community Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road in an open forum to receive input from the community.

Beforehand, the township is soliciting ideas and suggestions and concerns on its web page. Residents are asked to provide their ideas; their addresses; and their plans for attendance at the meeting.

Says the township's Economic Development Officer Jonathan Sternesky, "Due to the very high interest in this topic and our desire to ensure that all suggestions are heard, we are asking that you please follow the links to the registration page to either RSVP for the Redevelopment Public Strategy Meeting on February 6th at the Community Arts Center or to leave a suggestion if you cannot make it. 

Facebook comments will be noted, but due to the high volume of threads forming, we may miss some and recommend that you go to EastBrunswick.org/PublicStrategy to ensure that your suggestions are properly noted."

Not all requests can be addressed, but this is the time to meet the redevelopment team, learn more about progress so far and help them build a community wish list for current and future projects.

Go to eastbrunswick.org/publicstrategy by Friday, February 2 to RSVP your attendance or leave a suggestion.
