LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Township of Livingston is inviting residents to participate in a discussion of Livingston’s 2017 Master Plan at the Livingston Planning Board’s public forum on Tuesday at 8 p.m. at Town Hall.
Planning Board Chairman Peter Klein encourages all members of the community to attend and share their thoughts, ideas and suggestions. According to the township, community input is critical to updating the current Master Plan, which was adopted in 2007.
The Master Plan provides a framework, or long-range vision, for the physical aspects of the Livingston community. It guides the appropriate use of land within the township in order to protect public health and safety, and promote general welfare.
All members of the community are encouraged to bring ideas about what updates or changes they want to see in Livingston; what improvements they would like or believe are critical; what is necessary or desirable in terms of improvements to housing, community facilities, retail shopping, service businesses, offices, industry, transportation, recreation, environmental protection, traffic, parking, or other physical aspects of the community.
“This is an opportunity to help shape the future of the community,” the township stated in a press release. “We encourage all to be a part of the discussion—either by attending, or by sending your recommendations in advance of the Forum to: Livingston Planning Board, Master Plan Public Forum, Livingston Town Hall, 357 S. Livingston Avenue, Livingston, NJ 07039.”
