Millburn Township Committee to Discuss Completion of Complete Streets Phase I and NJ Transit Disruption for Penn Station Commuters


MILLBURN, NJ – Tonight’s Millburn Township Committee meeting is anticipated to draw many opinions and debate over Phase I of the Complete Streets Initiative. On the agenda are three resolutions that address street paving projects.

Another downtown-related resolution on the agenda is to authorize the hiring of a consultant to assist the Township Committee with attracting appropriate businesses to downtown Millburn as well as to provide certain branding and publicity services.

Not on the agenda but a topic that is anticipated to be discussed is NJ Transit’s recent news that the Morris and Essex Line will divert its passengers this summer to allow repairs to Penn Station.  The disruption is said to last approximately eight weeks. NJ Transit authorities are planning to divert passengers to the Hoboken station, which is currently under high usage. This issue has been a top concern among residents in Millburn/Short Hills as many commute to New York City on a daily basis. Several surrounding towns like Maplewood, South Orange and Summit also are discussing alternatives for its commuting residents.

What’s unique in Millburn’s situation is that no county funds were used to construct either the parking deck in downtown Millburn or the parking lot near the Short Hills station. The decision not to accept county funds allowed only residents of the Township to legally park at these locations. Other towns, such as Summit, South Orange and Maplewood received county aid, which allows non-residents to park along with those who reside in those towns.  Millburn’s $7 million dollar parking structure, completed in 2013, was funded solely with Millburn Township dollars.  According to the South Orange Township website, residents there have a five-year waiting list for a commuter parking permit. There is no waiting period for Millburn/Short Hills residents for township commuter permits.
