MONTCLAIR, NJ – In the last 10 years, on average, 41 pedestrians a year have been hit by a vehicle in Montclair, and eight now have died as a result.

For residents looking to get involved in improving the statistic, they are invited to attend an open public meeting. The Township of Montclair’s Pedestrian Safety Committee is hosting a public meeting on Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of 1 Pine St., housed in the Bay Street Firehouse.

Since the committee’s October meeting, the PSC has joined forces with the Rutgers University-based traffic consultant to consolidate ideas gathered and prioritize the action plan. Findings and next steps will be shared during the Jan. 13 public meeting.
