Develop and build consensus for Community Priorities for travel in Montclair incorporating a SAFE / Complete Streets philosophy

→ Review and Evaluate the Township’s previous planning efforts

→ Identify a SAFE CS Network for enhanced bicycle and pedestrian mobility

→ Facilitate outreach efforts to draw in stakeholders, elected officials, staff and the community at large to help build consensus for a set of street typologies and design guidelines consistent with providing safe access for all street users

→ Be adopted as an element of the Montclair Master Plan and actively used to assist design decision-making as streets are maintained, repaved, and/or otherwise improved.

Committee members set out to accomplish the following: 

→ Identify walking paths and routes and ways to encourage more walking by protecting/enhancing our pedestrian spaces

→ Identify bicycling paths and ways to encourage cycling by designating “preferred” routes and protecting/enhancing existing facilities

→ Identify ways to enhance and promote Montclair’s many transit options (trains, buses, jitneys, etc.)

→ Implement SAFE plans at little additional cost to the taxpayers of Montclair

Further details regarding recommendations made to the council are within the implementation plan. The presentation slide show and the full Montclair SAFE Complete Streets Implementation Plan are available for download.
