Main Street Revitalization & Pedestrian Safety Grant

posted Sep 23, 2016, 6:55 PM by Anthony Pisano   [ updated Oct 12, 2016, 1:56 PM by Anthony Pisano ]
The Town of Boonton is applying for grant money to make physical and pedestrian safety improvements to our historic Main Street (lighting, sidewalks, benches, signage, crosswalk enhancement, etc).  The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) was established by Congress and is funded through a set-aside of the Federal-aid Highway Program. TAP provides federal funds for community based "non-traditional" projects designed to strengthen the cultural, aesthetic and environmental aspects of the nation's intermodal system. Download the Grant Info Binder and renderings below to learn more.
 

We hope you will lend your voice of support.  Displays that include conceptual drawings, a petition, and additional grant information can be viewed in the Town Hall lobby or at the Boonton Main Street, Inc. office (620 Main Street) now through October 28th, 2016. 

By singing our on-line petition (link below), you are in favor of the proposed transportation and pedestrian safety enhancements including streetscape amenities and pedestrian safety impacts along and near the town’s Main Street business district.  You also agree that this project will greatly enhance the appearance of those areas, as well as provide for greater pedestrian safety and increased investment in the community.

SIGN HERE

The TAP application itself including petition signatures is due November 10th, 2016.  That means your signature of support is due October 28th, 2016 using either the paper version (Town Hall / BMS office) or on-line version above.
