What would it take to make Princeton a town where people can live and work without being dependent on motor vehicles? Can we provide affordable housing for our workforce while keeping the historic character of Princeton? What infrastructure improvements are necessary to allow more people to use active transportation – and how can we get those improvements? These are the questions that motivate ‘Walkable Princeton’, and if they interest you too, why not consider getting together with us at our next meet-up on Thursday, August 1?
Our last happy hour was struck by a sudden tempest, which put paid to our plans for a relaxed outdoor setting at the Clocktower Cabana. This time, we are getting together in a Princeton institution, which also happens to feature a large amount of indoor space in case of inclement weather.
