It’s been a long time since we last got together with Walkable Princeton readers, so next Thursday, we’re going to have another meet-up! We’re going back to Yankee Doodle Tap room in the heart of walkable downtown Princeton to talk about ways to make Princeton more walkable and livable, with a particular focus on some of the interesting proposals that are underway in town right now. Full details are below:
- Date: Thursday, January 15, 2015
- Time: 7 pm – 9.00 pm
- Place: Yankee Doodle Tap room, Palmer Square, Princeton and see scroll-able Google map below:
- Parking: On-street parking + two parking garages on Palmer Square, which can be accessed from Hulfish St.
- Walkable: yes
- Bikeable: yes, though there’s not much dedicated bike parking. Lock up to a lamp-post.
- Transit: NJ Transit bus stop at Nassau & Witherspoon St: #605 (Montgomery – Quaker Bridge), #606 (Princeton, L-ville, Hamilton) and #655 (Princeton – Plainsboro). FreeB Commuter (around Princeton, last bus departs Princeton library in direction of Harrison St/ Princeton Shopping Center at 8.28 p.m.). Suburban Transit 100 line and Megabus direct bus link to NYC. Princeton University TigerPaWW shuttle service to Princeton Junction. Check local press for potential detours owing to teh scheduled closure of Witherspoon Street.
- Who’s invited: everybody!
- Final details: When you get inside the bar, look for our sign with the Walkable Princeton logo.
- More information? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer any of your questions!
We’re up for talking about anything, but here are some things that are happening right now that we’re particularly interested in:
- Rezoning at Witherspoon Street. What’s going on, what are the likely outcomes, and how might it help walkability?
- Affordable Housing Task Force. Again, what is the remit of this committee, and how can we help ensure that it gives a good outcome?
- Transit improvements. Things have gone quiet on the process to upgrade the Dinky, potentially with a street car or some kind of BRT. Is there any chance that we might see something happen in the near future? If not, what other options exist to improve Princeton’s transit connectivity?
Look forward to seeing some of you there! Let us know if you have any questions!
