Notes From the Township Administrator

The fall has been very busy in the Township. Engineering staff is overseeing the Green Avenue Phase II reconstruction which includes the milling, paving, and sidewalk reconstruction from the intersection of Green Avenue and Belle Mead Griggstown Road to the intersection of Green Avenue and Staats Farm Road.

The cost of this project is approximately $770,000.00 with some of the cost being offset by a grant of $180,000 received by the Township from NJDOT. At the same time the Montgomery Road/Sycamore Lane Sidewalk project is moving towards completion, giving residents the ability to walk from the 1860 House to the Borough of Rocky Hill on a sidewalk rather than in the roadway.

Work has commenced on the Riverside/Oxbridge Wastewater Treatment plant consolidation. Eliminating two treatment plants and pumping wastewater to the Pike Brook Wastewater treatment facility reducing the total number of treatment plants operated by the Township from six to four. The regular maintenance of sewer easements and sewer lines continues throughout the year.

Construction activity continues at Country Club Meadows, in the residential and commercial/retail sections of that development. Engineering and Code Department inspectors have been kept very busy with this project as well as individual homeowner renovations. At the same time our Fire Inspectors have been working with our Volunteer Fire Companies to teach Fire Prevention in the schools in town. Madison-Marquette has opened their sales and leasing trailer on their site along Route 206 near Princeton Airport and is negotiating leases as I write this column.

Just be reminded the days are growing shorter and the deer are on the move. Be extra careful at sunrise and sunset as that is when the deer are most active. Enjoy the fall.
