Help chart Pennington’s course with 2025 Master Plan feedback

To the Editor:

I am a member of the Pennington Planning Board and serve on the Master Plan Committee (MPC), along with three other Board members. Andy Jackson is our chair, while Council representative Nadine Stern and Planning Board member Amy Kassler-Taub complete our membership. In addition, we have a 15-member Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) appointed by Mayor Jim Davy to assist the Planning Board in developing the Plan. 

Input from the community is a major component and requirement of the master plan development process and its ultimate adoption by the Planning Board in a public meeting. The MPC has brainstormed ways to reach Borough residents and stakeholders, providing opportunities for participation and suggestions. One of these ideas is to have steady or ongoing coverage in MercerMe, which seems to have become the most-read local publication. (Congratulations to Mary and you for that! It was so needed and is greatly appreciated!)

Master Plan updates are included in every Planning Board meeting, and these meetings usually take place on Zoom. But, whether or not you could be present, we hope to keep you in the loop about the evolution of Pennington’s Master Plan 2025.

Our most important public outreach yet will take place on April 10, Local Government Day in New Jersey. The Borough will host an Open House with representatives from the Council, boards, commissions, committees, and staff from 2 to 8pm. The Planning Board will have a special display in the front corridor of Borough Hall, outlining the 12 elements of the plan. (I have included a list of the elements below.) Planning Board, members and other volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and hand out comment cards as we seek additional public input concerning the new plan.
