Rethinking the Right-of-Way
This event, hosted by NJTOD.org, Downtown New Jersey, and NJ TRANSIT's Transit Friendly Planning (TFP) Program will bring together a panel of experts from public and private entities to discuss their experience rethinking the right-of-way (ROW). The ROW allows the movement of people, vehicles, and goods through a piece of land, such as a road, or sidewalk. In recent years, communities have re-envisioned the public ROW to reduce the amount of space dedicated to cars, and increase space for pedestrians, active transportation, public transit, and other uses. Panelists will share regional best practices on how to maximize sidewalk space, implement street closures, and program for pedestrian spaces in an effort to revitalize downtowns, as well as provide empirical evidence that rethinking the ROW works.
