“We look forward to this major waterfront upgrade on Sinatra Drive, and I appreciate everyone who took the time to provide their feedback already,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“As a part of our community-based approach, I ask residents to provide a second round of input, so we can create the best possible design that our city can be proud of for years to come.”

The online survey is available here and will be active until Thursday, June 16th, at 8 p.m.

The conceptual designs for the redesign of Sinatra Drive were initially presented to the public at a May community meeting, are based on public feedback gathered through stakeholder meetings and an online survey.

The over 1,200 respondents of the initial online survey indicated that the top five priorities for the redesign of Sinatra Drive were installing green landscaping along the corridor, ensuring safe bicycle circulation, improving the streetscape and adding street furniture, improving the safety of pedestrian crossings, and calming traffic on Sinatra Drive.

The redesign of Sinatra Drive, which will be funded in part by $1.2 million in grant funding from the New Jersey Department of Transportation, will incorporate Vision Zero strategies and green infrastructure to beautify the roadway and absorb rainwater.

The project team will use feedback gathered from the second survey and the May community meeting to create a refined concept design that will be presented to the public later this summer.

Additionally information about the project can be found here.
