Teaneck looking for local input on bike/ped plan

The following comes to us from good folks at the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University via their New Jersey Bike Ped Listserv (Go to to sign up. It's open to all interested parties and is a great place for announcements but you won't get spammed emails everyday.)
All Teaneck residents -- especially bicyclists and pedestrians -- are encouraged to attend the Planning Board Meeting on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 at 8:00 PM at the Teaneck Municipal Building, 818 Teaneck Road for a presentation regarding the Teaneck Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Study. The plan was prepared in cooperation with both the Township of Teaneck and Bergen County, with assistance from the New Jersey Department of Transportation - Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs. The goal of the study is to increase the use of bicycle and pedestrian travel in the township, thereby improving personal health, traffic conditions, and the natural environment.

The presentation will include an overview of existing conditions, as well as the proposed recommendations for improvements in Teaneck for bicycle and pedestrian travel. Following completion of the study, the Study Task Force hopes that the plan will be adopted by the Planning Board as a component of the Teaneck Township Master Plan. All members of the public are encouraged to attend.

To obtain more information about the plan, please access the Teaneck Bicycle-Pedestrian plan Facebook page at or contact Steven Wong at
