Public Input Sought on Ridge Traffic Solution

Joint task force of Township Committee and Board of Education to gather residents' opinions.

Do you have an opinion on what's already been proposed or your own ideas on how Ridge High School should solve its persistent problem of traffic jam-ups at the school entrance every morning? Well, your chance to speak up is coming soon.

A joint task force created from members of the Bernards Township Committee and the Bernards Board of Education is holding a public meeting to collect public input on its assigned task of providing a recommendation for a safe traffic plan for morning arrival at the school.

That recommendation, which would be then presented to entire Township Committee and school board, would consider traffic patterns for pedestrians, school buses, and private vehicles, according to a release from the school board on Friday.

The meeting has been set for 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 10, in the court room at the municipal building at 1 Collyer Lane, Basking Ridge.

Members of the public are encouraged to prepare their thoughts and present their to the joint task force. Speakers are asked to be concise and limit their time to approximately five minutes, and time may not be ceded to others. The meeting will be streamed and recorded, the announcement said.

For those unable to attend, input should be emailed to jointtaskforce@bernardsboe.com.
