Background
A Partnering meeting was held in June 2001. Participants included the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), other government agencies, local officials, utility companies, transit agencies and chambers of commerce. They met to improve communication, identify special related needs and cost reductions.

Based on community input received at the Partnering Session - as well as through responses to written surveys, this web site, and the project information telephone line - the following areas of concern emerged: planning for the effects on local neighborhood traffic patterns; designing noise mitigation measures that fit into the community context; and keeping the community informed about potential residential and business re-locations.

Community Liaison Committee
To develop specific strategies to address these concerns, NJDOT formed the Community Liaison Committee (CLC), consisting of the mayors and other key officials from Clifton, Lyndhurst and Rutherford; citizen representatives from each of the three municipalities; representatives of the Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce, Meadowlink Commuter Services agency, and NJ TRANSIT's Bus Planning Division and leaders of the NJDOT Project Team.
