NJDOT hosts Smart Choices workshops

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), in collaboration with the Municipal Land Use Center at The College of New Jersey and Project for Public Spaces, will host a series of workshops on combating traffic and sprawl throughout the state. The series is called New Jersey Smart Choices.

Commissioner Jack Lettiere and other officials and industry experts will cover critical topics facing New Jersey communities. They include NJDOT’s new Future in Transportation policy and its affect on land use and local transportation planning.

In addition, speakers will highlight affordable transit options and discuss strategies to discourage excessive automobile use by providing safe places to bike and walk. Workshop attendees will learn new ways to balance development, redevelopment and preservation with other aspects of transportation.
