A Community Bulletin

A working group appointed by Princeton President Shirley M. Tilghman has endorsed the creation of an international “bridge year” program for newly admitted undergraduates and has recommended that the University launch a pilot program with 20 students as early as fall 2009.

The Township reports that the remaining Cherry Hill Road improvement work will be done in two phases. During phase I, the section between Route 206 and Stuart Road will continue to be closed to through traffic between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day, exclusive of weekends, until further notice. All phase I work, including the final paving of the roadway between Route 206 and Stuart Road, is planned to be completed by August 1, weather permitting. During phase II, residents between Route 206 and Stuart Road will have access to their homes from either Route 206 or Stuart Road. Residents living to the north of Stuart Road will have access to their homes via Cherry Valley, Ridgeview, or Stuart Roads. Residents may experience delays of a few minutes when work is proceeding in front of their driveways, or when construction equipment is operating in the roadway. Residents of Crestview Drive, Montadale Drive, and Montadale Circle may use the Iris Lane connection to gain access to Balcourt Drive during this time. Arrangements will be made for continued garbage and recycling pick-up, and mail delivery. Updates will be posted on the Township’s Road Projects website, at http://princetontwp.orglroad-projects_main.html.

Installation of a new water main along Valley Road will be discussed at a neighborhood meeting on Wednesday, July 16, at 7 p.m. in the main meeting room of the Township Municipal Building. The work is anticipated to begin in mid July and be completed by August 29, weather permitting. Representatives from the Township Engineering Department, Police Department, and the New Jersey American Water Co. will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.

Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes, Princeton Borough Councilman Andrew Koontz, and local residents will gather for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on July 16 to open the Borough’s improved and upgraded playground and recreation areas in Potts Park, located at the intersection of Tee Ar Place and Erdman Avenue. Improvements to the park include new playground equipment, a resurfaced basketball court, and the addition of asphalt paths.
