Matthew Hersh

Town planners last week acknowledged that a regular review of the Princeton Community Master Plan would need to be in concert with, or at least considered with, Princeton University's long-term plans, which are expected to have lasting impact on certain aspects of town development and infrastructure.

The 2007 review by the Master Plan Subcommittee of the Regional Planning Board of Princeton began last Thursday and will likely, at least in part, be coordinated with the goals put forth in the University's campus plan, which is now in its second year. Most particularly, the University's overall impact on housing, circulation, land use, and community goals, will have to be part of the master plan review.

The regulation offers guidelines to school principals and administrators in the case of cooperation with local police departments. It was drafted following the board's dissatisfaction with the state-mandated Memorandum of Agreement. In January the board acknowledged, rather than approved, the Memorandum from the Office of the Attorney General.
