The LRWP is working with the City of New Brunswick, Rutgers University and the NJDEP’s Office of Coastal and Land Use Planning on a public access plan for the City of New Brunswick’s parks along the Raritan River and the Lawrence Brook. Do you live, work or go to school in New Brunswick? Please help us by taking & distributing our survey on health and public access!
The goal of this public access project is to develop a Municipal Public Access Plan (MPAP) for the City of New Brunswick that addresses public rights of access to tidal waters with a focus on revitalizing existing waterfront parks and trails and to formulate appropriate plans for recently acquired open space and conservation areas along the Raritan River and Lawrence Brook boundaries of the City.
Public Outreach – the MPAP survey for New Brunswick
Part of this project includes a public outreach component in the form of a survey that will help us to (1) determine the public’s needs and wants as they relate to access to and use of the parks, trails and public spaces adjacent to the rivers, and (2) assess the public’s perceptions of the impacts of public access on health.
The survey is available in English and Spanish by selecting the pull-down at the top of the survey.
