IBID Supports City of Newark’s Bicycle Safety Initiative

More than 30 community members participated in a public meeting at the Prospect Street Firestation to talk about bicycle safety and a proposed bicycle network for the Ironbound. Hosted by the City ofNewark's Engineering Department and supported by the Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID), the effort joins a citywide pedestrian awareness program designed to make the Ironbound andNewark a safer place for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists sharing local roadways.

 

BikeIronbound is a study funded by the New Jersey Department of Transportation for the City of Newark that is focused on improving bicycle facilities in the Ironbound neighborhood making bicycling safer and easier for all residents and visitors.

“The City of Newark, Division of Traffic and Signals is very excited that over the past 7 months through participation by the Steering Committee, Stakeholders and the Community, we have been able to develop a framework for a proposed bike network throughout the Ironbound,” noted Jack M. Nata, Manager, Division of Traffic and Signals.  “After meeting with residents at our second public meeting on November 16, 2015, we can now move forward with developing several pilot projects to present to the Steering Committee and Stakeholders, and eventually to the Community at our third Public Meeting that will be held in early 2016.”

“The IBID supports all efforts to make the Ironbound District and the City of Newark a safe and welcoming place for local businesses and residents, as well as visitors drawn by our great restaurants and stores,” added Seth A. Grossman, the IBID’s Executive Director. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the City and sharing information with local stakeholders on how they can contribute to these important efforts.”
