Want a say in how the “River Route” gets revitalized?
The Burlington County freeholders, in cooperation with the Burlington County Bridge Commission, have launched an initiative seeking the public’s input on efforts to reinvigorate the River Route, which encompasses a dozen towns along the Route 130/Delaware River corridor, including Delran, Cinnaminson, Riverton and Palmyra.
The freeholders first initiated the process of developing a strategic plan to revitalize the River Route in 1995. Representatives from the 12 municipalities, numerous volunteers and interested citizens participated in the planning process. Since the plan’s completion, many of its recommendations have been implemented.
“Now, 15 years after the completion of the River Route strategic plan, it is fitting that we reexamine and update the plan’s recommendations,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Leah Arter. “This survey will help us to better understand the interests of the public as we seek to continue the progress being made throughout the region.”
All those who live, work or shop in the River Route are urged to take the survey, which focuses on quality-of-life issues.
