Act Now to Support the Essex-Hudson Greenway!
The proposed Essex-Hudson Greenway Project is a nearly nine-mile long, multi-use trail corridor following the Old Boonton Line between Montclair and Jersey City. A long-held vision of all the communities along the route, it will provide numerous transportation and recreation opportunities to residents in North Jersey.
We now have a limited window of opportunity to ensure this project becomes a reality. Your voice is the key to helping move the Greenway to the next phase before the opportunity is lost forever.
We need to let our county officials know that we support them to take the next steps to acquire the Greenway.
A letter from you today will ensure that county officials hear loud and clear that this a funding priority.
Now is the time to build on this momentum by expressing your support to The Essex and Hudson County Executives and Commissioners.
Please join us in urging your elected officials to continue their support in the coming months to ensure that this long-sought and much-needed public greenspace becomes a reality. Click through to send a letter of support to your local officials and don’t forget to share it with your friends!
Jungle Habitat Trail Expansion Approved
Tapawingo, a joint JORBA and NYNJTC project to improve the trail network adjacent to Jungle Habitat has been approved. Initially you might see some changes in the blazes, and then improved connectivity to Jungle Habitat from the old Hewitt Butler Trail. Eventually we plan on adding a new trail and making the woods roads sustainable.
