Reminder: Final days to weigh in on Morristown parklet proposal

Would downtown Morristown benefit from having a “parklet”?  (Think of a café or art space that fills a couple of parking spaces.)

A consortium called Together North Jersey wants your opinion.  An online survey runs through Feb. 9, 2014, so now is the time to speak up.

Town planners and Sustainable Morristown held a workshop last month, but winter complicated matters.

It should be noted that any parklets are intended strictly as warm-weather ventures. Assuming, of course, that warm weather ever returns to North America.



  1. Virginia Faulkner says:

    I think that the idea of removing parking spaces for seating areas is ridiculous. Instead of doing this, why not look at places where additional seating could be installed without removing parking spaces?

    On South Street the Vail Mansion grounds, the library, and church properties suggest themselves.
    On Morris Street, the railroad station has possibilities.
    On Washington Street the new park by Schuyler Place and the courthouse seem reasonable.
    Many sidewalks in Morristown are wide enough to simply add more benches.
    Certainly there is no need for additional “parklets” around the Green, which already has significant seating.

  2. Margret Brady says:

    Sometimes a little common sense goes a long way. I must agree with Virginia.
