Rail Group Hears City Plans
The event was the bi-monthly meeting of the Raritan Valley Rail Coalition, which is made up of officials and residents of Middlesex, Somerset, Union and Hunterdon counties. Transit villages are a hot topic along the Raritan Valley Line and Plainfield wants to have four of them.
About an hour before the 8:15 a.m. meeting, Plaintalker was told it was canceled. Just to make sure, fellow blogger Maria Pellum and I went to Westfield anyway. Blogger Dan Damon was also told it was canceled, but he also showed up.
Jacques Howard gave the presentation and I ended up writing a news story on it for the Courier, earning a few dollars to finance my next shopping foray to Westfield.
Check The Crescent Times and Dan’s blog to see their takes on the event.
I enjoyed seeing an egret in Mindowaskin Park and browsing in some new stores after the meeting.
