Way to Go, Bill Nierstedt!

As an online reader of the Star-Ledger, I was quite taken with their new magazine and spent a lot of time uploading pages. Imagine my surprise when partway through, I ran up on Page 24's interview with our own Bill Nierstedt.

Bill is the director of the Planning Division and has very enlightened views on sustainability and transit-oriented development, not to mention his advocacy of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards.

There was an Oct. 15 print version, but if you missed it, you can read it online here. Just be aware that there are tons of ads along the way.

One must respect a municipal official who not only advocates environmental principles, but actually lives them out in daily life.

Bill is only a few of the shining lights of City Hall. I am proud he has chosen to work and continue to work in Plainfield.

It took forever to find it. He is on pg 24. He is nuts! But he just became my new best friend. If he is biking that much, he must understand the importance of commuting and mass transit. ie transit village at the North Ave train station. Lets hope there is hope for Plfd.
