Pleasantdale & Redwood sections of W. Orange need Jitney stops
This petition had 221 supporters
Per Realtor extraordinaire Deena Rubin in the NJJN "“We were losing young people to other more commutable communities that have direct train lines or jitney service to train stations in other towns,” she said. “Ultimately it affects property values if you don’t have these services to offer everybody from all parts of town. It is unacceptable." Jitney service has provided a link between Manhattan-bound commuters and residents in select neighborhoods of West Orange. Many of Rubin’s prospective clients chose to buy homes elsewhere because there was no public transportation service between their neighborhoods and railroad stations in other towns."
Could you please either sign or this petition or show up later tonight (details are below)
PLEASE COME to the town council meeting TOMORROW, TUESDAY 3/7 AT 7 PM, to show support for the Jitney The route MUST include the Redwood section.We learned only this morning, at the Realtor Town Hall with Mayor Parisi and town council members, that the planned Jitney route would service the Pleasantdale section and would NOT include the Redwood section.
As you may remember, news of the Jitney came with reports that the Jitney "would launch the service in the area off Pleasant Valley Way bordered by interstate Route 280 on the South and the Verona border on the North".
LACK OF THIS SERVICE WILL DIRECTLY AFFECT YOUR PROPERTY VALUES AND PUT YOU AT A DEFICIT
Please make every effort to SHOW UP and BE HEARD. This was a joint effort by all of us who want our COMMUNITY to THRIVE . So IF you live in Redwood we expect to see you ...but if you live in Pleasantdale, it is imperative to come show your support,and let the town council know how WE FEEL!
WHERE: 66 Main Street( municipal building behind the library) on the main floor
WHEN: 7 pm ..EVEN IF YOU'RE LATE...THE MEDIA WILL BE THERE AND NUMBERS WILL COUNT!
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO ME AT ANY TIME Deena Rubin
