This Time Bloomfield Means Business...maybe

For over a decade now, a long line of Bloomfield's town fathers -- and their sons -- have been finalizing plans to rehabilitate and rejuvenate a fading downtown.

Several months after brainstorming sessions with residents and urban planners, Tuesday's special Planning Board meeting [7pm in the Town Council Room] will give the public an extended look at the Newwork's radically revised plan for the town -- including some environmental innovations:

As momentum around ‘green building’ grows both locally and nationally, Bloomfield has the unique ability to be a leader in this movement. With environmental challenges
facing the entire country the ones that are particulerly acute in Bloomfield are Congestion, Air Quality, Flooding and Water Quality and Energy Costs.
The approach for Bloomfield will be to follow New Jersey’s Smart Growth strategies as the basis of the redevelopment take full advantage of the existing sustainable features of the redevelopment area including solar panels.

This time around, Eminent Domain will not be an issue. The public can download the complete "Vision Plan" and find updates on the planning process here.
