The Inner Morris & Essex Strategic Corridor Plan is a joint effort between Together North Jersey, the municipalities of Newark, East Orange, Orange, and West Orange, Greater Newark LISC and the Joseph C. Cornwall Center for Metropolitan Studies.  The objective of this effort is to discover how the communities can best take advantage of the transportation resources to connect to jobs and other opportunities, identify the critical links that need to be strengthened within these communities, identify the special places that make each community unique, and identify the common issues and challenges that these communities face.

The second public workshop for “Inner M&E Strategic Corridor Plan” will be held on Monday, April 15, and will present an opportunity for county residents and members of the public to weigh in on the future of the transit corridor that stretches from the Newark Broad Street Station Area through the Oranges to the Highland Avenue Station Area.

Workshop topics will include developing a unified vision for the future of the corridor; considering how abandoned properties can be reinvented; discussing ways to improve how people move along the corridor and how it connects them; and how to ensure a strong economic future for the corridor.

Together North Jersey is a collaborative partnership dedicated to strengthening the region’s economy and improving access to good jobs, quality schools, safe and stable neighborhoods, a healthy environment, fresh food, and civic and cultural resources. The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is the administrative and fiscal agent for Together North Jersey.
