Healthier Somerset: Culture of health in Bound Brook, South Bound Brook

November 27, 2017

As a response to the survey, the grant leadership team — American Lung Association of New Jersey; Family and Community Health Sciences of Rutgers Cooperative Extension; Middle-Brook Regional Health Commission; Middle Earth; and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset in Somerville — has begun a new transportation initiative.

The transportation action team is working with Walter Lane, director of the Planning Division of Somerset County, and Jeanne Herb, associate director of Environmental Analysis and Communications Group at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy of Rutgers University.

The initiative has two parts: transportation infrastructure and opportunities to increased access for active recreation. Each section will be addressed by second-year graduate students in planning at the Bloustein School as a capstone project, a requirement for graduation.
