Update: Participation in the survey was under 30% of the business-owner members (members who were elected officials and employee representatives of larger businesess choose not to participate) so the Chamber has elected to not submit the detailed response as a position of the Tenafly Chamber. The analysis, survey response and commentary on the DEIS plan submitted can be seen under the tab above.
The Chamber is working on a response to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Light Rail. We are surveying all members to be able to accurately report how the Tenafly NJ Chamber of Commerce views the possible coming of light rail to Tenafly. MUCH more importantly, we are examining in detail plans for dealing with town issues such as traffic and reduced access to businesses during construction should light rail come to Tenafly. We are developing specific alternatives to plans in the DEIS that impact Tenafly businesses.
If you are a Chamber member, please take the survey and submit any suggestions you have for improving light rail’s impact on your business.
If you are not a member and have a specific suggestion, please feel free to let us know in the comments. Better yet – join the Chamber!
