Streetscape and Corridor Revitalization,
ADLER has been appointed by the Borough of Runnemede, Camden
County, New Jersey, for the preparation of a Revitalization
Plan for the Route 168 corridor (approximately 1.1 miles) and
the Clements Bridge Road streetscape.
The goal of the Revitalization Plan was to develop an
attractive streetscape improvement program, develop a program
for establishing public parking facilities, improve pedestrian
movement along the respective streets and to local businesses,
establish a program to market and encourage new business
ventures and growth, develop improvement standards, and
facilitate voluntary contributions from local merchants and
development of this plan consisted of an evaluation of
existing land use, on and off-street parking, pedestrian
routes, and traffic characteristics; an analysis of the
existing ordinances and master plan; an analysis of overall
functional/efficiency relationship; and interactive meetings
with Borough and County Officials, merchants, residents, local
organizations, the NJDOT.
The plan summarized the findings of our evaluation and
analysis, provided recommendations as to methods and measures
to implement for revitalizing the corridors, and served as a
basis for seeking funding.
To compliment and further support the recommendations
of the Revitalization Plan, ADLER assisted the
Borough with establishing an active Beautification Committee,
enacting improvement standards and modifications to the
ordinances, enacting the position of Director of Economic
Development, and identifying and seeking additional
