By taking an online survey, community members will help the DCA form projects designed to revitalize and rejuvenate the area located in and around the State, Broad, Front and Warren corridors.
Anyone who completes the survey will automatically be entered into a contest to win a $25 Love Local Downtown Trenton gift card, which can be redeemed at participating merchants in downtown Trenton including 1911 Smokehouse BBQ, The Big Easy, Haute Nails & Co., Classic Books, BeSuited, Royal Cake Creations, Beauty World, and more.
Trenton was awarded a five-year NPP designation in October 2021, which includes an initial $125,000 grant to engage local residents and businesses and generate tangible change in the downtown area.
Trenton’s downtown will receive up to $125,000 a year for five years to assist with economic and community development in the area. It’s among 40 communities throughout the state to receive this designation after NPP was revived in 2019 by Gov. Phil Murphy and Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver.
The online survey allows residents and business owners to provide valuable input for the five-year NPP Implementation Plan.
Nonprofit community development and environmental organization Isles Inc. will collaborate with the city and work with a local NPP stakeholder team to produce a plan that addresses community needs and builds on city assets, according to a Dec. 8 announcement.
The deadline for completing the survey is Dec. 31 at 12:00 a.m. The survey is available in multiple languages.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
