  • Bike Advocacy – Pete Boughton. (chairperson)
    The Bike Advocacy Committee is working on promoting and improving biking (as well as pedestrian) transit in Ewing.  They are in the early stages of trying to mobilize citizen participation and have also run a pilot bike/ped audit to define the current bikeability and pedestrian friendliness of our streets.  A bike tour of Ewing is in the works to promote healthy lifestyles, raise awareness of bicycle safety and promote a more bikeable Ewing.
  • Community Gardens and local Food – Pete Boughton (chairperson)
    The Community Garden and Local Food Committee is working on reorganizing the existing community garden at Whitehead Road.  They are looking to organize all community gardens endeavors in the township under one umbrella.
