Sustainable Ewing Green Team

Promoting People, the Planet, and Prosperity in Ewing

Bike Advocacy

A Bike Advocacy Committee has been established as a result of the ongoing 2014 Community Visioning Process.  It was evident that there is a strong contingent within the township’s population that would like to work to promote and improve biking (as well as pedestrian) transit in Ewing.
