A Message from the Mayor and Township Committee

As we get closer to the holiday season, we want to continue to assure you that throughout the public health emergency, Plainsboro continues to protect our residents, businesses and their patrons by implementing policies and regulations based on the guidelines and rules from the CDC, State of New Jersey and County of Middlesex.

Unfortunately, since mid-October, the State of New Jersey and Middlesex County have seen steady increases in COVID cases. It is imperative that we each do what we can to minimize the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing, wearing face coverings and washing our hands regularly and by modifying plans for upcoming holiday gatherings. Click here for information from the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html

At this time The NJ Department of Health is still recommending limiting non-essential inter-state travel as well as any upcoming holiday travel.

Please know that the Township of Plainsboro will continue to monitor this emerging, rapidly evolving situation, and provide updated information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance.

Be safe, protect yourself, and others and make sure you social distance, wear face coverings and wash hands regularly.

Census 2020

Please complete your US Census Questionnaire by following the links included below. Language translation is also available. Having everyone in Plainsboro counted helps determine congressional representation and is also used to allocate federal funding for social programs, road and bridge repairs, and schools. It only takes about ten minutes to complete and the benefits are enormous. The opportunity to do your part will end soon and once the US Census has closed, it will be 2030 before it happens again.

AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR RESIDENTS

Dear Plainsboro residents:

We are writing you regarding the recent difficult times our nation is facing related to injustice, inequality and fairness.

As you know, Plainsboro is a very diverse community. Our Township Committee has always seen diversity as one of the great strengths of our town. The Committee embraces and celebrates that diversity, and works to ensure we are one community, united to create an environment that is a desirable place to work, live and raise a family. We have actively been implementing this plan for many, many years, and we continue to work at it on a daily basis.

We are proud our police department follows all of the policies, procedures and guidelines established by the New Jersey Attorney General. As you may know, Governor Murphy announced his Administration’s goal of strengthening trust between police officers and the communities in New Jersey. As such, Attorney General Grewal is undertaking significant policy changes to promote the highest professional standards, including use of force reforms. We support those reforms, and in many cases, our current policies and procedures represent the best practices in policing already.

Further, our police department has been accredited by an independent organization that assists law enforcement agencies to improve their overall performance by implementing best practices. Achieving accreditation status represents a significant professional achievement and acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are sound and operationally effective. Also, please visit https://www.facebook.com/Plainsborotownshippolicedepartment/ to view a letter from Police Chief Fred Tavener.

We are steadfast in taking whatever steps are warranted by implementing policies and actions to ensure our residents can continue to live in a welcoming community where all of our residents are treated with respect and, in return, respect one another.

We must all be agents of change, and commit ourselves to that objective.

Sincerely,

Peter Cantu, Mayor
Neil J. Lewis, Deputy Mayor
David Bander, Committeeman
Nuran Nabi, Committeeman
Ed Yates, Committeeman
