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

Recent Improvements Enhance Community Garden

The township recently installed eight new water spouts within the Community Garden area. This will make watering individual garden plots more convenient for gardeners.

Also, to halt deer from coming into the gardens, an eight-foot tall deer fence was placed around the perimeter of the entire garden. This will eliminate the need for individual fences to be installed at each garden plot.

To prevent burrowing animals from entering underground into the garden, an 18” below ground fence was installed.

Lastly, a new single gate was mounted, making it easier for gardeners to enter and exit.

For information about obtaining a garden plot, please contact [email protected]
