Report envisions Northeast Regional Initiative for modern, clean transportation in NY & NJ 

A new research paper from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), “Transportation Reimagined: A Roadmap for Clean and Modern Transportation in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Region,” provides a blueprint for modernizing congested roads and crumbling infrastructure in New York and New Jersey. Transportation Reimagined puts forth detailed policy solutions and public health and transportation facts illustrating how states in both the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic can fix outdated transportation systems.

NRDC’s report focuses on 11 states and D.C.: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. All are members of the state-led Transportation and Climate Initiative, which has worked to address clean transportation solutions since 2010. Virginia recently joined this group of states as well.

Mentoring professionals

In late June and through July, the Borough of Highland Park’s governing body served as the professional development mentor for three professionals from Africa participating in the Civic Leadership track of the Mandela Washington Fellowship Program. The Mandela Fellowships, now in their fifth year, empower young African entrepreneurs, activists, and community leaders by providing high-level academic presentations and exchanges, practical mentorships with real world training, and ample networking opportunities.
