Truck traffic is Regional, not just Local. Really, take a five minute ride to Robbinsville or Millstone, beautiful farmland as Cranbury once was. Stop listening to there out of town planners.

Lol. Take a ride down N Main, Cranbury new, Old cranbury. We have preserved tremendous amounts of farmland and kept our character because of the funds from the warehouses.

Then drive around Rt 33 in Robbinsville, drive by the Amazon center there or drive around s Brunswick, Monroe, West windsor and see the housing and school issues. Ask Monroe about their School Superintendent saying they can’t deal with the growth and need state aid, s Brunswick, West Windsor or Robbinsville residents about their school taxes and growth. Cranbury has it much better than any of those towns. When faced with opportunities to preserve land the town has done it. When faced with development the town planners for 30 plus years have taken the choice that stops housing and provides revenue to buy the land.

Lol! Kept our character. That depends on what side of town you enter from. The new townhouses, Cranbury Greens, or the Warehouses on Station road have a lot of character. Now I understand you can’t stop progress, however don’t lie and say we have kept our character.

There is no town in N.J. that has kept their “character” from 30+ years ago. It is impossible unless the area is 1 square mile and has been built from the beginning.

Are we a small town? Do we have a HS and middle school? Do we elect the same 5 member TC or have we changed like other towns? Do we have a lot of preserved space? Is our historical society still valued? Our fire and first aid volunteer?

There is a difference between growth and character. We have not stopped growth because not every farmer or developer will sell their land to the Town. The town cannot mandate no growth. Though I am sure they would like too. But where growth has happened they have done their best over 30 years to limit the impact of that growth.

Robbinsville has an Amazon warehouse that generates far more traffic than ours, because it's lots of small packages versus large furniture items like ours. Amazon even testified for ours on all the ways it would be better than the nightmare in Robbinsville. So silly example.

And Cranbury still has beautiful farmland and scenic vistas. You must be looking in the wrong places.

And neither have a school even close to as good as ours. Just look to Monroe if you want to see what prioritizing housing gets you. Total mess.

We preserved three character of the historic main street. That's pretty much it.

We preserved roughly 3,000 acres of farmland thanks to a our farmers and a well thought out master plan and our long term residents who backed farmland preservation. This land could have been sold by our farmers for a much higher prices to developers had we not taken this route, and we would be like every other surrounding town (ie., West Windsor, Monroe). So no, it is not just Main Street that has been preserved. We have preserved our farmland, our excellent school, and maintained a fiscally sound township budget.
