Some residents fight to keep Princeton Township from building sidewalks

Some homeowners are once again fighting to keep Princeton Township from forcing them to have sidewalks built onto their properties.

Residents along Snowden Lane between Franklin and Hamilton avenues say sidewalks will ruin the character of the neighborhood. One homeowner says a huge part of his property along with trees and bushes would have to be removed to make way for the sidewalks. Township officials argue the street needs sidewalks so children can safely walk to the local school around the corner.

Many homeowners successfully fought off the building of sidewalks in 2000 and hope to do the same this year. The Township council requested additional information from the police department, the engineering department and the townships arborist before their next meeting in October.
