What Would You Improve in New Brunswick in 2013?

If you could make a New Year's resolution for New Brunswick, what would it be?

More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.

As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in New Brunswick to make it an even better place to live?

New Brunswick is home to many active citizens who have suggested a number of things to improve city life for their respective neighborhoods. Some have asked for (and received) the right to vote for the local board of education, while others continue to ask for cooperation between the city and the community in curbing violence in city streets.

I would improve the traffic flow in downtown; transition more roads from 2-way to one-way (especially easton ave. from albany to hamilton sts]and george. sts.. I would also put in more bump-out street corners with sidewalk-level crosswalks at major intersections where there is high fot traffic and on street parking (to slow down traffic).

I would reach out to the homeless folks at the New Brunswick train station who use the lobby next to Dunkin Donuts as their bedroom. Something should be done for commuters who have to step over people on a regular basis every single day. I, personally do not give them money as I'm skeptical about what they would spend it on. Maybe if the city made it easier for them to find a bed without all the red tape, it would benefit all.
