To: The Governor, the Mercer County Planning Board and the West Windsor Twp Planning Board, on behalf of WW, Lawrenceville, Hamilton, Princeton and all towns that touch the Rte 1 corridor


Please SCRAP The Bridge Point 8 Industrial project. The traffic study was based on "zero scientific data" per Karl Pehnke, the engineer who has been collecting data on this tract for 17 years. This alone disqualifies the project from consideration. If his best-guess projections are accurate, it is further disqualified as none of the surrounding roads can absorb the dramatic 61.85% increase in traffic that Mr. Pehnke predicts for this industrial site, 5.5 times the size of the entire Quaker Bridge Mall lot, and built on and adjacent to flood-prone wetlands! The developer's stormwater calculations were based on ancient flood maps from 1999, NOT current flood maps! This will impact Lawrenceville, Princeton, Hamilton, South Brunswick and this entire region! Nobody wants 8 lanes of Quaker Bridge Rd, 8 lanes of Clarksville, and hundreds of big rigs, funneled through our communities and right by public schools, endangering small children and new teen drivers! If we become an industrial region, home values will drop, you'll be too scared to ride bikes or let your child walk the dog. Quality of life diminished, you'll just want to leave. All towns that touch the Rte 1 corridor, and for miles around, will all absorb the impact of this thoughtless and destructive project. Leave the Garden in Garden State! SCRAP Bridge Point 8! Commit to maintaining quality of life in West Windsor, Mercer County and our neighboring towns along the Rte 1 corridor. See update below for action steps.

Why is this important?

All surrounding towns share common arteries to and from Rte 1. This project will negatively impact towns way beyond Mercer County. Rte 1 is overburdened and frequently seizes up, funnelling traffic through our streets to circumvent accidents which will become greater in number and severity if Mr. Pehnke's professional estimates are even half correct. Separate from flooding, due to the over-paving of our state, and the toxic emissions from ever-idling trucks, there are so many more reasons why this is a terrible idea, but the most impactful are the constant flooding, and taking the entire area, beyond Mercer, and putting it regularly at a stand still so commuting becomes more horrific, toxic & deadly than it already is, while quality of life further degrades. Implore the County and State to SCRAP Bridge Point 8! There is plenty of vacant warehouse space in NJ. Why waste resources building more and paving over what's left of the Garden State? We can do great things with open space in the Garden State, with people who care about the planet and quality of life AND even ratables... Please get on board! Sign today and pass it on now, then take the action steps isted below - time is of the essence!

How it will be delivered

We will email the petition to the Mercer County Planning Board members, as well as Governor Murphy, so continue to sign and share until Bridge Point 8 is SCRAPPED!

Last night the Bridge Point 8 approval was "memorialized." It is a formality that triggers a 45 day window, within which we may file an appeal. We are building our legal response and you can rest assured that the people of the impacted communities are not standing by to allow this mammoth error in judgement to come to fruition. Please encourage others to sign this petition, and DONATE to the legal action fund. Currently the DEP and DOT are in review of the application for regulatory approvals. The DEP may have an answer in early December. We have not heard anything from the DOT. There are many potential deal breakers along the way, and this plan is so bad, it just may kill itself. We are working hard to ensure that it does. Please stay engaged if you don't want New Jersey to be known as the warehouse state. Every voice helps and every dollar engages more legal power. Please DONATE today! Keep checking for updates.

CALL-TO-ACTION: The "Garden State" is losing its identity and becoming the Warehouse State because of the Covid e-commerce boom. NJ is within a 24-hr drive of 40% of the ENTIRE NATION'S POPULATION! Let that sink in... Developers took note of this and they will work fast to box us out, faster than our legislators can agree on protections to keep the GARDEN in the Garden State. Write to the Governor, via his contact page: Ask for a moratorium on all warehouse development until NJ may establish legal protections before another project may go forward - no exceptions. Ask him to Purchase and preserve the Bridge Point 8 parcel of wetlands for open space, and to save NJ from becoming the Warehouse State! Please write him today!

URGENT EMAIL REQUEST! There is a deadline of July 29th for receiving public comment and this email address is specifically for that purpose! Please send a quick email to [email protected] and tell them to sign the NJ Warehouse Siting Guidance into law. Illustrate the need to do so by making an example of how Bridge Point 8 has blatantly disregarded all of the guidance and the result is a project that benefits no one other than the developers. Make the guidance mandated so that death and destruction will not drive us from our homes as a result of the lack of respect for the land, local businesses and the community. Stay in the fight and we can win it together!
