County hosts Public Information Session in Tinton Falls
Residents and County officials discuss next steps

TINTON FALLS, NJ – On Aug. 1, the County of Monmouth held a Public Information Session regarding the Concept Study for the Hope Road and Hance Avenue intersections with Sycamore Avenue in the Tinton Falls Borough Hall.

More than one hundred residents and local officials attended the session hosted by Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Lillian G. Burry.

“I was pleased with the progress we made last night while speaking with the residents of Tinton Falls,” said Director Arnone. “Listening to the concerns and suggestions of those who live in the area will help us develop a plan that will maintain the high quality of life these residents deserve while, at the same time, improving the safety of the intersection. The County’s plan is still very much conceptual in nature with room to change after listening to many different suggestions last night. I look forward to continuing an open dialogue with the residents of Tinton Falls.”

Every one that attended the meeting was offered an opportunity to speak at the meeting and voice any concerns or offer insights and suggestions for the future of the intersection.

“There were certainly misconceptions about the current status and future plans of the intersection that needed to be discussed,” said Deputy Director Burry. “The County has always looked to the municipalities to relay the sentiments of their residents. There needs to be better communication between the public and Tinton Falls council moving forward.”

“The next steps are contacting the NJ Department of Transportation Commissioner regarding speed limits and taking everyone’s thoughts and ideas into consideration as County Engineers work on creating a plan for the intersection,” added Director Arnone.
