Sustainable Jersey is a statewide initiative that guides municipal efforts across New Jersey to reduce waste, cut green house gas emissions, and improve environmental quality.
Local governments can become certified through Sustainable Jersey and receive additional resources by fulfilling a set of actions in their communities. RideWise can help municipalities in Somerset County earn points towards Sustainable Jersey certification by assisting with actions related to transportation including, but not limited to:
- adopting a Complete Streets policy
- creating anti-idling education and enforcement
- updating circulation plans
- implementing Safe Routes to School programming
- conducting walkability and bikeability audits
