A resident asks how success will be measured in the new Master Plan.
A Princeton resident who works for the Regional Plan ASsociation argues that proposes town-wide changes to zoning that are idifferent from what is allowed today will enable more people to live in Princeton affordably.

I wish Frank Chmiel the best. I don’t know what happens next for him, but he deserves better than how he was treated by Princeton Public Schools. Michael FerranteCranbury
The seminary properties on Stockton Street in Princeton used to house married students. Reaidents who live nearby are calling for new development at the site to be all affodrable units instead of luxury units. They say the town has enough luxury apartment units built already or in the works.

To the Editor: In a 1983 op-ed piece in the “Washington Post”, U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan paraphrased Bernard Baruch’s famous quote, writing: There is a center in American politics. It can govern. The commission is just an example of what can be done. First, get your facts straight. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion,…
