When I lived elsewhere and they had a problem with the "main drag" like we do on the merged portion of 206 / 130. The city passed zoning laws requiring business owners to keep a minimum standard of cleanliness, have their signage a certain size , and keep their landscaping up. If not, it would result in fines. The street was cleaned up quickly and business surged. Every time i drive by the edgewood, the old burger king, the old buick dealer, the lot near the empire pizza or any number of unkept lots, I just see a dumpy city. This can be fixed. We don't need to be the typical NJ city. Also, the railroad does not run on the spur near the tree streets. Can we not buy that railroad overpass and have that nasty rusty thing removed? or at least have the city paint it completely. These things will always hang over bordentown until something is done.

Yes, yes, yes!!! This "little city with a lot of charm" needs to get its act together and clean up 130 and 206! As an up and coming young family in town, if it doesn't get better soon, we will be moving out! I hate taking my kids to a playground in direct view of a sex offender motel! Btown lacks a sophistication making it a real contender w/some of the nicer towns in NJ.
