University contributes $300,000 for Monument Drive redevelopment

Princeton University is giving the Borough of Princeton $300,000 toward the redevelopment of Monument Drive. The gift enables the Borough to proceed with the $1.1 million project that had been stalled because of a $300,000 funding gap.

"With this gift, Monument Drive finally will be able to undergo a number of much needed aesthetic, safety, pedestrian access and parking improvements" in the area of Borough Hall and the Suzanne Patterson Center, at the intersection of Nassau Street and Route 206, said Borough Mayor Marvin Reed.
