Bicycle Tourism a Focus for goHunterdon
Hunterdon County has long been a premier destination for bicyclists. The county’s winding, hilly and quiet back roads, quaint towns, historic sites, and scenic vistas draw bicyclists of all ages, making bicycle tourism a natural fit and a benefit to the county’s economy.
Seniors on the Go is a fun, interactive “Jeopardy” style presentation being offered by goHunterdon that explores ways for senior citizens to maintain their independence, enhance mobility and increase safety.
New Jersey law, N.J.S.A. 39:4-26, requires that motorists “Stop and Stay Stopped” for pedestrians in marked crosswalks. A sign program provided to Hunterdon municipalities helps to keep this law “top of mind” for motorists traveling in Hunterdon’s walkable communities.
The City of Lambertville has partnered with goHunterdon to conduct a “Street Smart NJ” campaign, a pedestrian safety education program aimed at reducing pedestrian-motor vehicles crashes. The campaign is taking place throughout the month of July, featuring awareness, education and enforcement of proper safety skills.
Nominations Being Accepted for NJ Smart Workplaces
Is your business a NJ Smart Workplace? goHunterdon is currently accepting nominations from Hunterdon employers to be considered for recognition through the statewide “NJ Smart Workplaces” program. The program honors companies for outstanding achievements in implementing programs that provide and promote commuting alternatives for their employees. Outstanding workplaces will be recognized at the goHunterdon Annual Meeting & Awards Breakfast in September 2019.
goHunterdon’s “Sustainable Hunterdon” initiative provides free assistance to Hunterdon municipalities and schools seeking certification under the statewide Sustainable Jersey program. Sustainable Jersey is a nonprofit organization that provides tools, training, financial incentives and certification recognition in support communities as they pursue sustainability programs.
