Downtown Area Vision Plan

Logo: Green background with white text that reads Millburn Downtown Vision Plan

The Township of Millburn is undertaking a Vision Plan to revitalize and re-envision its Downtown Business district.  The plan will look to build upon and leverage Millburn’s history, natural resources, anchors, community institutions and organizations, and other unique qualities. The Vision Plan will provide a strategy for how Millburn’s Downtown can support its existing retail base and better position itself for future growth and long-term sustainability, and it is anticipated to serve as a foundation for future implementation.

All interested residents, property owners and other stakeholders are encouraged to attend and share their thoughts on the vision, goals and objectives for Millburn’s Downtown. There is also an online survey and brainstorming tool to help gather ideas for the Township to consider.  There will be another public survey and a second virtual workshop in late fall/early winter to present initial concepts as they are developed.

The plan is being led by a multidisciplinary team of designers, planners, and retail experts consisting of Perkins Eastman, BFJ Planning and Streetsense.
