11 Things People Want to See Happen in Manalapan In 2014

Upping and lowering speed limits, a new paved path at the Rec Center and a pool club is on the list.

A paved path at the rec center would be nice, said one resident.

On Tuesday we asked Manalapan Patch Facebook readers to comment on "It's a new year, and a chance for improvements. What changes do you want to see in town?" 

Here is what they said: 

  • A higher speed limit in Englishtown LOL.
  • Being able to blow leaves into the street and have them picked up!
  • Would love to see a paved walking trail at the Recreation Center/Park.
  • Street cleaning to resume - so much trash on our roads!
  • A traffic light on Symmes right before Route 9 where everyone goes through the stop sign coming out of the parking lot across from the park-and-ride. I have seen people not even think about stopping and go barreling thru doing 30.
  • More than 35 mph on Kozloski Road!!!
  • We need a traffic light at Pension Rd. and Gordon's Corner Rd. The accidents can be fatal!
  • Raceway Park court order enforced.
  • Higher speed limits on side roads of Englishtown or actually enforce ones that are posted.
  • Have the park on Manor Drive renovated.
  • Wish we had a beautiful pool club like Howell Pointe Swim Club!!!

Memo to those asking for street cleaning: buy a broom and a shovel.

Seriously?? What you dont like your job???

Geneen, if your comment is a response to mine, I have to report that I don't understand it.

Well i simply made a comment about street cleaning b/c sewers are loaded with debris and just coincidentally your comment looked as a mockery to me.

Geneen, my comment, while sarcastic, was not intended to be taken as a personal mockery. That being said, I am serious. The streets of this town are generally clean but there is occasional litter and of course leaves that accumulate. I have a storm catch basin in front of my house that I periodically sweep clean. If I don't, the leaves clog the grate and the backed up storm water accumulates in front of my driveway. It's really not that hard to keep it clean. Adding what I consider a superfluous service along with added property tax to support that service is not desirable.
