Montclair to Jersey City, NJ

Type: Visioning, Urban Design, Landscape Planning
Client: The Open Space Institute
Project work while employed at MNLA as a landscape designer.

A vision for a nine-mile greenway connecting eight communities through woodlands, urban, industrial and riparian environments that helped civic leaders understand the potential of the site, facilitate the purchase of the land, and served as a starting point for broader community visioning.

The plan articulates opportunities for the greenway and the communities along its path, and provides analysis of ecological, experiential, and planning aspects of the project. The analysis and visioning illustrate the incredible potential for the greenway to become a source of community pride and enjoyment.
