Franklin Township (Somerset)
Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) Educational Workshop


It is not too late to provide input or ask questions!

Franklin Township is interested in improving public safety at Naaman Williams Memorial Park and the surrounding community.

Crime Prevention through Environmental Design Educational Workshop

On August 6, 2020, a virtual CPTED workshop focused on Naaman Williams Memorial Park and the surrounding community was led by staff at the Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC) at Rutgers University. The 1.5-hour workshop, which was widely advertised to all members of Franklin Township, hosted more than 40 participants including county and township staff and residents.  All suggestions made by participants during the workshop, as well as any additional comments by township residents received by the August 20 deadline, will be compiled by VTC into a final report that will highlight a variety of strategies to increase the overall use of the park along with improvements in real and perceived safety in the park and the surrounding community.

 

All Franklin Township residents are encouraged to view the virtual CPTED workshop recording, complete the CPTED Audit and Site Assessment form, and submit comments to the project team.
