Transit-oriented development

"Smart Growth" in Morristown
"Smart Growth" in Morristown

Morristown has been one of the leading New Jersey municipalities in terms of implementing transit-oriented development. The administration of Governor of New Jersey Jim McGreevey embraced "smart growth" as a way of curing New Jersey’s ills caused by sprawling development. Morristown was one of the first five “transit villages” designated in New Jersey in 2000. In 1999, Morristown changed its zoning code to designate the area around the train station as a “Transit Village Core” for mixed-use. The designation was at least partly responsible for a development frenzy that includes plans for several mixed-use condominium developments with asking prices ranging from $600,000 to over $1,000,000 per unit. As a town with New Jersey Transit rail service at the Morristown station, it benefited from shortened commuting times to New York City due to the "Midtown Direct" service New Jersey Transit instituted in the 1990s.
