Bloomfield Updates North Center

Complete Streets improvements to Bloomfield's North Center will beautify Broad Street and foster economic development, officials said Wednesday.

While construction has commenced, local, county and state officials held a groundbreaking ceremony at Broad and Baldwin streets to tout the work.

Essex County Freeholder Brendan Gill called himself a "big fan" of Complete Streets programs and hopes other towns follow Bloomfield's lead. "Bloomfield was one of the first towns in the state, I think, to complete a Complete Streets policy," he said. "It helps drive economic development. It has the ability to change entire neighborhoods."
