We're very excited to announce a new suite of services that we're rolling out today as a beta. DO-it allows residents and businesses to report and track a variety of issues they may experience, instantly get access to data via an interactive map, and report potholes. During our beta, we're working out the kinks to these services and beginning to build them out as we begin to aggregate this data. Over time, we will be adding new services to DO-it to streamline additional services within the borough.

On June 12th, members of the Governing Body introduced a cohesive vision for the Downtown Streetscape focused on creating a sense of place and distinct personality for the Borough business district. It also celebrates business expression by specifically getting out of the way of our downtown businesses and being sure not to impose requirements upon them while beginning to develop voluntary programs to assist them. We welcome you to read the plan.
