    The Middlesex Greenway is a 3.5 mile long rails-to-trails initiative that opened in 2012 to transform the old Lehigh Valley Railroad line into a paved recreational trail suitable for walking, bicycling and jogging.   The trail runs through the municipalities of Metuchen, Edison and Woodbridge and is part of the East Coast Greenway which spans nearly 3,000 miles between Canada and Key West.

    We welcome input and feedback regarding the Middlesex Greenway in order to understand the level of awareness, use and impact it has on the community.  The results of the survey will enable recommendations and strategies so that it may become a viable, sustainable and vital trail for everyone to use and enjoy.

    The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed by clicking on this link.  (Or paste this address to your browser:  https://rutgers.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_aVne4231XdMX6m1)

    Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey as feedback is critical to the success of the Middlesex Greenway.


    • The Middlesex County Planning Board was created January 1, 1936

    • The Middlesex County Office of Planning serves as the staff of the County Planning Board. The duties and responsibilities of the County Planning Board are provided under the County Enabling Legislation  (N.J.S.A. 40:27-1).  The primary duty is to develop and oversee a comprehensive development and growth management strategy as it affects all County facilities. In the process, the Office encourages the cooperation of local municipalities. In conjunction with the Planning Board, the Office prepares and administers land development regulations.  The County Planning Board and staff perform such other duties as may be assigned by the Board of Chosen Freeholders. The Planning Board supports advisory committees to assist in the decision making process.  These committees relate to a specific function of the Board.

    • The Office of Planning is under the direction of a Director who is appointed by the Board of Chosen Freeholders, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 11A: 3-5(1).

    • Within the Office of Planning there are four Divisions:
        • Division of Administration Data Management and Technical Services
        • Division of Comprehensive Planning and the Environment
        • Division of Development Review
        • Division of Transportation

    A subcommittee of the County Planning Board, which is chaired by one of the public-at-large members, represents each Division.
