TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The Milltown Revitalization Committee promotes community pride by
completing beautification projects funded by grants, organizing the annual
Pride in Milltown Day, and by supporting the efforts of other Borough
groups and citizens working to enhance the community.
The group has been an official body of the local government since January
1988 when it was accepted by the Milltown Borough Council during its
annual organizational meeting. Originally called the Main Street
Revitalization Committee, the group soon renamed itself the Milltown
Revitalization Committee so it could address the needs of the whole town.
The Committee has 10 appointed members including local business owners and
private citizens who recognize that even the best community needs constant
attention to remain prosperous. It also has volunteer members who assist
with special projects and events. The Committee meets the second Wednesday
of every month at 7pm in Borough Hall. Residents are always welcome.
Revitalizing our Main Street remains a focus of the Committee, which has
petitioned the State of New Jersey for "Town Center Designation". The
designation, if granted by the State Planning Commission, would give
Milltown priority status when applying for various county, state and
federal grants for downtown improvements.
In addition, the current Committee Chairperson has completed the Downtown
Revitalization Institute. Run by the New Jersey Department of Community
Affairs, this quarterly program offers training on utilizing local
resources, developing the image of a community's business district and
promoting it in economical ways.
If you have suggestions
or would like to volunteer on the committee, please contact us at:

As the Committee moves forward, its intention is to support the
redevelopment of Ford Avenue, retain current Main Street businesses,

"The Greatest Little Town In
- David B. Crabiel
February 19, 2009
- Does anybody really know what time it is? Well, the Milltown
Revitalization Committee does. And soon, everyone in Milltown will,
thanks to the Revitalization Committee's latest project: A Victorian
street clock which will be placed in the center of Milltown.
The seventeen-foot Victorian-style street clock, which will be
placed at the intersection of Main Street and Washington Avenue,
seemed like a natural fit for the surroundings, according to Bob
Belloff, the Committee's chairperson. "We've been reminded lately
just how much Milltown residents love the artifacts of a simpler,
bygone era. This project provides a lasting reminder of that era,
and something very new as well: a very solidly built,
technologically advanced, and beautiful, functional timepiece that
will last for decades and provide a service to the residents of
The clock will be funded by private sponsorships which the
Revitalization Committee will be soliciting. Rewards for
sponsorships include fully working miniature replicas of the clock,
and the inscription of sponsor's names on the base of the town
clock. "The names on the clock will be seen and remembered for
generations", Belloff said. "Years from now, kids and grandkids will
walk to school, and point their family name out to their friends.
It's a great way for a family to leave a lasting legacy and show
their pride in our Borough." The total cost is anticipated to be
$40,000, $10,000 of which has been provided by the Committee. "We're
an all-volunteer organization, and our activities are funded
entirely by the monies raised through Milltown Day, which takes
place every October", Belloff said. "Some of the projects we have
funded include the planters, benches, and trash receptacles on Main
Street; the Victorian light poles at Borough Hall and the Mill Pond
Park; and the holiday lights which adorn Main Street and Washington
Avenue every winter. We see this clock as our most exciting project
to date, and hope to undertake other projects to accentuate and
complement its presence."
Stephanie Taglietta, Revitalization Committee member and licensed
ERA Realtor, says, "Local communities like Metuchen, Cranford, and
Freehold have used similar clocks as centerpieces of their
revitalization efforts with great success. Projects like this make a
downtown more attractive and appealing to residents and
out-of-towners alike. They help businesses increase their revenue
and homeowners to increase the value of their homes. It's really an
investment that will reap benefits for all of Milltown."
The Committee has
created a website devoted to the clock project at
www.milltownclockproject.org. In addition, they're always on the
lookout for more volunteers. Meetings take place at 7:00pm on the
second Wednesday of each month, at Borough Hall.
