Engineering Bureau

Township Engineer Kim CraftThe Montclair Engineering Bureau, headed by Township Engineer Kim Craft, is responsible for design and construction management for certain capital improvements to Township streets (curbs, paving and drainage/storm sewers) and parks.

Other responsibilities of the Engineering Bureau include permitting and inspections for road openings and construction of sidewalk, curb and driveway aprons; traffic engineering and safety studies; maintenance of the official street map; and assistance to residents with engineering-related matters.

In 2009, the Township adopted a Complete Streets ordinance, which stated all Township streets will be designed, constructed and maintained to provide safe accommodations to persons of all ages and abilities.  Out of this policy commitment, the Montclair SAFE initiative was launched to highlight the Township's support for walking and bicycling through improved infrastructure and to raise awareness of the many efforts underway to make our streets safer for all road users. SAFE = Streets Are For Everyone! In addition to a needed focus on safety of pedestrians and cyclists as the most vulnerable road users; we support walking and cycling to reduce traffic congestion, promote economic development, enhance health and improve the overall quality of life in our community.
