Princeton group approves Memo for Dinky move

Posted on October 31, 2011

PRINCETON, N.J. — The Princeton Township Committee voted 4-0 to approve a Memorandum of Understanding with Princeton University and Princeton Borough that outlines the benefits the municipalities will receive when Princeton University moves the Dinky train station, according to the Princeton Patch.

The memorandum finds a way to preserve and improve a link to the northeast corridor rail line; improving Princeton transportation, bikeability and pedestrian safety; and providing the university with the opportunity to build its new $300 million arts campus.

Township officials said they don't want to see the Dinky moved nearly 500 feet away from the center of town, but believe the university either has a right to move the train or it would be too expensive to prove otherwise. For the full story, click here.
