Upcoming events in June include our Broadway Healthy Corner Store event on June 12 and Shaping LB-HCN Coalition meeting on June 19 at the Office of Community & Economic Development. The most exciting news we got this month was that the City of Long Branch was awarded a 2018 SRTS Infrastructure grant of $ 230,000 based on the two walk audits we did around AAA and the Long Branch Middle School in 2016-17.  This funding will be used to build sidewalks and bike lanes and to improve the environment to help kids and residents walk and bike in the community.
