The Duke Farms Foundation is coming before the Hillsborough Township Planning Board on Feb. 13 to present its vision for a new dedicated pedestrian pathway, including a pedestrian bridge, as well as repaving and installation of passing areas along an existing pathway used by tram vehicles.

No variances are required, but Duke Farms Foundation will be seeking amended site plan approval for the improvements to the property on Dukes Parkway West in Hillsborough. 

According to its website, Duke Farms, more than 250,000 people have visited since re-opening in May 2012. It is open 6 days a week, all year long.  The property has nearly 20 miles of trails for hiking and biking throughout, in addition to hosting educational programs and research projects.  

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Building, 379 South Branch Road, Hillsborough.
