The town is getting a $25,000 grant to create some shade.
Morristown was one of four municipalities in the state, and the only one in Morris County, to get a $25,000 Sustainable Jersey grant from the state League of Municipalities. The program recognizes efforts made by towns to become more environmentally friendly by implementing programs such as those that reduce greenhouse gases, increase recycling, and promote walking and bicycling.
The grant will be awarded to the Morristown Partnership, the local business development group. Paul Miller, director of Sustainablity Programs at the Partnership, who wrote the grant, said the town will use the money to enhance its urban tree canopy project.
