City of Lambertville Continuing to Hold Virtual Roundtable Discussions as part of planning for potential re-openings

May 14th 2020 

Lambertville, NJ – City of Lambertville officials are holding additional virtual business roundtables on May 14th and May 16th as part of a strategic plan to prepare for the potential reopening of businesses over the spring and summer. Although local stakeholders have been working together on all of the challenges of the last few months, over the last few weeks attention has turned to what proactively should be done to prepare for potential re-openings and the influx of summer tourism to Lambertville.

City officials have begun working alongside local businesses and other stakeholders to ensure that all possible details are thought through and adequate preparations are made. The goal is to allow the downtown to be the incredible destination it usually is - moving forward in a way that helps bring some business back to the downtown, while keeping visitors, business owners, and the entire community safe. The first virtual business roundtable was hosted by Lambertville on May 9th, and feedback from these have already begun to be integrated into the City’s plans.
