Halloween on Montclair Ave has become a community tradition! We, the residents of Montclair Ave, are excited to host this special event! Last year, there were over 3000 Trick-or-Treaters, plus parents and younger kids.

We want the night to be safe and fun for everyone! Neighboring communities close their "Halloween Streets" to traffic--and we feel that Montclair should do the same.

We have explored ways to address this with the Township for the past three years, asking them to close the street to traffic. The Traffic Bureau responded to our most recent request by stating that street closures after dark require police presence and they don't have the budget.

We respectfully request that the Township revisit this issue and take responsibility for assuring pedestrian safety before a tragedy occurs.

    There is no reason for this street to be open to drivers during peak trick-or-treating hours. So many families and children pass through, it's better attended than most festivals in town.

    I am on Montclair resident and fully support the initiative. Technically, this is not very different than a block party, which the township readily closes the street for.
