Meanwhile, however, at the urging of the Fire Department the Planning Board voted to make all new roads in the Township 24 feet wide with one foot at either edge for laid-back Belgian block or other curbing. The curbing is to protect the edge of the road from break-down and prolong the life of the road. Laid-back curbing (angled rather than straight up and down) allows a fire truck to runup over it if necessary. Th4 26 feet overall width would allow two fire trucks to pass one another, even if one is parked at somewhat of an angle to allow room to maneuver a hose to the fire hydrant.
