Bordentown City inducted into Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia

    The one-square-mile historic Bordentown City was added into the Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia, a program aimed at helping homeowners rediscover older towns as places to live, work and play.

    According to The Times of Trenton, the city was inducted Wednesday.

    The program was created by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.

    According to the report, it has singled out 100 communities across the nine-county region in Pennsylvania and New Jersey based on transit, accessibility, future development and employment.

    Bordentown City was nominated by the Burlington County Department of Economic Development and Regional Planning.
