Princeton Council adopt bylaws

Thomasina's will be the first business in Princeton to host a sidewalk café.

Mike Grgich of Mike Grgich Contracting is setting the cement for the temporary walkway designed for pedestrian traffic alongside the soon-to-be sidewalk café located at Thomasina’s on Bridge Street. The walkway is designed to be removable in order to be stored away during the winter and brought back out when sidewalk café season begins again.  Thomasina’s will be the first sidewalk café in Princeton.
