Slide1It is with great sadness that PlanSmart NJ acknowledges the passing of long-time Board member Melvin R. Lehr.  For over twenty years Mel gave generously of his time and wisdom to PlanSmart NJ (formerly MSM Regional Council).  Mel combined his public and private sector experience to guide PlanSmart NJ through numerous initiatives including several transportation studies, two name changes, purchasing a building, and moving to Trenton.  In 2005 he co-chaired the Strategic Business Plan Committee that resulted in the launching of the Smart Growth Economy Project.  During his tenure he served as Secretary, Treasurer, and Vice Chairman.  Mel led with sound judgment, a steady hand, and a sense of fairness and desire to do what is right.
