[VIDEO] Princeton Celebrates Historic Consolidation

Residents and officials gathered on New Year's Day to celebrate a unified Princeton.

The consolidation of Princeton caps a nearly 60-year history.

Prior to the November 2011 vote to approve the merger of the two Princeton, citizens had rejected three previous referendums (in 1953, 1979 and 1996).

The merger is the first major municipal consolidation in the state of New Jersey in over half a century, reducing the number of municipalities in the state to 565, and serving as a potential model for other mergers.
