Planning Board Hearing - October 8, 2015 Print E-mail

On Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 7:30 pm the Montville Township Planning Board will hold a public hearing in the Committee Chambers at the Township Municipal Building, 195 Changebridge Road, Montville, NJ, 07045, on an “area in need of redevelopment” study prepared on behalf of the Planning Board by Burgis Associates, Inc.  The study area that the Montville Township Committee requested the Planning Board to consider is comprised of Block 162 Lots 2 through 7 on the tax maps of the Township of Montville.  This area is located on westbound Route 46, west of Changebridge Road and south of Bloomfield Avenue.

This is the first major step forward for the Township to proactively plan for the future of the Route 46 corridor. This study will assess whether or not the study area meets the statutory criteria for designation as an “area in need of redevelopment” in accordance with state law. The goal is for the Township to use all planning tools available to holistically plan for and stimulate logical patterns of growth that are economically viable, technically feasible, and effectuate the goals, objectives, and policies in the Master Plan.

The Township is will encourage public outreach, input, and feedback throughout this process.

Any questions, comment, or concerns can be directed to the Township’s Principal Planner, Ryan Conklin.

Indian Lane Organic Gardens Re-opened - Sep 3, 2015 Print E-mail

The following message was sent to all gardeners using the organic garden site on Old Jacksonville Road on Thursday, September 3rd:


Dear Organic Garden Members,

I am writing to advise you that after the second round of environmental testing we have been advised by our environmental experts that the garden may now be reopened. It is the verbal opinion of our experts that there is enough scientific data that shows that all levels of contaminants are not just below, but are significantly below the residential standards of the DEP, which are the most stringent of guidelines. We are anticipating receiving written confirmation from our experts in support of our decision to reopen the garden.


We thank you for your understanding and patience in this process.  It is important to note that this matter was brought to the Administration and Governing Body's attention and required and received an immediate and expedited response by the Administration, one to protect the health and safety of the users of the organic garden. Often environmental testing takes weeks, let alone months, to complete and the Township Committee has expended the necessary funds and the Administration has compelled the attention of two environmental engineers, as well as the Township Attorney, to bring this matter to a conclusion to the satisfaction of the Township.

Finally, as a reminder, any food that is grown, whether organically or commercially farmed, our experts remind all users of the organic garden that they should wash and care for the products that it produces prior to ingesting.

The second round of soil sampling is attached for your review

Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated in this trying matter.  However, safety always comes first!

Thank you.

The Township of Montville 

NOTE: We are still waiting for Louis Berger’s formal conclusions and final report.  Upon receiving it, we will forward a copy to you.
