reviewed the corridor studies reviewed to date noting Changebridge was
discussed as well as Rt. 46. We need to
finalize the remainder of Rt. 202.
The area along
Rt. 202 (Whitehall Road
up to Lincoln Park
border) reviewed. After a lengthy
discussion, members felt that this area should stay residential since although
there are some existing non conforming businesses along this area, the general
use is that of single family residential.
did ask that the master plan should have verbiage in the findings clearly
indicated that should these non-conforming uses ever decide to change uses,
that the master plan reinforce that we want to carry the theme of residential
use along the entire length of this corridor.
section of Rt. 202 up to border of Pequannock was also discussed, and since
this is also heavily residential, existing zoning should remain as is.
The entire Rt.
202 corridor has been studied.
areas of study for next subcommittee meeting was set for August 11, 2010 @
8:30AM and the following areas remain to be studied:
Stiles, Old Bloomfield, River Road, Rt.
202 sites (V&L & Pennick
properties), as well as several other areas that will be visited (Wheeler
property, Croatian Park).
indicated that at this time he thinks we are near completion in getting the
entire master plan put into a document, which he thinks will be over 100 pages
or more. As to funds allocated for this
study, we are still within budget.
Future work will involve the ordinances, which also has monies allocated
under our budget for this work which will start immediately after completion of
