Proposed Amendments to Schedule A (Land Development Regulations) and Schedule C- Parking Schedule
We are pleased to hear that the Mayor and Council are considering a proposal to strengthen and update the expansion of permitted business uses and parking regulations within our town.
The BID is asking for you to review the process for accepted uses in the business district. We recommend that if the use of a new business is permissible, the Building Department Director/Zoning Officer review the plans and decide if there is a need to go to the Planning Board for approval. This small change to the process would provide an opportunity for a site plan waiver granted to the applicant by the Building Department Officer/Zoning Officer. This is an accepted practice in many towns in New Jersey. Read more...
