On Monday at 7 pm there will be a hearing by a developer who wants variances for both height and ZERO setbacks!
Everyone who’s ever turned into Monmouth and route 88 / Main Street is aware of the dangerous level of the intersection.
This developer wants to build a 5 story 150 unit apartment building adding 200 plus cars to a crowded area. It is unconscionable to grant any variances. Attached is the notice that was sent to only some of the neighbors.
As a neighbor living in the immediate vicinity of this proposed monstrosity, I’m appalled by the disregard of safety and quality of life inherent in this proposal.
Both for all the people living here already and all the surrounding streets, all the people who utilize the streets in the area and the people who out of a necessity for housing will end up living there in a danger zone.
This project will be detrimental to the town long term with effects felt immediately.
The members of the zoning board will be directly responsible for the terrible repercussions approving this will bring.
