The meeting is open to the public and begins at 6:30 p.m. A copy of its agenda is available at the township website as an Adobe Acrobat document; view it here.

The planning board is scheduled to review plans by Specht Investors LLC to construct a three-building office condominium development at 1800 E. High St., a four-acre property on the corner of East High and South Sunnybrook Road, where an existing office building already sits. The largest new building would consist of 19,846 square feet; a second, smaller building would contain 13,280 square feet.

Plans for the project were originally drawn up in November 2007. The buildings would be located in a Limited Commercial Office District, and within a floodplain.

A township Zoning Board hearing on the same project, originally scheduled to be held in mid-February but postponed by Specht because of site issues, has been re-scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17, 2009) at 6 p.m. in the municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd., a legal notice reported. The Planning Board is required to make a recommendation on the project to the Zoning Hearing Board.

Also scheduled for board consideration are:

  • Review of a zoning application for property at 1181 Mulberry St., owned by Brian R. Cogliano; and
  • A request for a permit for grading at the Occidental Petroleum property at 375 Armand Hammer Blvd.
