PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP ORDINANCES 12-2011 and 15-2017

Ordinance 12-2011 adopts a new redevelopment plan for the Browns Mills Town Center Redevelopment Area, superseding the plan previously enacted by the Township in 1995. The new plan, dated June 2011, constitutes a form-based code containing extensive design standards that will govern development in the Redevelopment Area. The 2011 redevelopment plan establishes six sub-districts within the Redevelopment Area, referred to as Town Village, Destination Retail, Noteboom Neighborhood, Neighborhood Transition, Mirror Lake and Open Space. Permitted building types (cottages, bungalows, colonial houses, attached/twin homes, townhomes, multiple residential dwellings, village commercial and corridor commercial) are then distributed among the sub-districts, with corresponding lot area and bulk requirements.

Ordinance 15-2017 amends the 2011 Browns Mills Town Center Redevelopment Plan by incorporating requirements for the use of Pinelands Development Credits in association with residential development or variances granted in various sub-districts within the Redevelopment Area.  Ordinance 15-2017 also adds single-family detached dwellings as a permitted use in the Open Space sub-district, in recognition of the fact that although much of the sub-district is comprised of publically-owned property, a number of privately-owned lots remain. Finally, Ordinance 15-2017 requires that all development within the Redevelopment Area comply with the minimum environmental standards of the CMP.

The Browns Mills Town Center Redevelopment Area is located in a Pinelands Regional Growth Area. As such, Ordinances 12-2011 and 15-2017 directly relate to CMP standards and must be formally reviewed and approved by the Pinelands Commission before they may take effect.

The hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Pinelands Commission Office, 15C Springfield Road, New Lisbon, NJ.  Written testimony may be submitted at the hearing or sent directly to the Pinelands Commission, 15C Springfield Rd, P.O. Box 359, New Lisbon, NJ 08064 or via facsimile at (609) 894-7330 or by email through the Commission’s web site at http://www.state.nj.us/pinelands/home/contact/public.shtml no later than August 9, 2017.  For further information, please call the Pinelands Commission at (609) 894-7300. 

 

SOUTH TOMS RIVER BOROUGH ORDINANCES 7-16 AND 8-17

Ordinance 7-16 adopts the Municipal Landfill Redevelopment Plan. This redevelopment plan establishes a redevelopment area consisting of five lots (Block 20, Lots 1.01-1.05) and approximately 49 acres. The affected lots contain the municipality’s former landfill, a recreation center and athletic fields and an existing public works facility.  The lots are currently located in the ML (Municipal Land) Zone, in recognition of their ownership by the Borough.  The new Municipal Landfill Redevelopment Area will serve as an overlay to the existing zoning such that all uses in the ML Zone will remain permitted.  Additional permitted uses in the Municipal Landfill Redevelopment Area include a maximum of 368 townhouses and multifamily residential units, with requirements for affordable housing set-asides and the redemption of Pinelands Development Credits.

Ordinance 8-17 adopts the Dover Road Redevelopment Plan.  This redevelopment plan establishes a redevelopment area consisting of two lots (Block 20, Lots 11.02 and 12) and approximately 21 acres.   The two lots are currently located in the Borough’s SED (Special Economic Development) Zone, where age-restricted residential development and a variety of nonresidential uses are permitted.  Ordinance 8-17 supersedes the SED zoning and establishes new standards for the area. In the new Dover Road Redevelopment Area, permitted uses will be limited to multi-family housing and townhouses at a maximum density of 17 units per acre, with requirements for affordable housing and the redemption of Pinelands Development Credits. 

The Municipal Landfill Redevelopment Area and the Dover Road Redevelopment Area are located in a Pinelands Regional Growth Area. As such, Ordinances 7-16 and 8-17 directly relate to CMP standards and must be formally reviewed and approved by the Pinelands Commission before they may take effec
