So if you happen to be perusing through the Highlandsnj.com web site and look at the Agenda for tonights meeting at the Highlands Elementary School at 7:30 (just posted today).
You’ll notice a couple of things:
Action & Approval for PB 2013-2 which pertains to a personal property(s) on Shrewsbury that were affected by Sandy.
Then innocently down the list they mention Reviewing O-13-16. Don’t know what O-13-16 is? That is the ordinance introduce by the Council in last Wed (July 3) emergency meeting. It is proposed to change the Mobile Home Residence District (which currently allows for Highrise multi-family for up to 6 floors I believe to Highrise multi-family with no MH usage.
Why is this important? It opens the door for development of another East Point on the Hill.
There will be 3 main opposing arguments here:
1) You shouldn’t displace the mobile home residents – vote no
2) We need the rateables, so let the developer do whatever he wants, its his land – vote yes
3) Development of the land is necessary for rateables however, I don’t want another East Point up there – vote no OR yes with stringent stipulations.
As always there will be streaming of this meeting if you can’t come in person.
