STOP HOVNANIAN FROM GETTING THE NEW JERSEY PULVERIZING SITE NEAR ROUTE 9 REZONED FOR 1,600 HOUSES.
URGE THE COUNCIL TO CONSERVE AND RESTORE THE ENTIRE SITE AS NATURAL OPEN SPACE.
COUNCIL PRESIDENT NATHAN ABBE
TOWNSHIP OF BERKELEY
BAYVILLE, NJ 08721
In response to an article by Save Barnegat Bay the Berkeley Township Council is now opposing any move to change the zoning of the New
Jersey Pulverizing site. That is good news.
But the battle is not over. Hovanian is still trying to push through the development. We need for citizens to write Berkeley Council President Nathan Abbe to:
(1) Thank the Council for voting not to grant K. Hovnanian a zoning change to build 1,600 houses along Route , and
(2) Urge that the Council purchase and restore the entire tract for conservation.
Hovnanian’s proposal would put 1,600 houses on 800 acres of land that is now forest and gravel pit. This 1,600 unit development would empty out onto Route 9 on
Gladney Avenue, which it would connect with Western Boulevard, which would forever change Pinewald.
