- The governing body of Wall Township
- United States of America
The governing body of Wall Township is considering a vote to change the existing HB-200 Zone (which allows retail uses) at the Peddlers Village property (Block 810, Lots 1,3 & 4) on Atlantic Avenue and the Route 35 Manasquan circle to a “Redevelopment Zone.”
The proposed rezoning is in direct opposition to the 1999 Wall Township Master Plan, which until this point determined the path the township would follow for continued, controlled growth and maintenance of the suburban features and population densities of our town. The Master Plan Reexamination Reports of 2005 and 2015 also recommended no changes to the Land Use Plan in this location due to the built nature of the district.
If the proposed rezoning is approved it will pave the way for the current owner of the site to attempt to build (as per plans) five 60 foot buildings that will house up to 350 apartments, a 150 room hotel, office space, garages and retail stores as part of a multiple mixed use application classified under an Urban Redevelopment Plan.
Rezoning to allow high density residential housing would impact our schools, traffic, emergency personnel, property values, and taxes. It would have immediate and long-lasting effects on the “QUALITY OF LIFE” for all residents and businesses of Wall Township and surrounding towns!
We, the undersigned, call on the governing body of Wall Township to vote NO on rezoning the Peddlers Village property (Block 810, Lots 1,3 & 4) on Atlantic Avenue and the Route 35 Manasquan circle.
