Bernards Zoning Board Grapples With Traffic Concerns Over Proposed Development

Overview: In a recent Bernards Zoning Board meeting, the predominant focus revolved around the traffic implications of a proposed development by Signature Acquisitions LLC on Allen Road. The board scrutinized the traffic impact study, particularly the projected increase in truck traffic and its subsequent effects on road safety, especially in proximity to residential areas and a large elementary school. Residents expressed concerns over truck traffic, diesel emissions, and the potential disruption to the community’s peace and safety. Discussions were further enriched with debates over the project’s alignment with the New Jersey State Planning Commission Office of Planning Advocacy’s guidelines, the definition of light manufacturing as per the township’s zoning code, and the adequacy of parking spaces for the proposed use.

Overview: The Bernards Zoning Board convened to address a series of variance requests from local property owners, resulting in the approval of several applications with conditions aimed at mitigating potential neighborhood impacts. Among the decisions were the approval of a small addition to a residence on South Maple Avenue, granting after-the-fact variances for lot coverage and a shed setback on an undersized property, and adjustments to a proposal for a new pool with a patio to ensure compliance with lot coverage limits and setback requirements.
