Montclair Planning Board Appoints New Members, Discusses Engineering Contract

At the recent Montclair Planning Board meeting, the most developments included the appointment of new members, the withdrawal of an application for John’s Automotive, and a shift in engineering contracts to Neglia Engineering. The meeting addressed various procedural matters, including approving minutes, resolutions, and committee assignments, but the standout topics were the welcoming of new members to the board, a crucial change in the board’s engineering support, and the withdrawal of an application that was previously under consideration.

The board officially welcomed new members Jeffrey Borof and Tamar Campbell, acknowledging their future contributions and thanking outgoing members for their service. A resolution to retain Neglia Engineering as the board engineer was discussed after Boswell Engineering informed the board they could no longer serve due to staffing changes. Neglia Engineering was chosen based on their proposal quality and potential efficiencies given their familiarity with Montclair, as they already work with the township.

Another point was the withdrawal of an application by John’s Automotive. Their attorney informed the board that they would not proceed with their application, offering no further explanation. This withdrawal removes a potentially contentious development project from the board’s agenda.

Furthermore, the board addressed a request for a one-year extension on an approval for a project on Glen Avenue, which was granted. The protection from zoning changes was deemed unlikely to be impacted by any recent zoning considerations.


Lastly, committee assignments were updated, including the appointment of Jacob Nieman to the Development Review Committee, which addresses technical issues and provides advice to applicants on minor applications.
