--Mayor

Mayor Panconi reported on February 22, 2006, he and Mr. Stout had an “informational” revaluation meeting in the Community Room of the School with Steve Benner, Tax Assessor and Appraisal Systems representative, Glen Sherman.  Mayor Panconi indicated there had been approximately 30 residents in attendance and felt the meeting went well.  However, Appraisal Systems had reported they would be starting the inspections on February 27, 2006 and Mr. Benner indicated to them there would have to be background checks first so the start date for the two inspectors will be delayed until the background checks were completed. Mayor Panconi also stated he had Mayor’s hours on Saturday, February 25, 2006 and had three residents show up—Mr. and Mrs. Kanawyer and Mr. Bill Bauder.  Mr. and Mrs. Kanawyer submitted budget questions, which will be brought forward at the Public Hearing on the Budget on March 13, 2006 and Mr. Bauder had some questions about the upcoming ConAgra meeting scheduled for March 1, 2006 at Town Hall.

Cranbury Township Ordinance # 01-06-02

 

A motion to enter an Ordinance entitled,” Cranbury Township Ordinance # 01-06-02, AN ORDINANCE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF CRANBURY REPLEAING IN ITS ENTIRETY CHAPTER 93 OF THE CODE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF CRANBURY AND REPLACING IT IN PART WITH NEW CHAPTER 21 IN PART I OF THE CODE, ENTITLED “HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION,” AND NEW CHAPTER 93 IN PART II OF THE CODE, ENTITLED “HISTORIC PRESERVATION’’, was presented for second reading and final adoption.  The Ordinance was published in the Cranbury Press, posted on the Township Bulletin Board and copies were available to the public.  The Mayor opened the public hearing on the Ordinance.  Mr. Stannard reported he had received an e-mail from Mr. John Ritter, Plainsboro Road, stating he was unable to make the meeting and wanted to convey his concerns about the Ordinance.  Mr. Stannard indicated Mr. Ritter raised his concerns that enforcement would lie with the new Commission and thus there would not be any appeal remedy for someone who would be told they had to do perform work on their home and that person not being able to afford to make the required changes.  Mr. Stannard indicated it was his understanding that H.P.C. wants to be able to work with individuals and thus be sensitive to the appeal process.  Mr. Stannard also stated he was in favor of the Ordinance, as he did not want to see the Township architecturally changed.  Mr. Wittman stated under the new Ordinance, the appeal process would go to the Zoning Board.  Mr. Moskowitz, Planning Consultant, stated the new Ordinance provides for an informational meeting right at the beginning of the application process, as well as allowing the Commission to work with an applicant who may have an undue hardship and allow the applicant to come up with an acceptable compromise before it would go to the Zoning Board.  Mr. Stout raised questions and discussed with the Township Attorney language issues within the Ordinance.  Mr. Stout also asked if the “Administrative Officer” and “Secretary” were one in the same person.  Ms. Waterbury, Township Attorney, responded they could be one in the same, however, in this case, were not.  Mr. Wittman asked should it be discovered once the Ordinance was in place, a gap or missing information, what the process would be to fix it.  Ms. Waterbury responded, should an

error be discovered, both she and the Planner would meet to review it and then make a recommendation to the Township Committee to amend the Ordinance.  No one else present wished to speak, so the hearing was declared closed.  On motion by Mr. Stannard, seconded by Ms. Stave, the Ordinance was adopted by a vote:

Reports from Township staff and professionals

     Mr. Witt, Township Administrator, reported on the numerous complaints from residents concerning street light outages.  Mr. Witt indicated, due to assistance from staff and elected officials, all of the lights have been fixed.  In addition, fixing the pole which is leaning at the corner of Old Cranbury Road and the KHov development would be addressed and a light had been installed at the corner of Old Cranbury and Old Trenton Road.  Mr. Witt also reported the lake was lower than the normal level.  This was due to construction going on with a retaining wall on Evans Drive and he had checked with the local farmers and they did not need any water.  Mr. Witt indicated the lake would be low until March 15th.  Mayor Panconi asked what the large amount of dirt was on the Sharbell (Updike) property, looking from Cranbury Neck Road.  Mr. Witt explained the large amount of dirt would be eventually graded, the area stabilized and dedicated to the Township by Sharbell for Open Space.

a.   Cranbury Housing Associates – COAH 3rd Round Affordable Housing development at   The Four Seasons at Cranbury site (cont’d).

permission for Cranbury Housing Associates to move forward with the construction project for the twenty units at The Four Seasons at Cranbury site.  Mr. Berkowsky reported he had met with residents on Old Cranbury Road and planned to meet with them again to get their input and concerns.  After that meeting, Cranbury Housing Associates would present the “concept plan” to the Planning Board, then have a formal presentation to the Planning Board and then come back to the Township Committee to talk about how much the project would cost.  Mr. Wittman added he and Mr. Berkowsky had met with the residents on Old Cranbury Road, as well as residents at The Four Seasons Development.  Mr. Wittman indicated a couple of concerns from the residents were regarding the site plan and parking issues along Old Cranbury Road, i.e. potential overnight parking on the road and added the residents were very appreciative for the meeting.  Mr. Wittman requested that he attend any future meetings Mr. Berkowsky should have with the residents.  Mr. Wittman also stated Mr. Witt had researched the Township’s Developer’s Agreement with KHov and the Agreement, which was from 1998, had clearly indicated twenty (20) units were to go on the site.  Mr. Stout requested that Mr. Berkowsky check with the Planning Board Secretary to get on its future Agenda, as the D.R.C. and Planning Board Agendas were filling up quickly.  The Township Committee unanimously gave its permission to Mr. Berkowsky to move forward with the project.

 

Public Comment

   The Mayor opened the meeting to public questions and comments on those items not on the agenda. There being no further comments, the Mayor closed the public part of the meeting.
