Reports from Township staff and professionals

Ms. Marcelli reported last Wednesday, October 19, 2005, she, Mr. Witt, Ms. Joan Weidner and members of the subcommittee for the Wright South remediation project held a pre-construction meeting with the contractor, EnviroCraft.  Ms. Marcelli and the subcommittee discussed and reviewed with the contractor, the general practices he will be employing on the site to remediate the soil.  It is anticipated the contractor will not be mobilizing on the site until October 31st for mobilization to re-establish soil erosion measures.  The actual soil remediation process would not begin until some time after November 1st.  The Township had not executed the contract yet as there was some language changes needed to be made and the contractor needed to provide his insurance Certificate and Performance Bond to the Township.  Ms. Marcelli reported complete minutes of the meeting would be distributed to the Township Committee as soon as the subcommittee approves them.  Ms. Marcelli indicated she had left a brochure from EviroCraft with the Clerk for the public’s use. 

 

 

Reports from Township staff and professionals(Continued)

 

Mr. Witt reported the Township would be receiving, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 at 10:00 a.m. at Town Hall, the re-valuation “R.F.Ps” (Request for Proposal) for the upcoming re-valuation.  Mr. Witt indicated the Clerk, Tax Assessor and he would be receiving and reviewing the R.F.P.s and then they would be forwarded to the Township Attorney for review.  Mr. Witt added a recommendation to award would be made to the Township Committee at the November 28, 2005 meeting.

                 

Reports from Township Boards and Commissions

There were no reports.

 

Work Session

      a.   Police Station Update (Mark Berkowsky)

Mark Berkowsky discussed with and updated the Township Committee on the new Police Station, indicating there were a few “punch list” items to be taken care of.   A Certificate

of Occupancy had been issued by the Construction Official last Friday and Mr. Berkowsky indicated Chief Hansen had moved into the new police building and had been sitting at his desk earlier that day!  Mr. Berkowsky reported the ribbon cutting would be Friday, October 28, 2005 at 9:00 a.m. with an Open House to be held sometime in the Spring of 2006. 

 

b.   Discussion of the Township’s COAH 3rd Round Affordable Housing

             Plan.

The Township Committee discussed the Township’s COAH 3rd Round Affordable Housing Plan for presentation to the Planning Board on November 3, 2005.  Mayor Beauregard gave a brief history of COAH and reported the Planning Board had requested the Township Committee discuss the K. Hovnanian site designation as family units vs. having the designation with more flexibility, i.e. senior housing.  Mr. Mark Berkowsky, Cranbury Housing Associates, gave a presentation concerning the issue of family units vs. senior housing and reported the design for family units had been based on community needs.  Mr. Berkowsky reported C.H.A. had performed a preliminary design of the site nearly three years ago after K. Hovnanian had donated the property to the Township. Mr. Berkowsky added C.H.A. had urged the Township Committee to move forward with the design of the site based upon community needs and added the design work had been paid for with the County Community Block Grant monies.  Mr. Berkowsky indicated the project was halted approximately a year and a half ago awaiting further direction from the Township Committee.  Mr. Berkowsky stated there would be 30 family units on the Four Seasons K-Hov site, giving the Township bonus points from COAH for building family units.  Mr. Berkowsky indicated under The Federal Fair Housing Act, for senior age-restricted housing over the age of 50, one must provide not only housing but a common building as well as program services and forty to fifty senior units would have to be built in order to justify the extra costs of providing the program services.  Mr. Berkowsky indicated C.H.A. had determined there existed competition for senior age-restricted affordable housing.  Mr. Berkowsky also indicated if the senior units were built, the overall extra expense to the Township would be about $800,000 and again stressed the Township would not receive from COAH the number of bonus points as it would for the family units. Mr. Berkowsky ended by urging the Township Committee to move forward to develop the site.  A gentleman from Ryan Road spoke concerning the impact the family rental units would have on the school system.  Mr. Berkowsky responded an analysis had shown the C.H.A. housing had yielded 2/4 of a school child from their affordable housing units, or out of 26 units, 10 school children.  Mayor Beauregard reported the larger home developments in Cranbury are bringing more school children to the Cranbury School than anyone had imagined, using as an example, a need for one bus alone just to transport the children from the Shady Brook development.  Mr. Panconi indicated he believed the biggest issue for the School Board is the “unknown”, explaining

Work Session (Continued)

b.   Discussion of the Township’s COAH 3rd Round Affordable Housing Plan (cont’d)

the School Board is aware of the numbers the affordable units are going to generate and one of the biggest issues for them is the individuals coming in with school-age children who are purchasing the empty-nester homes, not the affordable housing units.  Mr. Panconi reported the decision made in reference to how many and the location of the affordable units, at the last Township Committee meeting, with which he was comfortable, was not arrived at without due-diligence and without very careful thought.  Mr. Panconi also indicated the K-Hov site had been an overall decision for the K-Hov site having family units, the Route 130D site having family units and the Maplewood Avenue site having family units.  Mr. Stannard stated the proposed number of school children to be generated by the affordable rental units would be spread out until the year 2014.  Mr. Stannard indicated he was in favor of the family rental units for the K-Hov site as it allows the Township to take advantage of the credits from COAH.  Mr. Stout indicated he did not believe any decision was being made in haste and stated it had been a very deliberative

process with a lot of input and the Township should just “stay the course”.  Mayor Beauregard asked the next step in the process. Ms. Waterbury, Township Attorney,

explained the two members of the Township who are on the Planning Board, Messrs. Stannard and Stout, would need to go back to the Planning Board meeting on November 3rd and report the Township Committee’s decision.  Mr. Stout requested the Board of Education attend the Planning Board meeting.    

 

 c.  Discussion of Unexcel Property

Mr. Panconi reported the subcommittee had a meeting last week with the owners of the Unexcel property who are proposing developing the property and are presently in the process of cleaning up the site.  Mr. Panconi indicated the property is not part of the sewer Master Plan as a result are requesting to obtain a 208 amendment which would allow them to hook up to the sewer system.  They have requested, at their expense, to have the Township Engineer, Ms. Marcelli, perform a study on the Township’s sewer capacity.  Ms. Marcelli requested direction from the Township Committee, before she “wastes their time and hers if there is a problem with the owners being able to get a 208 amendment”.  Ms. Marcelli indicated they plan to have a 3-million square foot area of building space and have performed some preliminary investigation on having an on-site treatment facility, which would not affect their building area.  The on-site treatment facility would most likely use between two to three acres of their land and Ms. Marcelli indicated they do have adequate upland and the expected discharge would be between 25,000 – 30,000 gallons per day.  Ms. Marcelli asked in the effort of being fair, if the Township did not plan to endorse the requested 208 amendment, to inform the developer now, rather then spend Ms. Marcelli’s time and their money.  Mr. Stout indicated he did not feel it appropriate to discuss this issue without the full Township Committee being present.  Mr. Stannard asked what the downside would be to allow them to obtain the 208 amendment.  Ms. Marcelli responded she did not believe there would be a downside or any risks to the Township, providing the sewer system has the capacity and added it should be noted the developer was not asking for any change in their zoning.  Mr. Stannard also concurred with Mr. Stout to wait until the full Committee was present.  Mr. John Ritter, Plainsboro Road, asked if the 208 amendment were to be approved by the Township, what COAH requirements would it generate and was this site already figured into the COAH figures for the 3rd Round.  Ms. Marcelli responded it had been anticipated and was included in the COAH projected development figures.  Mr. Wayne Wittman, South Main Street, mentioned he had understood the County was going to purchase the property and asked if there was still an interest.  Mayor Beauregard indicated she was not aware of this.  Ms. Marcelli indicated once the County had found out an expensive cleanup of the site was involved, they had withdrew their interest in purchasing the site and also mentioned as part of the developer’s remediation plan with the State, there had been a restriction placed on the site for residential use or housing.  Ms. Angie Cook, North Main Street, asked the necessity of hiring Ms. Marcelli to perform a study first before applying for the

Work Session (Continued)

c.   Discussion of Unexcel Property(cont’d)

208 amendment.  Mr. Panconi responded there was a fixed number of the amount the Township could send to South Brunswick Township’s Sewer and the study would be done to determine the balance the Township would be able to send to the South Brunswick Sewer System.  Mayor Beauregard raised her concern with the cleanup of the site and requested this issue be discussed when all members of the Township Committee were present.  Ms. Marcelli indicated a meeting was scheduled with an inner-agency group concerning this clean up and she and a member of her staff planned to attend. Ms. Marcelli will e-mail to everyone the particulars (the place, date and time) of the meeting.     

 

Public Comment

    The Mayor opened the meeting to public questions and comments on those items not on the agenda. Mr. Bob Virgadamo, Holmes Road, spoke concerning Ryan Road and asked that the original decision not to open up the road to vehicular traffic once the affordable rental units were built remain.    Ms. Waterbury, Township Attorney, read from the report filed with the Township and County Planning Boards concerning access to Ryan Road, indicating only pedestrian access from the Route 130D site would be allowed with the exception of emergency vehicles.  Ms. Marcelli, Township Engineer, urged the residents of Ryan Road, Silvers Lane and Griggs Road to attend the Planning Board meeting to voice their concerns regarding the access issues.  Mayor Beauregard noted the project was five to seven years away.  Mr. Panconi added the site plan approval was not scheduled until September 2007 with occupancy not until September 2010, according to the draft plan.  Mr. Mark Berkowsky, C.H.A., indicated C.H.A. would welcome community involvement and interaction during the planning process of the project and urged residents to come out to the meetings. There being no further comments, the Mayor closed the public part of the meeting.
