Application for United Water Company Property Denied
Application requesting change in zoning from Residential A to mixed used denied
New Milford's Bureau of Code Enforcement Planning and Zoning has formally denied an application filed by New Milford Redevelopment Associates LLC asking for preliminary and final site plan approval for the 13-acre United Water property.
The application sought approval for the construction of a supermarket, bank and a 221 unit residential housing complex that included a multi-level parking garage with 428 spaces and a pool.
The application was denied citing violations to New Milford's zoning codes. The height of the residential housing unit is a proposed four-story complex. The current zoning code for that property permits a maximum of two and one-half stories.
Also, New Milford's parking codes require one parking space for every 150 square-feet, which would be 925 spaces for this development. The proposed parking contains only 826 spaces.
Peter Hekemian, managing director of the New Milford Development Associates, LLC, is also the Principal and V.P. of Development for the S. Hekemian Group.
As a result of the denial, New Milford Redevelopment Associates LLC is scheduled to appear before the Board of Adjustment on Tuesday, February 14th.
Editor's note: The Board of Adjustment meeting that is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 14th will be at 7:30 p.m. in the council chambers of Borough Hall.
