The monthly meeting of the Historic Preservation Commission wil be Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7pm in the upstairs conference room at Borough Hall. The New Milford Historic Preservation Commission is charged with preserving the integrity of the borough's historic heritage as the birthplace of Bergen County through preservation and archiving of buildings, land, and items of historic value; through research into the people, events, and locations that have formed that history, through public education programs for all ages, and through commendations for borough residents and organizations that have aided this mission.
The regular monthly meeting of the Zoning Board of Adjustment will be Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7pm in the Council Chambers of Borough Hall. The proposed development of the United Water Property will be on the agenda along with the Board's regularly scheduled items.
Last week Hekemian submitted substantial site plan revisions to the proposed development of the 13-acre United Water property. The revisions, which replace a considerable number of proposed housing units and the proposed restaurant with flood storage basins, appear to be designed to alleviate the public's concerns regarding increased flooding in that area should the development be approved.
The revised plans reflect 24 proposed housing units as opposed to the 221 unit multi-family housing complex that was proposed on the original plans.
The questions of whether or not these proposed 24 housing units will be set aside for affordable housing is expected to be answered by Hekemian's architect, Christian Lessard of Lessard Architectural Group, who is tentatively scheduled to appear.
