Description

MILLINGTON QUARRY SUBDIVSION

The March 6th Board of Adjustment Meeting (BOA) on the quarry subdivision application was adjourned to May 16th at 7:30pm. This will allow the Township Committee (TC) attorney, John Belardo, to file his brief arguing that the TC has jurisdiction.


Millington Quarry Inc.'s attorney will then file their response. Once the briefs are available we will circulate to the group.

The May meeting will allow public comment on the jurisdictional issue, and the BOA will decide which body has jurisdiction to hear the application for subdividing the quarry property.

Public opinion matters and our strength is in our numbers.

Please save the date of May 16th at 7:30pm.
