We the undersigned are adult legal residents of the Borough of Leonia, New Jersey. We are opposed to the application proposed by 313 Woodland Place LLC for the construction of a 37-unit, four story apartment building on the property known as 313 Woodland Place, Leonia NJ 07605 (Block 901, Lot 6).
We believe that the granting of eight variances for a single lot constitutes "spot zoning," and as the applicant has testified that they will not be constructing a building that will serve any purpose qualifying as "inherently beneficial," approving such an application is illegal.
We further believe that the granting of this application is contrary to the zoning that defines the Borough of Leonia's residential character, and sets a precedent that will ultimately result in the loss of that character.
We urge the members of the Leonia Planning Board to vote against the memorializing resolution for this application when it is presented to the Board. If the Planning Board does approve the application, we urge the Leonia Mayor and Council to reverse the decision and reject the application when the matter is appealed to the Leonia Mayor and Council.
