Petition to Stop the Re-Zoning of the Y Block 1 , Lot 1.01 owned by the YM-YWHA of Raritan Valley.
We,the undersigned, oppose the re-zoning of the Y, in accordance with the position of Highland Park Citizens for Responsible Riverfront Development which is stated below: Highland Park Citizens for Responsible Riverfront Development supports retaining the current zoning only, in light of the issues that we have been speaking of, including traffic issues, safety issues, density, loss of open space, etc. Highland Park Citizens for Responsible Riverfront Development opposes any re-zoning in accordance with the provisions for that lot that are in the current master plan, which would also be unacceptably dense residential construction for the area. Should a compromise be put on the table, HPCRRD will consider such a proposal at that time. Highland Park Citizens for Responsible Riverfront Development vigorously opposes the plan recommended by the Borough hired professionals, presented on December 21, 2006, which, in tier three zoning, allows density at approximately 15% in excess of the master plan, which is already too dense. Our opposition is in recognition of the likelihood that developers will utilize the highest tier to obtain maximum profit, especially in light of the original proposal by the YM-YWCA, which was far in excess of tier three.
