WALL TOWNSHIP — Two applications, both for the same two adjoining properties, were carried Monday night after the planning board decided one jurisdictional issue needs to be resolved by the two parties outside of the planning board, and the other due to time.
The two applications, which are in opposition of each other, are from Wall Herald Corps, at 1717 Route 34 and ASP Wall LLC, at 5165 Belmar Boulevard.
Wall Herald Corps, represented by attorney Matt Dolan, seeks to renovate an existing runway on the property, as well as relocate a taxiway and private roadway. Wall ASP, represented by attorney Ron Gasiorowski, contended that the plans submitted to the board showed that a proposed dirt road would cross into his client’s property.
Dr. Dolan said that revisions have been made to the plans so that this was a “non-issue,” however the application was carried due to the submitted plan for June 28.
Meanwhile, Wall ASP is proposing to build seven warehouse facilities on its property on Belmar Boulevard and Birdsall Road, a GI-5 zone. Due to its proximity to the airport, all of the buildings’ heights had to be approved by the FAA, which they were at differing heights depending on location, but no more than 30 feet.
The applicant is also proposing a traffic change at the intersection of Birdsall Road and Belmar Boulevard. The applicant would change the intersection to a “T” shape whereas now it is curved. They are also proposing to widen Belmar Boulevard for left turns onto Birdsall Road.
Traffic engineer John Ray said he has been working with the county, since Belmar Boulevard is a county road, to approve those plans.
Opposition was not heard due to time constraints. The next hearing is scheduled for July 12.
The Wine Outlet, located at 1933 Route 35, had proposed a 136-square-foot sign be placed on the rear of its building facing the Aldi’s parking lot.
The planning board granted a sign less than 120 square feet be put up to which the applicant agreed.
