WALL TOWNSHIP — An application to build 10 warehouses at 1875 Route 34 near the Monmouth Jet Center and Wall Speedway has been cleared by the Wall Township Planning Board to move on to final site plan review on May 1.
The Monday night hearing was the fourth held on the application by Wall Owner LLC and followed a Dec. 5 session at which the planning board had questioned its compliance with the conditional standards outlined in Ordinance 140-142, subsection B, which states:
“The loading and delivery area shall be located at the rear of the structure and shall be screened primarily with evergreen trees so as to provide visible obstruction as to neighboring properties. In the event any of the aforesaid trees do not live, they shall be replaced so as to maintain the adequate screening.”
The roughly 295-acre parcel in question is the former McDowell Mining Property and is split into two zones; 202 acres in the GI zone to the west and 93 acres in the OR-10 zone to the east.
The property is bordered to the north by the Monmouth Jet Center airport with West Hurley Pond Road in between them, east by Wall Speedway and Route 34, to the south by Interstate 195 and the west by Carmerville residential development.
