WALL TOWNSHIP — A lot on Lenape Trail was approved for subdivision by the township planning board at its Monday, Nov. 6 meeting. The application was for 1211 Lenape Trail to be split into two residential lots.
Not Your Average Joe, LLC., a home improvement services entity based in Belmar, filed its application in August for the purpose of buying Block 701, Lot 34 in Zone R10 — which was built in 1930 — and subdividing the property into two lots with more progressive architectural looks to them. The company’s owner, Jason Palmieri, was represented by attorney Mark Aiken and engineer Jason Fichter of Insite Engineering, LLC.
The property contains a single-family home, accompanied by a detached garage, pool, shed, driveway and patio. Its setback is only 15 feet from the street, half the required distance of 30 feet, according to Mr. Fichter. The engineer stressed that for now, the company is applying only for “subdivision, not construction.”
Residents, some of whom have been in the neighborhood for decades, like Glen Roberts of Crestview Road, were opposed to the application.
“My property is adjacent to this one … the houses’ concepts that they propose do not fit our neighborhood,” said Mr. Roberts. “We cannot have Bricktown mansions on our blocks.”
