Township Building Approved

Preliminary and final site plan approval for the construction of the Berkeley Heights Municipal Complex was granted by the Berkeley Heights Planning Board at a meeting on Wednesday evening.

Township Planner Mike Mistretta, Architect Anthony Iovino and Redevelopment Bond Counsel Matt Jessup presented the relevant documents including a recommendation that the proposed structure was substantially in accordance with the Township’s redevelopment plan.

A proposed modification seeks to take what was a four (4) phase development and cut it in half.  This will likely speed up the construction by as much as ninety (90) days and will result in some cost savings.  The construction will provide for thirty five (35) additional commuter parking spaces.

The original municipal complex was constructed in 1938 and three (3) decades of municipal officials have sought to address the need for a new structure.  All services including the Police Department, Library, Engineering and Administration together with Recreation and Senior facilities will be contained in the new campus.

It is hoped that a shovel will be in the ground sometime this summer at which time the municipal area will become a construction site while all of our employees continue to operate out of their respective current facilities.

I would ask all of our citizens to be patient during this process recognizing that we will shortly be celebrating a brand new facility which will take our Township into the next one hundred (100) years.
