EDISON, NJ – The Edison Town Council approved the redevelopment plan for the Camp Kilmer property. The Sgt.

In April, The Edison Council passed the resolution authorizing the execution of a redevelopment agreement with Kilmer Homes I, LP and Kilmer Homes II, LP for the redevelopment of a portion of Camp Kilmer with new residential housing. Under the proposed plan, 120 units will be built as a part of an affordable housing project with a portion of the housing set aside for veterans.

As a part of the Camp Kilmer redevelopment project, he Edison chool district will receive additional space to ease overcrowding at other schools in the area. The Edison Township’s Department of Public Works will receive 3.6 acres of land for a new facility.
