BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Bridgewater Township Council approved an ordinance for the purchase of 1.2 acres of land on Route 202/206 from the affordable housing trust fund.

This ends a settlement with Woodmont Properties concerning the acquisition of a parcel of land adjacent to the planned site of the Al Falah mosque.

In December 2015, the township approved a settlement with the Al Falah Center in regard to litigation concerning a proposed mosque on the former Redwood Inn site on Mountain Top Road. The settlement allows Al Falah to build a mosque on a site on Route 202/206, rather than the former Redwood Inn property on Mountain Top Road.

Woodmont, which has luxury apartments on Route 202/206, had owned a parcel of land adjacent to the approved mosque site. The township has agreed to purchase the property for $525,000 out of the affordable housing trust fund.

The 1.2-acre parcel is planned to be used for a one-story group home with no more than six bedrooms.

Originally, the settlement proposed was that the home could not be constructed within 10 years of the purchase, but a change in the ordinance lowered that to four years.
