BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Now that the approval has come through for a redevelopment of the Weyerhauser property in the Finderne section of Bridgewater, the township council unanimously approved the introduction of an ordinance and a resolution to vacate a section of Radel Avenue as part of the redevelopment.

The ordinance, and approved resolution, calls for the vacation of 2,289 feet of the road to accommodate the new development.

The ordinance had originally come before the council before the application for the redevelopment plan was heard by the planning board, but council members opted, at the behest of residents, to table it until the application itself was heard. Residents said it was too early to approve the vacation of a road when the piece of land would only be needed if the application was approved.

The public hearing for the ordinance will be held Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the municipal building.

The redevelopment plan, which was approved by the planning board in September, calls for a 220-unit complex with 44 affordable units and 176 market units. A minimum of 88 of those market units will have one bedroom, and the remaining will have no more than two bedrooms.
