CLARK, NJ – L’Oreal has gained approval from the Clark Planning Board to build a Research and Development center in town. According to a release from Mayor Salvatore Bonaccorso, the building will be approximately 100K square feet and is designed to encase the current location closest to Central Avenue.
The mayor said the site plan includes a pond to recycle run-off storm water and a solar field over the parking lot as part of an “environmentally responsible” setting.
“We are happy to have L’Oréal continue to invest in their business and in this town,” said Bonaccorso. “This ensures Terminal Avenue remains an area of industry in town instead of becoming a place to develop more shopping centers and apartments. L’Oréal’s development brings jobs and people which is great as they spur the local economy.”
Bonaccorso sees the new facility as a win for the community. “The L’Oréal project is something all residents should be happy about because it helps the town continue to provide the same services to the public without additional cost to taxpayers. “
He continued, “Let’s face it, New Jersey isn’t built in a way that we can expect taxes to go down so having projects like this in town help to stabilize the tax bill for residents, which is what my administration strives to do,” said Bonaccorso.
