To the Editor:
I am writing on behalf of the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce to express our gratitude and congratulations to the developer, the mayor and Borough Council of Flemington and the interested citizens of our county seat who are working diligently to make the Courthouse Square project a reality.
The alternative plan recently proposed by Jack Cust and his team appropriately addressed issues raised by some concerned citizens, which included reduced density, building heights and required parking. The revised plan also manages to save some buildings from being replaced. The mayor and borough council actively solicited opinions and input from residents, interested businesses, and non-profit groups in order to make the project the best it can be for Flemington.
We are confident that the proposed revisions will make the project come to fruition and improve the vitality, commerce and quality of life for the borough, its citizens and the entire county. Be confident that you can count on our ongoing support for this project from the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce, interested parties and the business community sharing in this noteworthy effort.
