HAMILTON, NJ -- A well-known Hamilton Township property that has fallen into disrepair and delinquency could get a new use thanks to action by the Hamilton Township Council. At a recent meeting, the legislaitve body unanimously passed a resolution deeming the land that was the Patterson Avenue Landfill as an "area in need of redevelopment." 

The resolution noted that the property owner is delinquent in taxes and fees.  

In May, the Council had authorized the Hamilton Township Planning Board to do a preliminary investigation in order to determine if the property qualified as a non-condemnation area in need of redevelopment under the state's Local Redevelopment and Housing Law. After an investigation and public hearing held in July, the Planning Board recommended that the former landfill property be designated as a non-condemnation redevelopment area.
