HOLMDEL, N.J. -  The Holmdel Township Committee issued a Press Release on the 130,000 Square Foot Shopping Plaza.

According to the Press Release:

The Mayor and Township Committee have no knowledge of this proposed development, and as such can certainly not endorse this project. Additionally, there are no applications pending on either the Planning or Zoning Boards, from Zenith Realty Advisors or the Goldberg Group, who are represented as the developers of this property. Mayor Greg Buontempo states,  “Myself and the Township Committee value the bucolic nature of our community. While we understand that development is inevitable, we will continue to strive to allow development that will be an appropriate fit and not affect the quality of life for our residents. We have no knowledge of this proposed project, and certainly do not support or endorse what has been described in the media. We look forward to meeting with the developer to discuss their concept.”

The project described by The Asbury Park Press, Patch and TAPinto Holmdel & Colts Neck http://facebook.com/tapintoholmdelandcoltsneck shows that major changes are underway by the Village Grande and Meadowood homes at the corner of Route 35 and Union Avenue. It has been a relatively quiet professional office area, coupled with adjoining farm stands, for decades.
