New Providence Zoning Board Reorganizes, Nadelberg Re-Elected President

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Robert Nadelberg was re-elected chairman of the borough’s board of adjustment Wednesday during the panel’s annual reorganization meeting.
Richard Van Shoick was re-elected to be vice-chairman of the board and Philip Morin III was reappointed as board attorney.
Michael Pennisi was reappointed to a four-year term, and William Hoefling was appointed by the mayor and council on Tuesday to a two-year term as second alternate.
The board reviewed several applications for additions to single family homes.

The first, which was approved, will allow Darius and Nergis Sabavala to construct a garage on their Primrose Drive property, even though the project required setback variances.
The other applications will be reviewed during public hearings at the board’s Jan. 18 meeting.
Raymond McCrann is seeking to construct an addition to his home on Lavina Court. He also wants to a construct a garage, which would bring the home into compliance with the zoning. Board member Jeff Grob said the site is a big lot “that once was a place to play.”
William and Nancy Ann Alagna are seeking to build an addition to their home on Passaic Street.
The project needs setback variances and a stream encroachment permit or waiver from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
Grob said the property has been certified as being above the 100-year flood line, but Nadelberg said that section has flooded two times in three years.
Ashok Kumar is applying to place a generator on his Hickson Drive property. Morin said that the board will need to consider the state’s noise limit standards  that have  been incorporated into the borough’s noise ordinance.
David and Christine Brigante have applied to build an addition to their home at Morehouse Place. Grob said that it appears that this is a large addition to the existing home.
