NUTLEY, NJ - The Township of Nutley Zoning Board of Adjustment is scheduled to review a code interpretation regarding the property at 275 Kingsland St. The property is being considered for a warehouse and truck terminal.
The item on the Township of Nutley Zoning Board of Adjustment agenda reads: "275 Kingsland Street – Code Interpretation of Proposed Use as Truck Terminal and/or in the Alternative for Use Variance for Approval/Proposed Warehouse/Truck Terminal."
Residents responded with a change.org petition titled "Stop Warehouse Construction from Destroying Nutley."
The online petition reads:
A mega-warehouse is proposed to be built in Nutley, NJ on Kingsland street. This property is surrounded by family houses. This land is currently part of a class-action lawsuit because of soil and water contamination. This proposed warehouse would be built to accommodate 40 eighteen-wheelers, which would be adding to the already clogged traffic on Nutley streets. This will turn Nutley from a family town into an industrial town. This will devastate property value for blocks around this site. This business will devastate what makes Nutley a good town to raise a family.
As of 4 p.m. Sun. April 18, 410 people have signed the petition.
The Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 19, 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the public can view and interact with the meeting via Zoom.
