Keyport Planning Board Meeting tonight

The borough of Keyport is having a planning board meeting to discuss the Hudson Pointe Project tonight at 7 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 70 West Front St.

75 Manchester, LLC will make a presentation to the Keyport Unified Planning Board (KUPB). Wayne J. Peck, Esq. represents the applicant.

The conceptual proposal includes: 15 townhouses, 8 one-bedroom flat units, 12 two-bedroom flat units, 12 duplex units in 6 buildings and 1 single-family house.

While the applicant recognizes this high-density situation, he said it was in order to make a profit.

The 48 units are proposed for 12 3-story buildings with off-street parking.

The project also calls for the construction of a driveway 120 inches over the “green buffer” on the south side of Henry Hudson Trail, which will require permits from the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

Residents’ concerns thus far deal with quality of life issues such as traffic, parking, trash, snow removal and recreation space.

The public will be allowed to voice concerns or comments at the meeting tonight.

Notice of this meeting is posted online at Keyport’s Web site.
