Hearing Tuesday on comp plan development area
The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Tuesday night on the proposed Gloucester Point/Hayes Area Development Plan, beginning at 8 p.m. in the colonial courthouse.
The Gloucester Planning Commission has recommended approval of the plan, which will be included in the county’s comprehensive plan, and will help guide decision-making for the future physical and economic growth of the area.
The plan will focus on the corridors of Greate Road, Hayes Road and Crewe Road. It includes background information, as well as goals and land use recommendations, according to a county notice. The plan also outlines the benefits of incorporating mixed uses and mixed densities into the outlined areas through the use of traditional neighborhood design principles.
Several town meetings have been held in the Gloucester Point area over the past year with county staff to explain the plan and as an opportunity for the public to have input into the document.
Another public hearing is also scheduled for Tuesday night on the issuance of revenue bonds associated with the Department of Environmental Quality consent order relating to the county’s utilities system.
The board will host a discussion of the needs of the housing advisory board and the need for housing funds during its regular meeting, scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.; discuss a request from the Fairfield Foundation to sponsor a transportation enhancement grant; hear a report on reassessment office procedures and discuss a grant opportunity to provide a generator for the emergency shelter at Peasley Middle School, according to assistant county administrator Georgette Hurley.
