Aberdeen to Present Updated Investigation of Land for Proposed Transit Village
The investigation is an update to the original one conducted in 1999
The Aberdeen Township Planning Board will hold a public hearing about the supplemental and updated preliminary investigation report designating the land surrounding the train station as an area in need of redevelopment.
According to Planning Board Secretary Maxine Rescorl, not much has changed in this report. The original investigation was done in 1999, and the township council and the planning board felt it was important to update the survey before moving forward.
The purpose of the public hearing is to hear comments from all interested parties regarding the supplemental and updated report, and the Planning Board may take action to adopt the report.
The hearing will take place on Wednesday, Feb 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Aberdeen Township Municipal Building.
The redevelopment land encompasses about 62.81 acres of land surrounding the Aberdeen Matawan Train Station:
