The Matawan Borough Unified Planning/Zoning Board will hold a public hearing on a possible mixed use development near the Walgreens at the intersection of Route 34 and Broad Street, according to a public notice.
The application seeks approval from the board to retain the Walgreens building and modify the existing two story building into a fitness center. The applicant also seeks approval to build a new mixed use building consisting of retail space on the first floor with four residential stories above it.
Variances were previously approved for front yard setback, side yard setback, and signage on the Walgreens property. New variances will be requested for 371 parking stalls where 580 are required and for relief from the requirement of a loading space for the fitness center.
The public notice states that the applicant intends to request at the hearing bulk variances and waivers of design standards or submission requirements.
The Planning/Zoning Board approved an ordinance that re-zoned the property in questions as a mixed use development in October 2012.
The April 1 hearing will begin at 7 p.m. at the Matawan Municipal Community Center. There will be time for public comment and questions.
