[POLL] What Do You Think About the Mixed Use Building Approved to Replace C-Town?

Planning Board approves mixed use property plans at 126 Main Street

The Matawan Borough Planning Board approved the latest plans for the long vacant C-Town property on Main Street at their Jan. 4 meeting, according to an article in the Independent. They voted 4-2 to approve the mixed use property.

, as reported in Patch in December, include a 4450 square foot retail area and 39 residential units in a four story building where C-Town now stands. The building will consume the parking lot along Little Street, however there will be parking available to shoppers. Parking is currently prohibited on Little Street, Jackson Street and Maiden Lane.

This is the third proposed version of the mixed use property presented to the board, with variations in building height, the size of residential space versus retail space and the number of residential units.

Nick J: Go down Main Street in the morning and look at the Number of Immigrant children waiting for the bus near 90 Main Street apartments.WHY aren't you aware of this. So the apartment complex at the old C -Town will not be this kind of renters. Wake up.

Main street should be the urban core of a greater Matawan Township. Aberdeen has no identity and no city center to have a parade. If we had a referendum to merge the two municipalities, we could get rid of half the idiot politicians in one fell swoop. Matawan has name recognition but poor management. The state would gladly support the merger. A larger community could give us a greater pool of leaders to choose from, even two party boards.

That's a suggestion worth considering Barzillai. I feel that the two towns are As ONE anyway. Maybe if we shared more facilities and services our spending (and taxes) could go down as well. Besides, it still wouldn't be that large of a town (size and population wise).

About the renters.... I agree that the taxes that the rental property owner pays will probably not cover the cost of the extra kids attending the schools. But the developer hired a VERY high end architect (Dean Marchetto from Hoboken) to prepare the design. I really doubt that the people that you are referring to are going to be able to afford to live in this complex.... IF it ever gets built that is.
