Two pieces of property at the intersection of Route 34 and Broad Street were rezoned for mixed use development at the Matawan Borough Council meeting Tuesday night.
The council voted to approve the mixed use development ordinance, which amended the zoning of Lots 6 and 7 on Block 40 from highway improvement (HI) and industrial (IND) to mixed use development (MUD).
Lots 6 and 7 include the field behind the Walgreens on Route 34 and Broad Street and stretches to the Matawan Municipal Community Center.
The ordinance was reviewed and prepared over several months by the Unified Planning/Zoning Board before being passed to the council. The council held two public hearings on the ordinance during their meetings on Sept. 24 and on Oct. 2.
No one addressed the council during either public hearing.
The four page document is specific, governing every detail of a potential mixed use development, from permitted commercial uses to how a building constructed on the site should look.
