WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19th
BARNEGAT TOWNSHIP ORDINANCE 2014-23 - Ordinance 2014-23 amends Chapter 55 (Land Use) of the Code of Barnegat Township by adding mixed use development as a conditional use in the C-N (Neighborhood Commercial) Zone. According to the standards adopted by Ordinance 2014-23, mixed use development must include retail/commercial space on the first floor and age-restricted multi-family apartments on the second and third floors. The residential component of a mixed use development must be in conjunction with at least 90,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. Maximum residential density is 11 units per acre, and Pinelands Development Credits must be purchased and redeemed for 25% of all residential units in a mixed use development. Finally, Ordinance 2014-23 makes clear that mixed use development is permitted only on properties in the C-N Zone that are located within a Pinelands Regional Growth Area. As such, Ordinance 2014-23 directly relates to CMP standards and must be formally reviewed and approved by the Pinelands Commission before it may take effect.
