The Middletown Township Planning Board heard more testimony from the developer who is eyeing the wooded Taylor Lane tract in Middletown, but took no action on the application at its meeting Wednesday. Testimony will continue at the Feb. meeting.
American Properties at Middletown, LLC is seeking preliminary and final site major subdivision, and preliminary & final major site plan approval to construct 196 townhomes and 49 affordable units, along with a 3,600 foot clubhouse and a pool in the area across from Target on Route 35.
The board allowed time for a few citizens, of the dozens present, to ask questions about the plans for Heritage at Middletown.
At the meeting, the board approved an application from Memorial Sloan Kettering for preliminary and final major site plan to contruct a a nearly 20,000 square-foot addition to the vacant Lucent building, located on Red Hill Road.
The building, which would generate taxable revenue for the township, would house a data center and employ workers.
Memorial Sloan Kettering has indicated it plans to open in 2016, said Planning Board Attorney James Gorman.
