SEA BRIGHT:A developer is planning to build a large housing project along the borough's riverfront.
Jesse A Howland & Sons, Inc./CJM Associates of Sea Bright, LLC have submitted a request to New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Land Use Regulation Program for a waiver from the filled water's edge rule.
The applicant is looking to build 147 units of multifamily housing from River Street to Surf Street on river side of the borough. The housing would contain a mixture of 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units located in three buildings. The plan also calls for 212 parking spaces.
According to a public notice, a 30 day public comment period or a fact-finding public hearing could be held on this application in the future.
"A public hearing will be held only if the Department determines that, based on public comment or a review of the project, its scope and environmental impact, additional information is necessary to assist in its review or evaluate potential impacts and that this information can only be obtained by providing an opportunity for a public hearing on this application," the notice states.
The project has not yet come before a the borough's planning or zoning board, so its unclear if any variances are needed in addition to the waiver from the DEP.
