Planning Board Approves Child Care Center; Prepares Denial for Starbucks Drive-Through

The Planning Board split approval on an application for minor subdivision and preliminary and final site plan with variances for CP Management Group II LLC. The property in question, located at 92 South Livingston Avenue, was previously home to Bank ofAmerica. The applicant proposes to subdivide existing Lot 3 to create two new lots. The existing, now-vacant building would be expanded on one of the new lots to house a child care center, Lightbridge Academy. A Starbucks with a drive-through is proposed to be constructed on the second lot.

The Board closed its evidential hearing on April 11, including public comment, but decided to meet on the application one last time for deliberations among the members before voting on the matter.

Town Council Passes Assisted Living Ordinance; Hearing Had Been Open for Five Meetings

At the Monday, May 6, Township Council regular meeting, after hearing more testimony from residents and developers, the Council closed a hearing that had been open for five meetings. The hearing was for an ordinance that proposed conditional use of block 6300 in the Coventry section of town, which would allow an assisted living facility to be built on the property.

Over multiple meetings, residents had previously expressed their concerns about the development, and subsequent traffic and safety problems it may cause. Their testimony prompted the Council to leave the hearing open as they awaited more information and input from the county and the developer.

Support the Parade

Somehow, it’s already May, and the Memorial Day Parade is right around the corner on Monday, May 27. Over the next few weeks the township will be collecting money to fund the upcoming parade, and we encourage our residents to offer their support.

Memorial Day, first known as Decoration Day, originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in that conflict. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all of our nation’s wars. Volunteers would place American flags on the graves of veterans, hence the name Decoration Day.

Out on the River

This past Monday, a member of the Tribune staff joined Richard Cornell, chairman of Livingston’s Trails and Greenways committee, on a two-hour canoe ride up and down the township’s section of the Passaic River. It was a crisp, sunshiny morning and the leisurely paddle offered a unique snapshot of town.

We passed under the Route 10 and Mt. Pleasant Avenue bridges, past rows of houses and offices, and even glided right by the Cedar Hill Country Club golf course during the annual PBA golf outing. We started our journey behind the Brandon Tevlin Fields off Okner Parkway, made our way to the canoe launch a few miles down the river on South Orange Avenue, and paddled our way back. We saw trees in bloom, deer at play, and heard plenty of birds chirping.
