After hearing from three presenters and about 30 people from the public, the last Parsippany council meeting delayed the vote and the rest of the public hearing on the controversial Waterview Development rezoning for Oct. 1.
Tuesday’s meeting will be at Parsippany Hills High School at 7 p.m. The three presenters from the last council meeting are:
- Ed Snieckus, of Burgis Associates, Inc., on the inconsistencies/consistencies of the proposal with the township's master plan. In summary, he said that the proposed overlay can be found to effectuate several objectives of the Master Plan.
- Gordon Meth, director of traffic engineering with the RBA Group, Inc., on the traffic impacts. Ultimately, he said that “Overall the traffic impacts are wide-ranged, large scale, really non-existent."
- Joseph Burgis, Principal of Burgis Associates, on the fiscal impacts. He said that the estimated annual tax revenues would total $1,137,259, the total per capita retail trade expenditure would be $1.47 million and total site development fees would be $1.4 million.
