Bellmawr Planning Board to Consider St. Joachim’s Application for Parking & Traffic Circulation Pattern Feb. 6

The Borough of  Bellmawr has published a Legal Notice today indicating that the Bellmawr Planning Board will be considering the application of St. Joachim’s Parish (applicant) for preliminary and final site plan with bulk variance relief.

Replacement Parking & New Internal Traffic Circulation

The application is seeking preliminary and final site plan with bulk variance relief for the replacement of parking and new internal traffic circulation. This will be necessary because of New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) temporary road on a portion of the property. Variance relief is also sought for certain pre-existing, non-conforming conditions on the lot, including parking, building height and signage.

The property involved is 601 W. Browning Road, which is designated as Block 50.04, Lots 1.01 and 1.02 on the Borough of Bellmawr Tax Map.

The Applicant will be requesting any and all other variances, waivers and/or ordinance interpretations that may be necessary. The case will be heard on Monday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the courtroom at the Borough Hall.

The Planning Board will also hear another case on February 6 regarding the subdivision of a property at 133 S. Cedar Avenue.

Applications on both cases are available to be viewed at the Bellmawr Borough Hall during regular business hours.
