JACKSON-A plan to build 1,100 single and multi-family units was approved by the township planning board.  The board approved the project’s general development plan (GDP) and a hearing will commence on the northern portion of the Jackson Parke development located between Perrineville Road and West Veterans Highway.

The township board was divided on the proposal.

Five board members voted in favor of the plan.  Richard Egan, Jeffery Riker and Township Business Administrator Terrance Wall each voted no.

Twenty percent of the units, over 200 will be designated as affordable housing.  The single family homes will each have 2,400 to 3,200 square foot four to five-bedroom homes located on 9,000 square foot lots.

A three-story townhome complex will also be built on the site.  Each townhome will have three or four bedrooms.

Experts at the meeting suggested that if full approvals are given, the project would be ready for building in three to four years.
