Memorandum-The Master Plan
Date: January 12, 2012
To: Planning board, Township of Neptune
Cc: Leanne hoffman, Pe, PP, CME
From: Jennifer Beahm, PP, AICP
RE: Summary of master Plan CORRECTIONS - Neptune Township
This memorandum seeks to summarize the non-substantive corrections that are proposed for the Draft Neptune Township Master Plan. The Neptune Township Master Plan Subcommittee convened on December 19th, 2011 with the purpose of evaluating and considering all public commentary that has been received and noted throughout the Master Planning process, as well as each individual written request for changes, alterations and additions to the Draft Master Plan. The Neptune Township Master Plan Subcommittee has evaluated all of the various requests that have been received throughout the planning process and has directed the following non-substantive corrections be made to the Draft Master Plan document as follows:
A. Township Goals & Objectives (page 3) Goal #14 was added as follows:
Pursue Certified Local Government designation for the Township to assist in the preservation of the Historic District and allow further ability to pursue grants and funding opportunities.
2) Land Use Element
A. Goals & Objectives #17 (page 13) existing goal amended as follows:
Review and evaluate the PUD Zoning District, which maintains frontage along Jumping Brook Road and Route 66 in the western portion of the Township, as well as the adjacent C-1 Zoning District to the west, for potential rezoning so as to permit more appropriate use(s), in consideration of the variety of existing land uses, which comprise these collective areas.
B. Goals & Objectives #23 added, LI District along Memorial Drive (Page 13), added the following goal:
Evaluate the Light Industrial Zoning District along Memorial Drive. This District contains a mix of industrial and single-family residential land uses, interspersed with commercial and vacant parcels. The parcels immediately adjacent to Atkins Avenue between 5thand 8th Avenue, which border the southwestern portion of the Zoning District, appear to be predominantly industrial in terms of existing land uses. The alignment of the overall District boundaries should be evaluated with particular emphasis placed on evaluating immediately adjacent industrial parcels along Atkins Avenue for inclusion in the District and potentially realigning other portions of the District boundary to omit incompatible land uses to the north.
C. Recommendation #1 (c) PUD/R-1 and adjacent C-1 District (Page 37) was replaced with the following:
It is recommended that the PUD/R-1 Zoning District in the northwestern portion of the Township, bounded by State Highway 66, Jumping Brook Road, Green Grove Road, and a portion of Bangs Avenue should be further evaluated along with the adjacent C-1 Zoning District that borders the PUD/R-1 Zone to the West. There is a wide range of existing land uses in this area, including single-family and multi-family residential, commercial, schools, vacant land and smaller portions of publically owned property. Overall, the PUD/R-1 zoning designation does not reflect the existing patterns of development. The overall area should be evaluated for consideration of more appropriate Zoning District(s), which reflect prevailing patterns of development and are sensitive to adjacent Zoning Districts, as well as important corridors, such as State Highway 66. Further, this evaluation should also consider more appropriate zoning in the C-1 District indicated above, with consideration given to existing residential development in the southern portion of this District. A transitional Zoning District, between existing residential development in the southern portion of this area and anticipated commercial Zoning along the State Highway 66 corridor to the north should be considered in any evaluation of these Zoning Districts.
D. Recommendation # 4(a) Historic District (Page 38), “Federally” designated was replaced with “Nationally” designated.
E. Recommendation #4(c) Historic District (Page 39), has been amended as follows:
Currently, the ordinance defines yard requirements as follows: “For lots in the HD-R-1 Zone District, the front building line shall have a minimum front yard setback of ten (10) feet back from the street line and the front porch line shall be set back at a minimum distance of four (4) feet from the street line.” East of Central Avenue, the ordinance continues as follows: “No building line or front porch line need be set back farther than the average alignment of those front building and front porch lines of existing buildings within 200 feet on each side of the lot and within the same block front and within the same Zone District. This provision does not permit the encroachment of buildings or porches into the flared open space area.” This definition has proven problematic, as architectural forms and styles are not uniform across Ocean Grove. It is recommended that a new definition be established to address this issue with the overall goal of maintaining the historic flare in Ocean Grove.
F. Recommendation #5 (Page 41), Creation of a Township Land Use Advisory Committee was removed.
G. Recommendations subsection (Page 44), the following recommendation regarding Special Area Standard from RSIS was added:
i) Special Area Standards
The rules concerning streets and parking, as promulgated in the Residential Site Improvement standards (RSIS) are not appropriate in furthering the on-going preservation and continued enhancement of the Historic portions of the Township. Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 5:21-3.5, Neptune Township should incorporate “special area standards” for Ocean Grove into the Township’s New Land Development Ordinance, to be submitted and approved by the New Jersey Site Improvement Advisory Board.
3) Historic Preservation Element
A. Goals and Objectives (Page 173), added the following Goal #10:
i) To encourage the maintenance and rehabilitation of historic structures and to promote high design standards for new structures and streetscape improvements, with special attention paid to critical vistas; including but not limited to existing historic street layout, flared avenues, and other significant community planning elements.
B. Page 175, Historic Neptune and Ocean Grove subsections were amended to incorporate changes to factual elements and add more history from the historic preservation community and local residents.
4) Parks Recreation & Open Space Element
A. Existing Park and Recreational Facilities (page 100) added the following items to the list of ROSI properties: Midtown Commons Park & Community Gardens.
B. Table 7.2 (Page 102), Founder’s Park updated to reflect a Passive Park and Memorial.
C. Evaluation of Recreational Facility Needs (Page 114) amended to add additional language for the northwest Midtown area as follows: “The northwestern Midtown Neighborhood area is in need of further recreational facilities. In particular, residents expressed a desire for outdoor basketball courts. The Midtown School is a feasible location for additional outdoor recreational facilities, in particular, basketball courts.”
A. Community Facilities Map: updated to reflect the following changes:
i) American Legion - 231 Fisher Avenue
ii) Elks 3409 West Bangs Avenue (Bl, 10,000 Lot 9)
iii) American Legion - 21 Gully Road
iv) American Legion - 240 Drummond Avenue (Bl. 217, Lot 459)
v) VFW - 1511 Corlies Avenue
