Stop Proposed Housing Development on New Road

This petition had 1,391 supporters

We, the undersigned residents of South Brunswick, oppose the building of a 3-story housing complex with 200 rental units by Stanton Girard, LLC on 12 acres located at 127-129 New Road, adjacent to the firehouse and across from Woodland Park.  

This property has provided a buffer for Kendall Park from a Superfund landfill. There is the risk of the unknown in disturbing the land so close to the Superfund site, which is capped in clay.

Anyone who lives in town knows that the intersection of New Road and Route 1 is the site of two especially dangerous jughandles that already cannot handle the volume of traffic that uses them.  A new housing development on New Road will only exacerbate this problem and surely lead to more accidents and unsafe driving conditions.  Traffic has already negatively affected South Brunswick as a whole and Kendall Park in particular.  Adding more cars to our roads will make a bad situation worse.

New housing developments will place a strain on an already-crowded school system.  South Brunswick High School currently has a student population of almost 3,000 and the district’s 12 schools have had to be restructured to accommodate increased capacity for younger grade levels.  Two notable examples: Brooks Crossing at Deans School has become a K-1 school and Indian Fields at Dayton School has become solely PK-K. 

South Brunswick’s infrastructure simply cannot sustain this level of development.
