Preserve Far Hills started this petition to Far Hills Mayor, Paul J. Vallone, M.D.

The Borough of Far Hills is planning to build 105 2-4 bedroom townhomes and 29 affordable housing units at the intersection of Route 202 and Lake Road with the developer, Pulte Homes.

This community-altering event affects Far Hills and surrounding towns. It could drastically increase our taxes, impact the value of our homes, affect our infrastructure, and cause a huge population increase. Residents have been contacting the mayor directly for months now requesting information on the development with no response.

The resident action committee, Preserve Far Hills Inc. shared an alternative housing plan with the Mayor from RPM Development that we believe could lead to a lower increase in taxes than the proposed Pulte Homes plan.

We believe that if the town cooperates, we can create a better solution for ALL residents in Far Hills and surrounding towns.

MAJOR ISSUES WITH THE TOWN’S CURRENT PLAN:

  • POSSIBLE TAX INCREASE
  • IF THE 105 TOWNHOMES TURN OUT TO NOT BE AGE-RESTRICTED, FAR HILLS STUDENTS MAY EXCEED BERNARDSVILLE SCHOOL CAPACITY
  • TRAFFIC CONGESTION
  • INFRASTRUCTURE OVERLOAD
  • BOROUGH SEWER AND WATER
  • POLICE, FIRE AND SAFETY CONCERNS

We urge the Borough of Far Hills to listen to residents and consider alternate options.
