Rethink Piscataway Towne Center Zoning

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

There will be a town council meeting on July 25, 2017 set to approve a zoning change to the Ericsson property that stretches between Knightsbridge Road and Skiles Ave. on Hoes Lane in Piscataway. This petition is to ask the council to send the proposal back to the planning board for additional study and public input.

A "Towne Center" zone will allow for a traditional mixed use concept including retail shops, dry cleaners, hotels, medical services, convenience stores, and grocery stores along with fire and EMS stations, in addition to the construction up to 556 multi-family apartments, single family homes and townhouses, 83 of which would be affordable housing units. The public notice also includes such usage as child and adult day care, college student housing, provisions for off-street parking as well as loading and street parking.

Foreseeable impacts include: environmental degradation, increase traffic issues and overburdened schools.
