Gloucester Twp recently had meetings concerning a 5 acre parcel of land located at 1495 Chews Landing Road to allow a 72 unit apartment complex to be built. Directly next to this 5 acre parcel is a 100+ year old family owned farm, one of the last working farms in Gloucester Township at 1501 Chews Landing Road. Also in extremely close proximity is Gloucester Township's fairly new Timber Creek Dog park located at 1731 Chews Landing Road.
Salem County recently celebrated the preservation of a family farm owned since 1929. Senator Sweeney had said we are the "Garden State" and expressed the importance of maintaining our open space, heritage and even said "once its gone its gone".
Case in point. http://www.snjtoday.com/story/37935151/nearly-375-acres-of-cowtown-rodeo-becomes-federally-preserved-land?utm_source=SocialMedia&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_campaign=Cowtown+Land+Protection+04.11.18
Mt. Laurel has also saved & preserved land from development, in fact the same developer in this case.
Residents expressed concerns to the Township Council about public safety, encroachment on this beautiful farm and park area, traffic flow, pollution, etc.
Mayor Mayer must put the township's heritage and it's people first. A Master Plan was developed for this exact scenario.
We the People of Gloucester Township and the Garden State request the land otherwise known as 1495 Chews Landing Road be preserved along with the 100+ year old family farm at 1501 Chews Landing Road as open space to preserve our history, heritage and beauty.
