The Flemington Community Partnership (FCP) believes that the time is now for the Courthouse Square Project to move forward.

We urge you to:

  • View the modified plans presented by the developer at the 9/23/19 Borough Council meeting here:
    https://www.courthousesquareflemington.com/proposedplans
  • The plans show the project as approved by the Borough Planning Board in 2018.
  • The new plans show the proposed modifications the developer has put forth in response to community input and the original requests of the Friends of Historic Flemington.
  • The FCP urges you to please sign your name to this petition to show your support for moving the Courthouse Square Project forward now. 

The Flemington Community Partnership (FCP) is a designated, non-profit district management corporation, whose purpose is “To foster a thriving business community in the Borough of Flemington” and “plan for the district and the businesses included within its boundaries” and “balance the business mix of the district.”  The majority of our FCP Stakeholders (Property Owners and Business Owners) believe that our Main Street will be vastly improved by the Courthouse Square Project which will bring new customers and community members, jobs, new active mix of uses, and new reasons to come to Flemington’s Historic Main Street. 

The FCP Board unanimously agrees the past efforts of the Council and the Community and the Friends of Historic Flemington have resulted in positive changes made by the developer. We have a better project because of these discussions and the community input. However, we believe it is unfair for a small minority group to continue to negatively impact our small businesses and our economic outlook with a blighted empty building on our Main Street. 

In recent months the Friends of Historic Flemington have stated publicly that they will not settle their lawsuits against the Borough which have blocked the Project from moving forward. On 9/23/19 the Friends of Historic Flemington stated that a settlement letter was submitted to the Borough Council however, the Friends of Historic Flemington did not present the settlement letter to the public. 

We the undersigned request:

  • A public explanation from the Friends of Historic Flemington outlining the reason for their lawsuit and why the lawsuits continue after the developer addressed their original concerns (re: overall height and saving historic buildings).
  • An explanation to the public of the recent Friends of Historic Flemington settlement letter contents and any further changes being requested of the developer.
  • An immediate transparent, fair and reasonable negotiation to settle the lawsuits that are preventing this project from moving forward.

Again, the Flemington Community Partnership believes that the time is now for the Courthouse Square Project to move forward and we ask that you sign your name to this petition to show your support. 

Sincerely, 
The Flemington Community Partnership Board
