Anyone with questions about the proposed rezoning of Dixiedale Farms to allow townhouses is invited to a 'Coffee with a Committeeman' to discuss the issue on Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Fairmount Country Store.

Committeeman Michael Kelly will be at the Fairmount Country Store at 10 a.m., and will stay until noon or as long as anyone has questions.  The informal conversation will be limited to approximately a half-dozen participants. Email Mr Kelly at to reserve your space. If interest warrants, a second conversation will be scheduled
for Sunday, Dec. 10, at the same time and location.

For additional information, the Township Committee has posted a list of frequently asked questions about affordable housing on its website:

The 30-acre Dixiedale Farms is located between Hillside Avenue and River Road, across from the Chatham Glen townhouses. The property is zoned for approximately 17 single-family homes. The developer, Sterling/Sun Homes, has asked the township to rezone the property to allow 54 luxury townhomes. A formal public hearing will be held on Thursday, Dec. 14, at 7:30 p.m.
before the Township Committee considers final adoption of the rezoning ordinance.
