Sylvester's Property Plans, Billboard Talks Resume
Hasbrouck Heights Zoning Board meeting Thursday will include discussion of plans to subdivide the old Sylvester's Restaurant property, and a media company tries for the third time to get approval for a billboard on Route 17.
A possible new future for the old Sylvester's Restaurant property will be heard by the Hasbrouck Heights Zoning Board this Thursday as an applicant returns with plans to subdivide the property in order to construct four two-family homes.
Also the Zoning Board will once again hear from Dougan Outdoor Media which returns with revised plans to construct a billboard on Route 17 North.
The Terrace Avenue property known as the former Sylvester's property has been vacant for a number of years. The former building, which shows significant deterioration, remains on the site. In recent years it's been deeemed as an area in need of improvement by borough officials and the Planning Board.
The applicant, Richard Banca and Ralph Manefredonia, submitted an application to the Planning Board last summer but had to withdraw as it was deemed that Zoning Board approval would be needed instead.
Dougan Outdoor Media was advised back in October it would have to revise its plans once again if it wished to further pursue the construction of a billboard on Route 17.
The media company had tried to have its application heard again in the fall after having been denied its plans over the summer, but Zoning Board members felt the changes were not significant enough advising new plans would be required before a new hearing could begin.
Both applications are expected to be heard Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers.
