Borough Moves Ahead With Vacant Lot Sale

Borough attorney formalized the subdividing of the borough owned vacant piece of property it wishes to sell in front of the Planning Board.

The borough will continue to move ahead with its plans to sell a vacant piece of land it owns on Central Avenue which sits in between a residential house and the borough’s playground and parking lot.  

Borough Attorney Ralph Chandless went in front of the Planning Board Wednesday night to formally present the proposed subdivision of the borough owned property separating the piece of property which sits vacant into its own lot which measures at 46.47 feet wide by 144 feet in depth for future sale. 

The lot is intended for the construction of a single-family home. Any future applicant would have to meet all the setback requirements as per borough ordinance and would not be allowed any variances, said Nick Melfi, borough’s construction code official.

The borough acquired this piece of property about 10 years ago as part of the land it used to construct the parking lot and playground which is known as Central Avenue Park and Police Memorial which was part of the new municipal building development.

The borough has intended to sell this unused vacant portion for some time. This past May the council passed a resolution to authorize the sale.

Planning Board members said they will grant the support of the subdivision of the land by way of a resolution.
