Maplewood meeting to discuss Toomey’s redevelopment

MAPLEWOOD, NJ — The township of Maplewood will hold a community meeting to discuss the draft redevelopment plan for the Toomey’s Automotive site, located at 104 Baker St. The meeting will be Monday, Nov. 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Parlor at The Woodland, 60 Woodland Road, Maplewood.

In July 2018 the Maplewood Township Committee designated the former Toomey’s site as an “area in need of rehabilitation” and engaged a licensed planner to prepare a draft redevelopment plan. The plan sets forth standards for the construction of buildings and other improvements at 104 Baker St.

The meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the plan, ask questions and offer comments. No formal action will be taken at the community meeting. The Township Committee will consider input from the community meeting as it prepares a final draft.

A representative from the planning firm will be present, as will members of the Maplewood Township Committee.
