APPROVAL OF MINUTES November 14, 2005 Regular Meeting and Closed Session Minutes Motion by Jay Newman second by Barbara Camp to approve the Minutes as written. During roll call vote all four Committee members present voted in the affirmative. REPORT OF GOVERNING BODY MEMBERS Barbara Camp, reminded everyone that they still could obtain a free flu shot from the County Board of Health. Andrew McCrosson, reported on a discussion he had with Dick Yard from Shoreline Railroad Museum about transporting people by bus/shuttle from the Train Station to places around the Tuckahoe area. A bus is being donated for this use and Mr. Yard asked if the Township would be willing to provide the insurance. Mr. Young advised that in addition to insurance, there are extensive regulations and licensing that would need to be complied with. Mr. Yard wanted it ready to use immediately so that it could be utilized during the next several weekends during the Christmas season train runs. The Committee was receptive to the concept however due to time constraints and the fact that funds are not available from the budget at this time of the year, the matter would be considered for next year. It was reported that over 600 people traveled on the train between Tuckahoe and Richland this past weekend.
Richard Palombo, Mayor, congratulated employees Leroy Shone for receiving Public Works Manager Certification, and Duane Terwilliger and Michael Spear for obtaining the Certified Playground Safety Inspector Certifications. OTHER REPORTS Wanda Gaglione, Municipal Clerk, reminded everyone of the GTAMA event, Christmas in the Country, this weekend. The Township Committee has been invited to ride in the parade. Daniel Young, Municipal Attorney, reported on two undersized lots that were donated by the Keck Est. to the Township, Block 485, Lots 35 & 36. He asked if the Township wanted to authorize title insurance on the lots which would cost about $300. He recommended it to simplify any future transfers that could occur with this property. Motion was made by Andrew McCrosson, second by Jay Newman to authorize attorney to obtain title insurance. During roll call vote all four Committee members present voted in the affirmative. PRESENTATION 1. Dr. Lawrence Hobdell, New Superintendent of Upper Township Schools. Dr. Hobdell introduced himself and discussed some of the things he thought the School and Township could do together. He praised the generosity of the Township Committee and employees and listed some of the services provided such as trash disposal, snow removal, sports field maintenance, Township budget contribution/tax relief, and stated that the school deeply appreciates the help. He discussed sharing services such as computer software training, Right-to-Know program, asbestos awareness, lock-out/tagout training. He discussed snow removal. Lastly, he discussed the school budget and the tax impact on the community. The Mayor also listed items the Township could offer assistance with such as advice on insurance choices especially with health insurance. He stated that the Township has done very well in keeping health insurance costs significantly low because of our expertise in investigating the plans available. He commented on the good partnership the school and the Township have with UTTV and that Paul Dietrich and Glen Steward did a great job in getting the station operational. This was something the Mayor worked on implementing not only for information on community events but to be utilized as a part of the Township’s disaster preparedness plan. He is happy that it is available and would like to expand it further with more programs from the school. When discussing the subject of budgets he commented that the Township does not have the excessive surpluses that were enjoyed in the past. “Unfortunately the surplus has begun to dry up so we are faced with the same type of situation that the schools do in that our allocations from the State are somewhat frozen as well. The Township certainly would be willing to partner with the school and do some things together to save money.” He thanked Dr. Hobdell for attending this meeting. 2. Marcia Shiffman, Mazer Consulting, Plan Endorsement Petition-Smart Growth. The Plan Endorsement Petition is part of the Smart Growth study funded by the State of New Jersey. It was approved by the Upper Township Planning Board at their last
meeting and is now ready for the Committee’s review and endorsement and then will be sent to the State to go through their review process. She explained that Plan Endorsement is a process used as a mechanism for review to ensure our development plans are consistent with the state development /redevelopment plan. As part of the state process of plan endorsement the Township has the ability to delineate growth centers, which is critical for Upper Township. This process replaces the CAFRA Centers Designation process. At this point Upper Township is in “limbo” because CAFRA Centers Designations expired in February, 2005, and the CAFRA centers are the only place you can have any intensive development in terms of lot coverage. A key element and requirement of the study is the Plan Endorsement Agenda. It is very important to the Township. It lists planning and developmental activities planned for the near future and for long-term; it involves the Township as well as regional areas where the Township may offer support services and activities, and includes projects such as transportation improvements that would help implement our plan. Endorsement of this plan or petition signifies the agreement by these agencies of the items on the agenda. The study was funded by the Office of Smart Growth to the three municipalities working together--Upper, Middle and Dennis Townships. These municipalities are at various stages of this process with Upper Township being at the forefront in getting the plan done and submitted. She discussed deadlines; in March the CAFRA Plan needs to be declared complete for the Township to have their old CAFRA centers designation retained which is why it is important to get the plan approved and into the State. The process to this point has been comprehensive and has been ongoing for almost a year and a half. At the beginning of the process representatives from all three municipalities met to talk about the plan and issues important both locally and regionally. Those issues have been incorporated into the plan. There were many delays. One of the key components of the plan is the Gibson Bill which is a review of the water supply for Cape May County. The study was on hold while waiting for information of that Bill in looking at “buildout” so that this information could be incorporated into the plan. There were numerous meetings with the Office of Smart Growth’s interagency team to review the plan and the centers. It will finally be submitted to the State and hopefully be approved. There are four Centers that have been defined. Two are Town Centers on Rt. 9; the Palermo-Beesley’s Point area and Seaville. Petersburg and Tuckahoe are defined as Village Centers. The center designation is significant because of development density, you are allowed greater development in a Town Center versus a Village Center. The centers are defined by number of people and number of jobs, size of center etc. She discussed the “buildout” study of each of the centers as to potential building lots and potential size of commercial areas of each. She discussed the Tuckahoe Village Center and the opportunities with the train station, improvement plans in process to rebuild Rt. 50 bridge over Tuckahoe River and streetscapes planned. Both Tuckahoe and Petersburg are CAFRA Villages and Pineland Villages as well.
The last major item in the Plan Endorsement Study is the Implementation Agenda which includes examination of land use, transportation, infrastructure, water/sewer, housing, historic preservation, and conservation. She discussed Strathmere, Tuckahoe and the rail service, and Beesley’s Point redevelopment. Transportation was discussed as to interchange improvements at Parkway Exit 20, etc. Regional transportation issues were discussed such as a regional shuttle to go from campgrounds to shore areas and could include the Tuckahoe area rail service bus/shuttle proposal discussed earlier in this meeting. Other items discussed were Historic Preservation guidelines, Conservation-preparing an inventory required for Green Acres funding, and an Environmental Assessment Ordinance for environmentally constrained areas. Committeeman McCrosson commented on the enormous amount of work put into the document and that the plan is critical to Upper Township. A good example of the importance of it is the shopping center development at the intersection of Rt. 9 and Roosevelt Boulevard, which would have been halted if we did not go forward with this process. Township Engineer Paul Dietrich commented on how the process developed, that it began in 1998 and languished for two years at the State level and explained how it got to this point. He also stated that during public comment at the Planning Board that there were no negative comments from the public. During the public hearing portion of the meeting Sonia Forey, asked about the streetscape improvements promised for Tuckahoe. Mr. Dietrich stated that information from NJDOT is that in winter 2006 the Rt. 49 Bridge will be replaced and in 2007-2008 the Rt. 50 Bridge and streetscape improvements are scheduled. Sandy Simpson from Beesley’s Point asked a question about the power plant and that if it is sold would higher pollution standards be imposed, and what is latest information on the plant. Mayor Palombo stated that there are ongoing meetings and conference calls about the plant almost daily and that there may an outside entity looking at the site but no official notification has been received. He stated that if the site continues to operate as a power generating plant then any new owner would have to conform to current clean air standards. Resolution number 215-2005 to accept the report and submit it to the State was adopted, see below. RESOLUTIONS 3. Acceptance of Plan Endorsement Report and submission to State Planning Commission.
