                                 TOWNSHIP OF CLINTON
                               REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING
                                     JULY 8, 2009



Mayor Cimei introduced the matter.

Mr. Joss discussed a letter received from the Waters’ Edge Homeowners’ Association,
requesting permission to erect a sign at the entrance to their development. A discussion was held
as to whether the Township wants to allow signs to be placed on Township property. Mr. Joss
indicated a license would need to be granted for this purpose and the sign would have to be
consistent with the sign ordinance.

Ms. Waterbury discussed issues surrounding placing such a sign on Township property.

A discussion was also held regarding having a sign that says, “no outlet”, as the concern appears
to be that drivers do not realize that Route 513 ends at the traffic light at Route 31. Mr. Joss
agreed to speak with the Association to determine the best course of action, which may be to
place a “no outlet” sign on the roadway.

3. Transportation Committee

Mayor Cimei stated he would like to establish a subcommittee to work with NJ Transit. He
named: Chris D’Alleinne (PB Chair) or designee, Grace Hoefig (School Board), John Lazarus,
Amy Switlyk, Councilman Howard, Councilwoman Apgar, Mr. Joss, and the Mayor (based on
quorum limitations).

PUBLIC COMMENTS:

There were no public comments.

REPORTS:

Councilman Marra:
None.

Councilwoman Apgar:
Councilwoman Apgar reported the last Board of Health meeting was cancelled.

Councilwoman Apgar stated she attended a Freeholder meeting the previous day and noted there

include borrowing county employees for the administration and coordination of clinics.

Councilwoman Apgar also discussed a potential restructuring in the County Clerk’s office, and a
proposed shared service for printing needs.

                               REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING
                                     JULY 8, 2009

Councilman Krommenhoek discussed the last Recreation Department meeting and noted the
Summer Recreation Program has had a successful beginning. The Committee has also begun
work on Community Day 2010.

Councilman Krommenhoek reported on the Board of Education meeting held on June 15, 2009,
and commented the Board is supporting the donation of the Vought House to the non-profit that
has expressed interest (1759 Vought House, Inc.).

Councilman Krommenhoek also indicated meeting of the Annandale Citizens Advisory Group
was held with subcommittees formed to study specific issues relative to the village, such as the
train station, lumber yard, etc.

Mayor Cimei:
None.

Councilman Howard:
Councilman Howard reported on the June 30, 2009 meeting of the Open Space Advisory
committee, noting that John Sladicka has successfully acquired donated materials for the parking
area at Hacketts Preserve. Several Open Space members have offered to visit the Windy Acres
property to document conditions there.

Mr. Howard reported the Planning Board met on July 6, 2009, and prior to that meeting the
ordinance committee reviewed several ordinances. They also reviewed sign ordinance
violations and felt many issues are related to education. Mr. Howard stated the Ordinance
Committee would like to ask Mr. William Brinton, author of the sign ordinance, to revisit
temporary and special event signs. Councilwoman Apgar asked if Mr. Brinton could look at the
section relative to banners as well.

The Mayor stressed it is important to be consistent and prudent in our sign ordinance and
indicated he has received emails complimenting the Township on the article in the newsletter
explaining sign restrictions.

Mr. Howard indicated the Planning Board meeting had a public hearing for the Beaver Brook
Homestead and the plan presented is very similar to the concept seen last year. It appears there
is a lot of parking towards the front which can be moved to the rear of the property. There was a
committee formed to determine the feasibly of moving the parking. If the parking can be
relocated to the rear of the Homestead the view from Beaver Avenue will remain basically the
same as it is currently.

A discussion of accessory apartments and the COAH obligation that would be generated by the
current development plan for the Homestead was held.

Mr. Howard stated the Environmental Commission would meet the next day with a meeting
scheduled prior to review the final revision of the draft tree ordinance, which will address clear
cutting and specimen tress. The ordinance will then be submitted to the Planning Board for
review.

of the Township of Clinton, 2003, is hereby supplemented and amended to add a new subsection
entitled “Solar Energy Systems” that regulates the use of solar panels within the Township, as

       §165-110 Public Utilities.

       A.    Public Utilities.

             Nothing in this part shall be interpreted as prohibiting public utility distribution
             facilities, such as water distribution lines, sanitary sewers and telephone and electric
             distribution lines, along with related attendant facilities intended for local service,
             which utility systems are permitted in all zone districts when approved by the

       B.    Private Utilities.

       (1)     Solar Energy System


       (a)     The primary purpose of a solar energy system, whether arranged as a single solar
               panel or a solar panel array, shall be to provide energy for the principal use and
               other permitted accessory uses on the property where the solar energy system is
               located and shall not be for the generation of power to be sold for commercial
               purposes. This provision shall not be interpreted to prohibit the disposition of
               excess power generated from a solar energy system back to a public electric
               utility provider by which the principal use is served.

       (b)     Roof-Mounted Solar Energy Systems

               (1)     Roof-mounted solar energy systems are permitted accessory uses in all
