Special Meeting On Bloomfield Ave. Development


Share post:

Since June, the Verona Board of Adjustment has heard hours of testimony on a proposed commercial and residential development at 176 and 200 Bloomfield Avenue. The matter could come to a head at a special board meeting on Tuesday, November 27.

Testimony that should have been given at the board’s November 8 meeting was deferred after witnesses for the developer, Sparta-based DMH2, were unable to attend because of hurricane-related issues.

The project, which would replace two steeply wooded lots across from Everett Field with 7,000 feet of commercial space and 14 two-bedroom rentals, has drawn sharp opposition from homeowners on nearby streets. According to testimony by witnesses for DMH2, the company will need as many as 90 days of blasting to clear the site and level it for construction.

The special meeting will be held in the ballroom of the Verona Community Center at 7:30 p.m. It is open to the public.

The original site plan for the proposed development.
