Planning Board members won't hear any testimony about a proposed Taylor Lane townhome complex during their meeting Wednesday night. 

Rather, after scheduling conflicts precluded testimony from continuing this month, the board's December meeting will be used to settle on a date when the proposal again can be heard. 

American Properties at Middletown is seeking preliminary and final major subdivision and site plan approval to construct 196 townhomes and 49 affordable units, along with a 3,600 square foot clubhouse and a pool. Locals are unhappy with the plan, citing traffic and pedestrian safety concerns with the project.

The meeting opens at 6:30 p.m. in Middletown’s municipal building.

Last month, Peter Steck, a planner retained by objectors to the site, said that Taylor Lane will become a busier roadway if the complex is built, and residents living on the eastern side of the complex could have a potentially dangerous walk to the amenities located across that road.

The complete Planning Board agenda for December is available here through the township's website
