The Planning Board continues the hearing to February.
The Middletown Township Planning Board heard more testimony from the developer who is eyeing the wooded Taylor Lane tract in Middletown, but took no action on the application at its meeting Wednesday. Testimony will continue at the Feb. meeting.

Applicant for 246-unit residential development gives some testimony before meeting comes to close.
About 40 residents waited three hours to participate in a public hearing concerning a large housing development on Route 35 South, at Taylor Lane. But they were told they will have to come back again, on Jan. 16 -- and likely another date not yet scheduled -- to learn more about the large-scale 246-unit project on 31 acres proposed for Taylor Lane, to ask questions and to voice comments. The applicant for American Properties in Middletown was afforded only about 45 minutes at the end of a long night of board business to testify before the Planning Board about the size and scope of the project and need for waivers and variances. The public portion of the meeting ended at 10 p.m. so that members could go into closed session to discuss …

The approval is contingent upon satisfying several conditions.
The Islamic Society of Monmouth County received approval from the Middletown Planning Board Wednesday to expand their parking lot and community center on its Red Hill Road property.

A proposal to expand parking and construct a community center by The Islamic Society of Monmouth County will be revisited by the Middletown Planning Board in July after revisions are submitted.
The Middletown Township Planning Board will revisit a proposal to expand parking and construct a community center by The Islamic Society of Monmouth County in July after revisions are submitted. The matter was rescheduled for Wednesday, July 11, at which time members of the public who wish to comment on the Society's plans for more parking and a community center will be heard. More than 100 people attended the meeting Wednesday, which verged on the edge of boisterous when a few members of the public attempted to make comments about Muslims which the board attorney deemed unrelated to the applicant's testimony. Planning Board Vice Chairman Carl Rathjen showed no patience for the opinionated speakers, telling them to "stand down" to a few …

A few photos of the sights outside before and after the Planning Board meeting
With two contentious applications before the Middletown Planning Board tonight, a nearly full moon cast a glow over Town Hall that provided a little scenic relief while arriving and leaving. Patch took the opportunity to take a few shots of the before and after moon glow. In case you walked right past it, the sight was zoomed in on in a few photos above. Oh, and check back for the latest on the Avaya site application and the White Castle hearing. Can you guess which one was stalled until May? In the meantime, enjoy the photos.
