General Information of the Building Department
The Building Department issued 2000 permits in 2000 with a construction value of $19,634,149, compared to 1929 permits in 1999 with a construction value of $19,683,536.
The Township received a total of $385,408 in revenue from various permits and fees, and Department personnel performed inspections from the following Building Department activities:
An ongoing project, the effort to catalog historic Building Department records, continued throughout 2000. Many residents and design professionals have enjoyed the benefits of this project through the retrieval of past permit information and plans. This project will be ongoing through 2001 as well.
During 2000, the Planning Board heard some significant applications. The Glenpointe Senior Living Project, an Assisted Living and Independent Living Facility, spanned many public hearings and will see the start of construction in 2001. Also in the Glenpointe Complex, a Concept Review of a new multistory office building was discussed, complete with monorail connecting the office building to the parking garage. The residential development proposed for the Fairleigh Dickinson ball field property, as of the year's end, never went to public hearings. The Planning Board also began the task of reviewing and updating the Township Master Plan, the blueprint for Township development. This process will continue through 2001 including workshops and public hearings on this important document.
Both the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment discussed and recommended several revisions to the Development Regulations. These included revisions to fences and retaining walls, two-family dwellings as existing nonconforming uses and, additions and alterations to nonconforming structures.
Significant applications heard by the Zoning Board of Adjustment included wireless communications facilities at 715 Linden Avenue and 1086 Teaneck Road. In addition, the Board of Adjustment began hearing the application of Willow Street Commons, a residential development to the south of Degraw Avenue. The Community School of Bergen County was before the Board with their proposed play field on the property of the former Town House. With these larger projects and an increase in residential variance requests, the Board found themselves meeting twice a month for most of 2000.
