Yeshiva Dormitory Public Hearing Continues Tonight

A recap from the last Freehold Borough Planning Board meeting before the public hearing for the Yeshiva Dormitory application continues at tonight’s meeting.

The Freehold Borough Planning Board will meet tonight at 7 p.m. in Borough Hall to hear the remainder of the public hearing for the Yeshiva Dormitory application.

The previous public hearing meeting for the application was held on Wednesday, Jan. 9. When no decision was reached after the two-and-a-half hour meeting, the rest of the hearing was moved to Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Attorney Edward F. Liston Jr. was brought into the Jan. 9 meeting by Jean Holtz and Marianne Earle to represent the residents of Broad Street. Liston cross-examined Mike Geller, the planner of the dormitory, and Greg Clark, the architect.

Following the cross-examinations, Liston called Gordon Gemma as a professional planner. Gemma started his testimony, but was unable to finish because of a 9:30 p.m. cap placed by the board.

At tonight’s meeting, Gemma will finish his testimony and Liston will call two more people to speak to the board.

The board will make its decision about the dormitory after a public comment session is held. That session will take place after all necessary persons are called.

Thanks for the correction, Michelle. The Borough Calendar shows the meeting being at 7:30 - http://www.freeholdboro.org/calendar/ but I called Borough Hall to check, and they said the meeting is at 7 p.m.
