BERKELEY – The Department of Environmental Protection is hearing comments on a proposed townhouse development off of Route 9.

The developer is looking to build 74 two-bedroom condominiums, a clubhouse, and outdoor recreation. It is sited on 12.62 acres at Lot 26.01, Block 1014. The entrance to the complex would be on Route 9. It would back up against Tioga Avenue, although there would not be any connecting road to that neighborhood.

Currently, the property is owned by the Diocese of Trenton. The developer would be R. Stone and Company, 201 Main Street in Toms River.

The comment period lasts until May 4. They can be sent to NJDEP, Land Use Regulation Program, P.O. Box 420, Mail Code 501-02A, 501 E. State Street, Trenton, NJ 08625-0439. Attention: Dana Galbreath. The application can be viewed at the township clerk’s office.
