The Don Guanella property is currently zoned Institutional and Residential, and therefore the property owner can develop the site with residential uses including single family homes, townhouses, carriage homes and twins. This plan would eliminate the large public park and recreational space.

Also, the front institutionally-zoned ground can include schools, churches, hospitals, nursing homes, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, a YMCA, and similar uses approximating ½ a million square feet.

| Example of Current Zoning Development

  • Single‐Family Detached Housing – 209 units
  • Over ½ million square feet – Medical/Dental Buildings; School; Prison; Hospital

If a plan based on current zoning is pursued, MORE TRAFFIC  will be generated.   

Additionally, none of these alternatives would provide the Township and the School District the amount of tax revenue provided by the Town Center
