Matawan Planning & Zoning Board Meeting @ 7:30pm

There is a Planning & Zoning Board meeting tonight at 7:30pm at the Matawan Borough Community Center, 201 Broad St. Although there is no information regarding the Agenda for this meeting we believe it pertains to the Big Blue House on Main Street.

The current owner wants to change the zoning so he can redesign it into offices. Nearby residents are opposed to rezoning for quality of life issues. The Historical Society is opposed to rezoning as the home is of historical significance. It is a beautiful home which has been neglected and it would be an asset to Matawan if kept residential. If someone, and we are sure they are out there, who loves to restore old homes had the opportunity it could be brought back to its former glory.

Some residents wanted to see the Train Station torn down. Well look at it now. A new coat of paint brings it back. Once the interior is renovated we are confident it can be put to good use as a historical treasure.


If keeping this Matawan treasure residential is important to you, please attend this meeting. Let your voices be heard!

Red Bank uses theirs as sort of a welcome center. I think you can still get tickets there, too, which wouldn't really pertain to Matawan, but I like the welcome center concept.
