Princeton Planning Board meetings were held in 2005-6 to rezone the hospital site for the benefit of the hospital in their desire to sell the property. A 50 unit/acre density was granted the hospital (much higher than anywhere else in Princeton) and this density was a major factor in determining the price at which the hospital could sell the land. No resident in town benefits from this type of zoning – no Princeton resident can sell their land for a price based on the buyer building at ultra-high densities. In exchange the municipality was promised an open development with parks and playgrounds. The requirement for an open development was written into Borough Code, section 17A-193B. From Code: “A private, gated community is forbidden.” SEE FULL TEXT attached to this blog.
