"We eliminated the cul-de-sac" said the applicant at last night's meeting.
WBNC recorded the full meeting, but the township required that we turn in our footage before we can post it, so we will post that as soon as we can.
We do have information, however, on what the houses will look like. For the houses that the Hepinstalls built on Crosswicks Chesterfield Road, people at the meeting (the public) liked the look of those and their historical feel. They wanted to be sure that the 2 new houses on Front Street look as good as them.
Debbie Kelly (President of the Historical Society): (Paraphrasing) In the past, we had review authority over what the houses looked like, but for the houses the Hepinstalls built on Crosswicks Chesterfield Road, we had approval authority, and we are pleased to have approval authority for these two new ones as well.
Board Member: The new homes being built will have to look historic, and the current ones are able to stay as they are.
Mrs. Hepinstall: We tried very hard to listen to everyone (their oppositions/suggestions) so Crosswicks can stay the village that it is.
Every board member who was present at the meeting voted yes on the application to create new houses on Front Street.
