ORDINANCE NO. 5-2015
ORDINANCE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LIVINGSTON AMENDING CHAPTER 170 OF THE CODE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LIVINGSTON
WHEREAS, the 2007 Master Plan notes that zone district lines sometimes run through a lot with the result that the lot is a split-zoned lot that straddles two or more districts, thus necessitating variances in order that the lot can be developed, and the Master Plan recommends adjusting district boundary lines to reduce or eliminate split-zoned lots; and
WHEREAS, a review of lots fronting on East Mount Pleasant Avenue between the Livingston Avenue intersection and Rossmore Terrace has identified lots in Tax Blocks 1503, 1512, and 3701 to which the Master Plan recommendation applies; and
WHEREAS, the recommendation in the 2007 Master Plan can be accomplished by rezoning specific lots in those Tax Blocks;
