Applicant also seeks any additional exceptions, waivers, variances, interpretations, and other approvals reflected on the filed plans (as same may be further amended or revised from time to time without further notice) and as the Board may deem necessary during the review and processing of the Second Amended Application.
When this case is called, interested parties may appear, either in person or by attorney, and present any comments or information they may have regarding this Second Amended Application.  The hearing may be continued without further notice on such additional or other dates as the Board may determine.
The Second Amended Application and supporting materials (including maps and plans) will be available for public inspection, at least 10 days prior to the hearing, at the Office of the Planning Board Secretary of Bernards Township, and may be inspected at the Engineering Services Department, 277 South Maple Ave., Basking Ridge, New Jersey, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or at such other regular business hours as set by the Township.
