The hearing on the proposed Stop and Shop, which was originally scheduled for Dec. 17, is now set for the Jan. 28 Millburn Zoning Board Meeting.
Residents for Traffic Safety urges those concerned with the impact on traffic, safety and quality life to attend and actively participate when public questioning begins.
According to the Millburn-Short Hills organization the Millburn Zoning Board's traffic consultant will question Stop and Shop's traffic expert.
“The over-riding issue is the traffic that will be generated by a 69,000 square foot supermarket, the vast majority of which — and all delivery trucks — will enter and exit via Millburn Avenue,” spokesperson Rick Sacks pointed out. “Stop & Shop’s own consultants predict 6,150 cars will visit the site daily. Residents need to know these facts, listen to the testimony and make their concerns known.”
The grass-roots organization had held its own public forum on Nov. 29, which it summarized in a letter to The Millburn-Short Hills Patch. More information on the organization can be found on its website.
