DISCUSSION OF RT. 202 RECREATION PROPERTY
Reviewed and discussed latest revision of plans. Tree survey results were questioned. The following memo was written:

“To: Business Administrator
Re: Recreation Facility, Route 202

Now that the Route 202 recreation area is planned and approved, we would like to see a plan which shows the trees to be removed. It was our understanding that the project would follow the Township requirement which requires replacement of 25% of trees being removed.”

SITE PLAN REVIEW
Danza Group, Dkt. 395
Reviewed LOI, Archeological Study and plans.
Approved.

SOIL MOVEMENT PERMIT APPLICATIONS
Memo to Administrative Officer:
“The following soil movement applications were reviewed.

Anthony Errico, 32 Vail Place, Bl. 147, Lot 4.02, E-BD-216-1286, amended 1/29/02. We still do not feel that development of this type is good on this lot.

John P. O’Grady, Midvale Mountain Road, Bl. 1, Lot 159.02, E-BD-216-1297, dated 2/15/02. The soil movement is approved, but we prefer that the number of trees being removed be reduced. Please ask the applicant to work with the grade in front of the house so that many of the trees in the front can be preserved.”

CORRESPONDENCE
Reviewed a memo from Brian Campion about marking storm drains.

Reply to: Business Administrator
Re: Storm Drains

“We reviewed your note about the storm drain marking program. We would like to be involved. We will report to you later.
Another solution to the storm drain marking problem: Certain manufacturers of storm drains are actually labeling “Dump No Water – Drains to River” on the drain. There is also a picture of a fish on each end. The city of Hackensack is currently using them. They can be customized and they are on state contract. We may consider making this a requirement in future storm drain installations.”

Reviewed letter from DEP to Boswell concerning stream encroachment at the Forest Road bridge (which will be replaced).

OTHER ITEMS
J. Brotherton mentioned that Earth Day is April 22nd if someone has some sort of project.
Last year was clean up at Rt. 202 property.

M. Sadowski suggested a project could be something concerning the Mary Patrick property.

Linda Denier’s name was mentioned as a possible new member to the Commission.
