This was the former Gabrellian site plan (McKee site). After review of the new site plan, the following comments were made to the Planning Board:
Please have the applicant consider our recommendation of use of a riparian buffer along Masonicus Brook. We recommend small native shrubs (cat tails, grasses), native deciduous trees and evergreens.”

Memo to Administrative Officer
“After review of the Environmental Impact Statement for this project, the Environmental Commission continues to have concerns about flood prevention and wildlife in this area.
The wetlands on this property are an important habitat. They are adjacent to other preserved properties on the other side of I-287. Wildlife can cross I-287 through culverts.
There are homes in the area that have flooding problems (water in basements). If neighboring residents have problems already, it will only get worse with development.
We suggest the town purchase the wetlands, and approve development on the other sections of this site.”
Phillips Scientific, 31 Industrial Avenue, approved.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m. The next Environmental Commission meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 24, 2003 at 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Building, 475 Corporate Drive, Mahwah, N.J.
