MIDDLETOWN — The Middletown Planning Board will hold a special meeting Wednesday to hear continued testimony in a plan to build town homes and apartments at the former Avaya Inc. site in the Lincroft section of town.
The Four Ponds Center Association’s plan calls for 342 units to be built on the roughly 67-acre tract of land. A total of 68 of the units – about 20 percent – would be apartments that would be designated as affordable housing, while the remaining 274 would be market-rate townhouses.
The controversial application has been before the Planning Board for more than year. Some residents have said they are worried the proposed homes would bring traffic to the area.
A group called SONIC, Save our Neighborhood’s Integrity and Character, has hired an attorney to fight the proposed plan for the Middletown-Lincroft Road property.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the main meeting room of Town Hall, 1 Kings Highway.
