Aberdeen Council to Hear Public Tuesday on Glassworks

Ten days ago, the Aberdeen Township Council introduced and unanimously passed Ordinance 14-2010 for first reading on a major redevelopment plan involving the Anchor Glass property on Cliffwood Avenue, according to a detailed article in The Independent. The Council will take up the ordinance for second reading next Tuesday, 15 June, at which time the public can offer input. Somerset Development has been the named redeveloper since September 2006. The plan sounds rather interesting, based on what I've read in the above article. What are the pros and cons of this plan?

Looking back at the 1 June Council meeting, I noticed Ordinance 84-2010, which pays Lucas Brothers of Morganville just under $225,000 to do something called the Route 35 Crossing Project. I've not read anything about this project and the ordinance provides no details. Can someone offer some details on this?

The 1 June agenda also included a couple of ordinances changing the wording of local affordable housing codes and land development ordinances. It would be nice if such ordinances included an interpretive statement, like public referendums have when they appear on a ballot.
