A property owned by one of the township’s houses of worship is the subject of a proposal before the Toms River planning board to develop a six-home community.
The property, which carries a common address of 1184 West Whitty Road, is owned by Congregation B’nai Israel, located on Old Freehold Road. The property is adjacent to the B’nai Israel Memorial Park Cemetery, which carries an address of 1224 Whitty Road.
According to a planning board filing, K&K Developers is seeking board approval to subdivide the property into six lots on which single-family homes will be constructed. The property is in the township’s R-20 zone, which calls for single-family homes to be build on lots 20,000 square feet or more. The proposed lots will have areas ranging from 20,791 square feet to 37,770 square feet.
A minor variance for about 5-feet of lot width is also being sought.
The planning board will hear the case at its May 4, 2022 meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. at the township municipal complex.
