2/24/21 Special Township Committee Meeting for the
340 Mount Kemble Redevelopment
Dear Residents,

At the January 20 meeting the Township Committee introduced the 340 Mount Kemble Avenue Redevelopment Ordinance. The proposal is to add a 225-room business-style hotel on the site. A copy of the Redevelopment Plan and “FAQ’s” (Frequently Asked Questions) are available here.

The site is one of three adjacent office parks making up the entire office complex located at 340, 350, and 412 Mount Kemble Avenue. Existing parking spaces at the adjacent office building are proposed to be removed to accommodate the new hotel building, and there will be very little disturbance of lands that are not already impervious surfaces (i.e. asphalt).
Next Steps:

  • A Special Township Committee meeting devoted to this project is scheduled for Wednesday, February 24 at 7:00 PM. This will be a public hearing for the ordinance and formal action may be taken. There will be a detailed presentation given by the Township’s Municipal Planner at this meeting. The public will then be able to ask questions about this project before any formal action is taken
  • If you are unable to participate via Zoom 2/24/21 and would like to make a public comment, please email, clerk@morristwp.com with your comment or question by 2/23/21
  • If (and when) the ordinance/plan is approved, a Redevelopment Agreement will be negotiated with the property owner and is subject to another approval by the Township Committee at a future public meeting
  • The applicant must then submit a site plan to the Planning Board, and the Planning Board will subsequently conduct its own public hearing on the site plan. The public will again be able to ask questions or make comments at that meeting prior to any vote by the Planning Board
  • If Planning Board approval is obtained, the applicant must then apply for construction permits before they will be able to commence with the construction of the hotel
