Developer is involved in a dispute with the state over another piece of land.
A proposed plan for redeveloping a site on Route 202/206, with the inclusion of a supermarket and hotel, has been put on hold because of a dispute between the contractor and the state. According to Lance Boxer, chairman of the Bedminster Land Use Board, plans were moving along until June when the township received a call from Carl Freedman, of Partners Development, which was partnering with ARC Properties on this proposed Bedminster Village Plan. “We were told he was in a dispute with the state, and we didn’t know how it would end up being resolved,” Boxer said. “He asked us to suspend activities on his behalf for the development.” “But we haven’t heard anything back yet,” he added.

On Dec. 9, 2009, Basking Ridge Patch launched as a hyper-local, online news site hoping to serve all the informational needs of Basking Ridge Township (and sometimes Bernardsville, Bernards and more). (Remember this intro?) And then on July 30, 2010, Bridgewater Patch launched as another hyper-local online news site to serve the residents of Bridgewater and the surrounding county. (How about this intro?) We like to think in the two to three years since, we’ve lived up to what we set out to do. We’re not alone, of course. Patch Media has more than 860 sites across 21 states and continues to grow, as the need for providing online, community news expands. This is also true locally, as we’ve decided to launch Bernardsville-Bedminster Patch …

Board attorney Thomas Collins Jr. also suggested that before proceeding further the board first might want clarification from the governing body on whether a cemetery can be considered an intended use under the environmental easement placed…
