“Redevelopment and recognition the talk at Burlington Township Council meeting,” Kelly Flynn, The Burlington Township Sun, April 27, 2017
“… [There are] several areas in the township that are up for redevelopment ordinances,” Township Administrator Walter Corter said.
Corter said the township is dealing with properties that are old, contaminated and need to be torn down. As such, the township’s redevelopment approval process has been designed to protect not only business owners but the town, he said.
“There are things we can do for them to help them with process,” Corter said, citing five-year tax abatements as an incentive to redevelopers.
At last Tuesday’s meeting, council passed an ordinance entitled “DCT/McCollister’s Tract Redevelopment Plan,” which Corter said is representative of the changes taking place in Burlington Township. The ordinance allows for a warehouse to be built on Block 147.”
