Andrew Bayer Quoted in Article Discussing End of Holmdel-Hazlet Affordable Housing Dispute
Andrew Bayer, partner at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted on Patch.com discussing a recent settlement agreement putting an end to the legal dispute over the 50-unit affordable housing project being built in Holmdel Township close to the border of Hazlet, which filed three lawsuits after the development plan was approved. Bayer, attorney for Holmdel Township, made the statements before the Holmdel Township Committee.
"The settlement agreement will result in the dismissal of the three lawsuits," said Andrew Bayer, attorney for Township of Holmdel, in a recent meeting.
According to the attorney, the location of the development, which is close proximity to single-family homes, is one of the key points of the settlement agreement. The buildings and parking lots in the new development will have to be pushed further away from the Hazlet border, as much as 100 feet in some cases, compared to what was originally planned.
The total number of apartments will still be the same and 100 percent of them will be affordable housing.
Bayer also said that the settlement requires that Holmdel revise the zoning ordinance to match the new concept plan, which sets standards further back from the Hazlet border.
