Upcoming Elections: Responses From Candidates 

October 26, 2017

As we have done in every recent election for the Readington Township Committee, CFR has sent a questionnaire to the candidates.  All three candidates, Republicans John Albanese and Jonathan Heller, and Democrat Alan Harwick, have chosen to respond.  Our questions allow the candidates to comment on six broad topics that we think are important to our future.  As always, we limit the word count in the responses to allow the candidates equal space on our platform.   Read on to see where each candidate stands>>

Nelson Street Assessment

May 16, 2017
Followers of CFR will know that we are very conservative about new development in town, especially on previously undeveloped property. We have been following the Township’s proposal to build affordable housing units at Nelson Street in Whitehouse Station; last October we shared an article on the Nelson Street tract and based on information available at the time we were supportive of the proposal (1). Since October there has been heightened discussion about state affordable housing (AH) mandates, and further hearings and information on the development. We are keenly aware of the opposition to it by some residents in the vicinity of the development. So it won’t surprise you that we’ve been taking a fresh look at the proposal, which has recently been approved by the Planning Board.   More>>

Readington Quick Chek Store Application Update

August 21, 2017

We’ve had some questions on the status of the Quick Check store proposed at the corner of County Line Road and Route 22. The variance application for a convenience store with gas service continues through the process with the Board of Adjustment. There are intervenors involved who have the right to make their case. If the variance is approved, Quick Check will still have to come back before the Board and get a full site plan approved before they can proceed. ​

CFR weighs in on the Republican primary candidates for Township Committee. Read on to learn why we endorse the Albanese/Heller ticket.   Read Full Story>>

CFR Endorses Albanese & Heller for Township Committee 

November 5, 2017

Tuesday’s Election Choices - Remember to Think Global, but Act Local
 Readington has 3 candidates for 2 seats on the Township Committee. All three have relevant experience and have demonstrated their willingness to step up and serve their community in many capacities.

What is the Planning Board Working On?

October 23, 2017

The Planning Board has been working on updating local Ordinances to better reflect the current needs of residents and adjust for long-term planning. This includes a recent win-win update that allows for the growth of two key businesses who call Readington home while improving the impact they have on the community. Read more>>  

Update:  Ash, Red Oak & Pin Oak Trees at Risk

August 21, 2017

When the Star Ledger reports that millions of NJ trees will die, they are not exaggerating. This follows two of our previous articles on threats to local tree species, with especially dire consequences for the Ash tree. The Emerald Ash Borer may be tiny, but is not to be ignored. More>>

At the beginning of May, CFR requested the views on six topics from the Republican candidates for the primary for the two contested Township Committee positions.  The deadline for responding was Sunday, May 21st.  Four people are running for the two available seats.  The team of John Albanese and Jonathan Heller chose to respond.  The team of Britt Simon and Wayne Borella chose not to respond  Read Full Story>>

Affordable Housing Obligations & Background

May 1, 2017

Affordable housing is definitely a complex, and often confusing, topic. We wanted to bring you a simple document that helps clarify and de-mystify the issue. The more we tried to simplify it the more complicated it got. We've spent considerable time talking to experts on the subject to make sure that, in sorting through all the information, we remain accurate and on-point, and had several professional reviews of our drafts. We hope you'll find the resulting article helpful and useful. As we previously promised, we're also taking a close look at the proposal for the Nelson Street development and will share the results of our assessment when we're done. In the meantime, we ask you to stay abreast of conversations. Feel free to bring us questions and let us know how we're doing. Info@citizensforreadington.org Full Story>>
