HOLMDEL – The Holmdel Zoning Board of Adjustment has rescheduled a public hearing regarding the proposed construction of a New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) regulator station for Sept. 12.
According to the agenda for the zoners’ Aug. 1 meeting, the board was scheduled to decide if the application filed by NJNG was complete and could advance to a public hearing.
The hearing would have included testimony about the project and comments from members of the public, according to the board.
NJNG is seeking variances from the board to construct a regulator station, access and utilities on a 16.51-acre site at 960 Holmdel Road, Holmdel.
The company is a statewide supplier of natural gas and serves more than 525,000 customers in Monmouth, Ocean, Morris, Middlesex and Burlington counties, according to its website.
The company’s proposal for the same type of facility at 970 Holmdel Road was denied by the zoning board in 2016. NJNG is now presenting the facility on a neighboring property, according to municipal officials.
