The Brick Township planning board, on Wednesday night, is set to consider an application by Roy Rogers to construct a restaurant at the corner of Brick Boulevard and Molly Lane.
The application has proved controversial and has been opposed by some residents whose properties neighbor the would-be location, at the northwest corner of the intersection.
A public hearing on the application had been scheduled for Sept. 26, but was carried to tonight's meeting.
In June, representatives for Roy Rogers put forth a revised application to the board. The redesign was intended to relieve many of the apprehensions that board members may have had with the initial design — such as where the customer drive-through and loading areas of the proposed establishment would be.
Planner/Engineer Robert Sive said at the time that the main changes from the initial plan to the second, conceptual plan of the site were the reduction from 3,000 square feet to 2,000 square feet, and the relocation of the drive-through area from the center of the property to the rear of the property.
Attorney Ron Gasiorowski, representing objectors to the project, argued at the time that that the new conceptual plan could not be used by the board to determine the final vote on the application, which prompted the initial delaying of the vote until September.
