More Homes for Monmouth County

Although I would rather see less development in Monmouth County than more, I generally don't support government efforts to restrict the use of private property. If I was smart enough to buy 60 acres along the Parkway 30 or 40 years ago, I would not be happy if the town restricted my ability to sell that property to whomever would pay me the most for it.

Still, I would prefer to see more open space and fewer office parks, age restricted communities and Kara Home developments, in Monmouth County. Given all of the development in Monmouth and Ocean over the past 20 years, I am starting to think that this area might start to look like Staten Island, parts of Queens and parts of Long Islan does now (crowded), in another 10 or 20 years.


[TINTON FALLS — It's better than it could have been, but that's about the best anyone is saying about the impact of a 168-home development under construction at the former Laurino Farm site at Hance and Sycamore avenues.

It could have been an office park, dumping 1,000 cars onto local roads twice a day. It could have been a larger neighborhood with more homes and more cars exaggerating already clogged local roads.

But what it will become — an age-restricted, upscale town house development in the center of the borough's most congested section — doesn't please neighbors, either.

"I'm really questioning how I'm going to get out of my driveway," said Noelle Walls, a Sycamore Avenue resident whose property is near the site of the new neighborhood. "They (the administration) should have made more of an effort to acquire it as open space."]
