Council Meets Tuesday: Parking Fees, PILOT Agreement, Rail-Trail Vote

The Montclair council will meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the municipal building.


The Montclair Township Council will convene in the municipal building’s council chambers, located at 205 Claremont Ave. The council will review the agenda at 7 p.m. and then begin the regularly scheduled meeting at 7:30 p.m., the latter of which is televised. 

On Tuesday's agenda is an ordinance for Montclair parking fees. The township dissolved the Montclair Parking Authority in December and officially took over the control of parking on Jan. 1.  

There is also a resolution on the agenda creating a cash fund for the newly formed Montclair Parking Utility.  

The council will also vote on an ordinance approving a financial agreement between Montclair Kensington Urban Renewal LLC and the Township of Montclair for a Church Street lot portion of Hahne's Redevelopment Area.

At the council’s May 23, 2012 meeting, the council approved a resolution designating Montclair Kensington Urban Renewal LLC as redeveloper for the parking lot site. The company and the township agreed to develop a plan to build an 88-unit assisted living facility on the site.

In addition, the council will vote on a resolution to work cooperatively for the planning and development of a rail-trail park within Belleville, Bloomfield, Newark and Glen Ridge. 

Back in August 2010, the council discussed plans to convert the rarely used railway 11-mile track from Upper Montclair to Montclair State University into a trail for pedestrians and cyclists. At a meeting in April 2010, the Bloomfield Township Council voted to enter into talks with Montclair, Glen Ridge, Belleville, and Newark to draft a plan to transform the old Boonton Line, which runs through the towns and into Hudson County.
