property. Due to the decline in the age restricted market, the project was modified from a 120 unit age restricted project to a 60 unit attached town home project. Morris County Planning Board issued minor subdivision and site plan approval for this project in October 2011.

he East Hanover Avenue corridor encompasses three municipalities: Hanover Township to the east, Morris Township to the west and Morris Plans to the north. This area hosts a wide variety of land uses. Hundreds of thousands of square feet in large and small scale industrial and office use lie along East Hanover Avenue and within the immediate vicinity of this roadway. Interspersed among these commercial and industrial uses and abutting the corridor are residential neighborhoods, public facilities (Mennen Arena, Morris County Library, Morris County Garage and Frelinghuysen Arboretum) and a variety of retail and service uses from car washes and banks to the 275,000 square foot Cedar Knolls Plaza shopping center. As illustrated by the highlighted properties on the cover, this area is experiencing a significant amount of redevelopment and growth. In order to prepare for the intensification of use along this corridor and increase in traffic, the County is spearheading a corridor study with the assistance of the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The purpose of the corridor study is to project the future growth along the corridor and determine mitigation measures to improve the traffic flow throughout the area. As promoted by the State and the County, continued revitalization along the corridor will create new jobs and support the local and regional economy. A well-planned, multijurisdictional approach for managing local and through traffic along this portion of East Hanover Avenue will benefit the region. Thoughtful and informed planning will allow economic development to occur in a manner that protects the high quality of life expected throughout Morris County. The East Hanover Corridor Study is expected to be completed in 2012. Information regarding the study (agendas, minutes, meeting presentations, etc.) can be found at http://morrisdot.org/accessories/ transportation-ehanoveravecorridorstudy.asp The highlighted properties on the cover represent the properties along the East Hanover Corridor that are in various stages of redevelopment and are described as follows:

„

Green - Airtron Litten aka. Northrup Grumman. This 18.82 acre former industrial site is in the process of being remediated for various types of contamination. The building has been demolished. Once the property is remediated, it should be suitable for redevelopment into a flex use or possibly commercial. Orange - “Dendreon Inc.” This 29.65 acre redeveloped property currently houses a 165,005 sq ft research and development/warehouse facility. The site formerly housed a warehouse for the Mennen Corporation and was also used for a medical laboratory/warehouse. Morris County Planning Board issued site plan approval for this project in 2009. Yellow - “Hanover at Horsehill” This 12.25 acre site consists of two former industrial properties, a heating oil distributor and Thermoplastics Inc. This is a redevelopment project that will transform the two vacant industrial properties into a shopping complex that includes a 3,000 sq. ft. bank, 10,000 sq. ft. multi tenant retail building and an 80,048 sq. ft. Shoprite supermarket along with related site improvements. The applicant submitted a site plan application to the Morris County Planning Board in 2011. Aqua - “Blanchard Securities” For this redevelopment, construction is currently underway for a new 20,297 sq. ft. office building, renovations to an existing 10,000 sq. ft. office building and related site improvements. An existing flex-use building was demolished for this redevelopment project. Morris County Planning Board site plan approval was granted for this project in 2009. Purple - This is the former Berlex industrial site. The property was formerly an assemblage of lots totaling approximately 43 acres. The property has since been subdivided into a 15.5 acre parcel (eastern portion of site) and +/- 27 acre parcel (western portion of site). The Morris County Planning Board has reviewed and approved an

application for the 15.5 acre parcel for the construction of 78 affordable multi family rental units and related site improvements. The units will be contained in six buildings and site access will be from Horsehill Rd. It is anticipated that a big box type retail store and associated satellite buildings will be proposed for the western parcel. This project will add 100,000 sf of new retail space. The Morris County Planning Board expects this application to come in during 2012.

Introduction

M

ost development applications that come before municipal planning boards and boards of adjustment in Morris County are forwarded to the County for review. The New Jersey County Planning Act provides for the review and approval of many types of development applications by the County Planning Board. All subdivision applications must also be submitted to the County for review and approval. In Morris County, minor subdivisions, which do not front on County roads, are deemed exempt from formal review. In addition, all site plans which front on County roads and/or have impervious areas of one acre or more must be submitted to the County for review and approval. Site plans of less than one acre of impervious area are deemed exempt from formal review if they do not front on a County road. The Land Development Review Section of the Morris County Planning Board is responsible for reviewing all development applications, which consist of subdivision plans and site plans submitted to th e Morris County Planning Board for approval. The Land Development Review Committee meets at least once a month, depending on the volume of applications, to review the development applications processed by the staff. At each regularly scheduled monthly County Planning Board meeting, the full Board votes on the “Report of Actions Taken on Development Plans”, which contains the recommendations of the Committee, as well as a complete summary of all development activity processed through the office each month.

Sketch
A sketch represents a conceptual layout of a subdivision or site plan. Submission of sketches, while not required by all municipalities, are helpful to the County review process by providing a preview of formal plans that are likely to be submitted in the future. They also provide an opportunity for possible design changes to be suggested before detailed engineering is undertaken.

Preliminary Plat
Preliminary plat is a set of detailed drawings showing lot lines, road alignments, dimensions, contours, drainage systems, water lines, sanitary sewers and other details as applicable. Approval of the preliminary plat is a prelude to construction.

Final Plat
A final plat follows the preliminary plat approval and becomes a legal record of the subdivision. It is a map of the subdivision which shows the exact dimension and direction of each lot line. The approved final plat is filed at the Office of the County Clerk where it remains a permanent legal record. The lots can be sold after recording. There can be a delay of up to two or more years from the time of municipal and County approval and the actual filing of the plat at the Office of the County Clerk.

Minor Subdivision Plat
A minor subdivision plat is generally defined as having no more than three to five lots and which does not require an extension of municipal facilities such as roads, public water or sewer services.

Site Plan
A site plan is the construction drawing for the development and improvement of one lot or parcel, usually for single uses as office, retail store or higher intensity residential.

A Closer Look
DEVELOPMENT TRENDS
Single Family Housing Subdivisions
After final subdivision approval, final plats are filed at the Office of the County Clerk where the property descriptions become a permanent legal record. The lots can be sold after recording. There can be a delay of up to two or more years from the time of municipal and County approval and the actual filing of the plat at the Office of the County Clerk. Table IV (Section II) provides a five year record of final plats recorded for each municipality. Seventy-one (71) lots were filed at the Office of the County Clerk during 2011, a 65% increase from the number of lots recorded in 2010. Most were small residential subdivisions consisting of 3 to 31 lots that occurred as infill development in established neighborhoods in nine municipalities. Table V (Section II) notes two residential subdivisions of 20 lots or more were reviewed in 2011. Fairway View Estates subdivision in Denville Township (31 lots) and the Forest Hills (20 lots) subdivision in Hanover Township contributed the majority of single family home lots. In the Township of Rockaway, the Morris Commons project proposes 362 units (204 townhouse units and 158 apartment units) on two vacant parcels totaling 45.18 acres within an existing industrial park. The project is located on Commons Way off Green Pond Road. The second project in Rockaway Township, Village at Rockaway, proposes 188 townhome units. This project is located off Green Pond Road on a 51.6 acre parcel. This development was originally approved as an age restricted development and has subsequently had that restriction removed. As in previous years, growth in the age-restricted adult (55 and older) housing sector was minimal. In Pequannock Township, the Pequannock Senior Citizens Housing Corporation proposed a 35 unit expansion to Hearle Village. Hearle Village is a senior citizen apartment complex located on the Boulevard. Renovations are also proposed for the complex’s social/community center. As illustrated in Chart D and also in Table II (Section II), there was a 300% increase in the number of units proposed in site plans in 2011 compared to 2010. Current consumer trends favor rental units more than condo/ownership units in multi-family buildings. The County Planning Board expects continued growth in this market due to the continued fallout from the housing mortgage crisis and scarcity of developable land for large-scale singlefamily subdivisions. Redevelopment of vacant and under utilized nonresidential properties and older housing stock into multifamily housing is a trend that will continue as the economy strengthens.

Attached and Multi-Family Housing Site Plans
Of the six new residential site plans reviewed by the Morris County Planning Board, three were sizeable projects containing 100 or more units. Two projects are located in the Township of Rockaway and one is located in the Borough of Wharton. Avalon Bay Communities, Inc. proposes a 248 unit apartment project on 8.58 acres at East Dewey Avenue in the Borough of Wharton. The project will consist of a large four-story building, which will house all of the units, a 500 space fivestory parking garage and related site improvements. Presently, the site is vacant and contains the remains of the Bull Frog Meadow Iron Mine.

Commercial, Industrial, and Office Site Plans
Site plans submitted to the Morris County Planning Board can range from small building additions with a minimal amount of new floor area to new office buildings, regional retail facilities, and industrial warehouses with several hundred thousand square feet or more of floor area. Industrial site plans, as a rule, provide larger buildings than do commercial or office, especially those that include warehouse

facilities. Table VII (Section II) provides a list of the more significant site plans of non-residential development with new floor area. Only site plans of 50,000 square feet and greater are included in Table VII. The current condition of the economy and relatively high vacancy rate has continued to limit the number of projects greater than 50,000 sq. ft. New non-residential development continued to be stagnant in 2011. The amount of floor area from new non-residential site plans (Table II Section II) in 2011 is 385,578 square feet. Future growth in this sector will depend on financial markets recovering to fund new projects; on the availability of developable and redevelopable property; and, more importantly, a reduction in the supply of vacant office and industrial space. Morris County leads the Northern New Jersey office market with 28,818,455 square feet of office space (Cushman & Wakefield, Marketbeat Office Snapshot, Northern New Jersey, Q4 2011). The chart below shows the slight fluctuation in vacancy rates in Class A and all classes of office space for the past three years. For 2011, the overall vacancy rate for Class A office space fluctuated between 26.8% and approximately 28%. The overall vacancy rate of all classes of office space is 24.6%. Between 2010 and 2011 the vacancy rate for Class A office space increased by approximately 2.5% and the vacancy rate for all classes of office space increased by 2.8%. Morris County ranks sixth in total square feet of industrial space in the Northern & Central New Jersey industrial market with 42,840,231 square feet of industrial space (Cushman & Wakefield, Marketbeat Industrial Snapshot, Northern New Jersey, Q4 2011)). The overall vacancy rate for industrial space was 14.4%. Out of the 10 counties in the market area, Morris County has the second highest vacancy rate of industrial space. The vacancy rate of office space is expected to diminish as older buildings are refurbished and the economy improves. Morris County’s proximity to New York City, highway and rail access, proximity to three major airports, available housing stock and skilled labor force will continue to attract leading businesses to the county. Given the highly educated workforce residing in Morris County and global competition, the likelihood of traditional manufacturing and industrial uses reoccupying all the vacant industrial space is unlikely. The current trend to convert former industrial properties into a non-industrial use (retail,

commercial, multi-family housing etc.) will continue. The loss of industrial properties is not unique to Morris County, which reflects the national loss of the manufacturing sector. The location and desirability of Morris County have enabled the successful redevelopment of these sites into other uses. In Hanover Township, “Hanover at Horsehill” is a redevelopment project that will transform two vacant industrial properties into a shopping complex that includes a 3,000 square foot bank, 10,000 square foot multi-tenant retail building, and an 80,048 square foot Shoprite supermarket. This project is located at the intersection of Horsehill Road and East Hanover Avenue. The previous uses on the site were a heating oil distributor and plastics fabricator. Also along East Hanover Avenue at the northwest corner of the intersection with Ridgedale Avenue, is the former Berlex Industrial property. The Morris County Planning Board anticipates receiving a site plan application for the redevelopment of this property this year (2012). Township officials and potential applicants have indicated that a “big box” retail use and possible accessory retail uses (bank, pharmacy, etc.) totaling approximately 100,000 square feet may be proposed for the +/-12 acre site. Noting the number of proposed and potential redevelopment projects along East Hanover Avenue, the County recognized the need for a coordinated approach to improvements along the heavily travelled roadway from Speedwell Avenue to Whippany Road. With assistance by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the County is preparing a corridor study with input by the three municipalities along the corridor: Borough of Morris Plains, Township of Hanover and the Township of Morris. The purpose of the corridor study is to project the future growth along the corridor and determine mitigation measures to improve the traffic flow throughout the area. Another large project in the Township of Hanover is the redevelopment of the 194-acre former Alcatel/Lucent property. Phase one and two will redevelop 94 acres of the site with 845,000 square feet of office space, parking areas and related site improvements for Bayer Healthcare, which is consolidating its East Coast operations. At this time, it is uncertain whether the remaining 100 acres of the site will be redeveloped into office use or a mix of multi-family housing and commercial uses. (This project was submitted in 2012 and development detail will be provided in the 2012 Annual Report).

As was mentioned in the 2010 annual report, Honeywell is also proposing to redevelop its campus in the Township of Morris. Alternatives for this redevelopment include between 840,000 – 900,000 square feet of office/lab space along with residential and limited retail uses. Currently, the Morris Township Planning Board is considering amendments to its master plan (Land Use element and Circulation Element) to allow a planned mixed-use development in the current OB-40 zone. It is anticipated that a variation of one of the presented alternatives mentioned in the 2010 Annual Report will be submitted to the County for review in late 2012.

Development Data
A combined total of 279 subdivision plats and site plans (including revisions) were submitted to the Morris County Planning Board for review in 2011. Of those applications submitted, the Morris County Planning Board reviewed and issued reports on 169 applications. Another 110 applications received cursory review, but were exempt from formal County review and approval. tial site plans totaling 716 units were resubmitted in 2011. In addition, 43 revised site plans for non-residential development totaling 1,342,582 square feet of floor area were resubmitted in 2011.

REVISED SUBMISSIONS
A significant portion of the development applications submitted to the Morris County Planning Board consists of resubmissions of revised drawings in response to municipal and county reviews. Often, development applications continue into the following year. Table III (Section II) provides information on those development applications continued from prior calendar years. Those development applications are only counted as new subdivision plats and site plans in the year they were first submitted to the Morris County Planning Board for review. The date when construction will actually occur is difficult to predict since economic and market conditions will vary the outcome. By counting both new and revised development applications, trends in development activity can be better determined. The strength of the economy can be directly correlated to the number of submissions. Generally, when the economy is in an upswing, there is an increase in submissions. In addition, as a precursor to an upswing in the economy, there is also an increase in the number of revised submissions. Section II of this report contains Tables I through VII, which present specific development information for Morris County’s 39 municipalities. Within Section I, Charts A through G are based on those tables and show development activity for 2011 compared with the previous nine years. The observations and comments offered in Section I make frequent reference to the tables of Section II as well as the charts contained herein. Table III (Section II) shows 11 revised preliminary subdivision plats (residential and non-residential) totaling 78 building lots were resubmitted from previous calendar years.

Chart A – Total Submissions Reviewed

The total number of submissions reviewed in 2011 is depicted in Chart A above. Table 1 (Section II) provides a breakdown of the subdivision and site plans reviewed by municipality. The recession and mortgage lending crisis is directly responsible for the downward growth trend illustrated in Chart A. As banks and other financial institutions begin to ease restrictions on lending (mortgages, construction loans, etc.), the trend should reverse. The County Planning Board reviewed 19 preliminary plats and 17 final plats (including revisions) in 2011. The number of minor subdivisions (including revisions) totaled 20 for 2011. These minor subdivisions included residential, institutional, commercial and industrial uses, lot line changes and open space preservation parcels. Thirty (30) minor subdivisions not affecting County roads or County drainage facilities were deemed exempt from formal review. By contrast in 2010, 16 minor subdivisions were reviewed and 24 minor subdivisions were exempted from formal review. In 2011, the County Planning Board reviewed 113 site plans (including revisions). These projects either front along County roads or consist of at least one acre of new impervious surface. Site plans for projects not fronting along County roads that
5

do not meet the one acre of new impervious surface criteria are deemed exempt from formal review. The County Planning Board received eighty (80) site plans that were exempt from review.

As seen in Chart B, the total number of new residential subdivision plats submitted in 2011 was nearly the same as in 2010. Residential activity still remained stagnant for 2011. New development activity for the year is presented in Table II (Section II). The County Planning Board received five new preliminary subdivision plats for 27 lots compared to 6 new preliminary plats for 24 lots submitted in 2010. This low number of new preliminary subdivision plats is primarily due to the ongoing recession and the scarcity of developable property.

Site plans for apartments, townhouses, and agerestricted adult housing were submitted to the County Planning Board for review in 2011. Table II (Section II) shows that a total of six new residential site plans for 895 dwelling units were submitted during 2011 compared to six new residential site plans for 298 dwelling units submitted in 2010. Growth is expected to continue as the housing market works its way out of the recession. Based on current consumer trends, developers are submitting applications for multi-family rental units rather than condominium (ownership) units.
