Synagro biosolids plant review in Plainfield Township tabled until January 2017

The Synagro special exception application to site a 400-ton per day crap bakery in Plainfield Township, which has morphed into a non-permitted use application requiring two major variances, has been tabled until the planning commission's Tuesday January 17, 2017 meeting.

Excerpt of Zoning Officer's "Dear John" review letter dated December 15, 2016

While Synagro's application has been removed from the planning commission agenda for December 19, Sludge Free UMBT (Upper Mount Bethel Township) will be at the Plainfield Township Fire Hall on this evening to hold an information session and present a video on sludge.

It isn't clear how the planning commission will be able to review an application for a permit in a zoning district where something is not allowed to be.   Attempting to obtain the variances seems like the logical place to start.  More will become known in the next few weeks.

Note: January 16 is the third Monday, but it is a holiday.  The planning commission's regular meeting will be Tuesday, Jan 17.
