PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Development of Route 12 is a project for the Together North Jersey Local Demonstration Project Program to advance Kingwood Township’s ongoing efforts to implement a transfer of development rights program for the Route 12 corridor.

OBJECTIVES

  • Facilitate a transfer of development rights program by completing a portion of the next steps in the Township’s implementation of the Route 12 Scenic Corridor Overlay (SCO) and Eastern Gateway Village Overlay (EGVO) ordinances; and
  • Enhance transit opportunities along Route 12 based on additional ridership demand resulting from a new population center along Route 12.
