of the car wash next door, said he was con­cerned about the num­ber of park­ing spaces and the prox­im­ity of the prop­erty’s drive­way to where ve­hi­cles en­ter and exit the car wash.

“There can be 100 cars an hour,” he said, adding left-hand turns into the fa­cil­ity so close to his prop­erty “would cause prob­lems.”

“I would like some­thing other than the closed gas sta­tion,” Gold­stein said, but “in my opin­ion this is the wrong type of build­ing.”

Ge­or­gione asked the board to con­sider “ap­proval with con­di­tions,” in­clud­ing the recre­ational mar­i­juana re­stric­tion, “a meet­ing of the minds be­tween ours and your town­ship en­gi­neer re­gard­ing flood mit­i­ga­tion,” mov­ing the drive­way, ex­tend­ing and mark­ing the cross­walk, meet­ing light­ing re­quire­ments and pro­vid­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion re­gard­ing prop­erty own­er­ship.

Foun­tain said “there is not enough in­for­ma­tion with cer­tainty to con­firm or deny an im­pact on the flood­plain, where the new build­ing is lo­cated.” El­e­vat­ing it on piers “would re­duce the amount of in­tru­sion on the flood­plain,” but “was not em­braced,” he said.

Piers are “a se­cu­rity is­sue,” they would open up the build­ing from be­low, Kurowski said. It’s also “a flood safety is­sue — what if some­one were trapped in flood­wa­ters be­low the build­ing,” and it would be “sig­nif­i­cantly more costly than the al­ter­na­tives we’ve pro­posed.”

Foun­tain said he was will­ing to look at ad­di­tional hy­drol­y­sis in­for­ma­tion Kurowski said he would pro­vide “to get me to agree to get where you want to be.”
