The best practices from the New Jersey State Planning Commission Warehouse Siting Guidance document clearly say that the warehouse at the Peron Howard Street proerty is not situated at a good location for a warehouse.

Best Practices:

  • Designing, clearly marking and enforcing truck routes that keep trucks out of residential neighborhoods and away from other sensitive receptors.
  • Restricting the turn’s trucks can make entering and exiting the facility to route trucks away from sensitive receptors (e.g., neighborhoods, overburdened communities, schools, daycare centers, etc.
  •  Siting large warehouse facilities so that their property lines are between 500 and 1,000 feet from the nearest sensitive receptors, (e.g., residential areas, schools, daycare centers,enters, and active recreational parks).  (This means that a warehouse should be at least 500 feet away from any residential areas and active recreational parks.  The proposed Peron Howard Street warehouse is withing 500 feet of a residential area and borders a Delaware River Park, which is a Green Acres encumbered recreational park.)
  • Areas that should be avoided and wares where warehouses should not be built:
    Areas and sites identified for preservation and/or protection under local, county, regional, or state programs and plans, including any portion of land or site within a designated Agricultural Development Area, should be excluded from warehouse development. Larger properties (e.g., 10 or more acres) comprising a prevalence of Primary Soils should likewise be avoided.
