This is the first of many ordinances attempted to rezone the Peron Howard Street property in downtown Phillipsburg next to the Delaware River from Riverside Residential to Industrial.

The site plan at the foundation of this particular ordinace was for a 510,000 square foot warehouse.  The site plan also was going to take a large chunk of Delaware River Park, an open space area that was purchased with New Jersey State tax dollars, and designated as Green Acrres Open Space.  The Town of Phillipsburg got shut down by the state when they tried to work a deal to sell or give some of Delaware River Park to Peron Corporation.
