WAREHOUSE PROJECTS PROPOSED FOR HILLSBOROUGH
S.W.A.T. (Stop Warehouses and Trucks) is a group of concerned citizens committed to stopping the construction of the warehouses. These warehouses total up one million square feet of warehouse space. All of these projects are now under consideration by the Hillsborough Planning Board.
The following table summarizes the warehouse projects now before the Planning Board.
The location of the proposed warehouse projects is shown below.
A: 189/203 Homestead Road
Building 1 would be the second largest building in all of Hillsborough.
Building 2 includes a plan to have 80,000 pound tractor trailers drive over the gas transmission lines hundreds of times per day.
B: 279 Homestead Road
Has undergone a major revision. The applicant will submit revised plans that will conform to the township’s zoning ordinance and objections of a neighbor.
C: 303 Amwell Road
Major revisions to the site plan are expected. The applicant is claiming that it will not be a warehouse, but an "industrial building".
F: Weston Road
The applicant anticipates that the facility will generate 76 truck trips per day.
When the site is cleared, they will be cutting down 977 trees with a trunk diameter between 6 and 12", and 448 trees with a trunk diameter between 13 and 24". This is a major loss of forest for the town and the region.
PLANNING BOARD MEETING DATES
Typically, the Planning Board will consider only one project at any meeting. Meeting agendas are posted in advance.

Concerned citizens are urged to attend as many meetings as possible.
While you may be more concerned about a warehouse close to your home, every one of these projects will have ramifications for all Hillsborough residents.
