Diversion Request

This page will be updated as documents become available pertaining to the diversion request of 1.743 acres +/- at the Madison Recreation Complex, 184 Ridgedale Avenue, Madison, NJ (Block 601, Lot 1.01). 


Madison, NJ – January 14, 2020 - The Borough of Madison’s Public Scoping Hearing, originally scheduled for  January 23, 2020 at 6:00 P.M. at Hartley Dodge Memorial, 50 Kings Road, on the proposed diversion of approximately 1.743 acres +/-  at the Madison Recreation Complex, 184 Ridgedale Avenue (Block 601, Lot 1.01) in regards to Madison’s Affordable Housing litigation and settlement efforts has been postponed.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Green Acres has contacted the borough informing us that they are asserting primary jurisdiction regarding our diversion request, unilaterally reversing their prior ruling issued in April 2019 that they waived jurisdiction.

The Borough looks forward to working together with NJDEP/Green Acres and Morris County Department of Planning & Preservation to re-schedule the scoping hearing at a later date, as we work towards our moral and legal obligation to provide affordable housing in Madison.

When a date has been determined for the postponed scoping hearing, notices will be sent in accordance to the rules and regulations of NJDEP/Green Acres and Morris County.

The below information is in regards to the originally scheduled January 23, 2020 Public Scoping Hearing, which has since been postponed.
