The Township has acted to approve a Redevelopment Area designation for a portion of Belford, as shown on the following map. No plans have yet been developed or approved. This phase of the process only means that the area meets the State’s criteria, meaning it qualifies as a Redevelopment Area.
It is important to note that the Belford Redevelopment Area has been designated as a Non-Condemnation Redevelopment area. This means that there will be no use of eminent domain. It is also important to know that a Redevelopment Area determination is separate from a Redevelopment Plan.
At the present time, only a redevelopment determination has been made, and there is NO Redevelopment Plan adopted. Any redevelopment plans that are developed will have to be in full compliance with all state and federal environmental regulations.
