At this time greedy businessmen are attempting to convince our Toms River Zoning Board to rezone a piece of property in a residential neighborhood for commercial use.
Toms River has many areas of vacant land along Route 37 that could be used for a commercial building of this magnitude. Of course that comes at a higher cost to these selfish people. They would rather put a 24-hour acute care/rehabilitation facility facing the backyard of nine residential homes in the Silver Ridge part of town.
These homes are filled with families, families that have an expectation of the benefits of being surrounding by other families. Should families that buy in Toms River in a residential neighborhood be subjected to having a 124 bed facility with over 100 hundred employees, daily deliveries, daily ambulance drop offs, four shift changes, and garbage removal 25 feet from our rear property line? How is that what we should expect as residents living in a residential neighborhood.
Please come to the Toms River Zoning Board Meeting downtown on March 20, at 7:00 to express your outrage that our town would consider doing this to families in our community. It might be happening to the residents of Smith Road, Seaton Rd, and Silver Ridge families now, but it could be YOUR neighborhood next.
