Princeton Planning Board: Density Increase at Hospital Site Inconsistent with Master Plan

The Regional Planning Board of Princeton is advising the Princeton Borough Council that developer AvalonBay’s request to increase the density at the downtown hospital site as inconsistent with the master plan. Borough Council will consider the zoning ordinance at its public meeting this week. In a 9-1 vote Thursday night, the board said allowing an additional 44 units above the 280 approved under the existing zoning would be inconsistent with the master plan and objectionable. Board member and former Borough mayor Mildred Trotman cast the lone vote in support of the density increase because of the number of affordable units the project would provide.
