This study examined the industrial land uses south of the St.Barnabas commercial corridor between Beech and Temple Hill Roads for impacts on existing and potential new commercial and residential uses surrounding the area, as well as development and redevelopment within the industrial area itself. This study prepared an action plan to mitigate negative impacts and promote more attractive, compatible land uses. The action plan included, but was not limited to: systematic code inspection and enforcement to promote better property maintenance; rezoning recommendations; proposals to change industrial use standards to improve development and environmental quality in the industrial zone; and recommendations for infrastructure improvements.
