Manalapan Attorney: Pig Farm Not Permitted, Spano: Yes It Is

1059009231_3f964fc902_bMANALAPAN- Township Attorney Roger McLaughlin said that the Township’s position regarding the proposed pig farm on the 123 acre property on the corner of Route 33 and Millhurst Road is that a pig farm is not a permitted use.

Speaking during the Township Committee’s public meeting on Wednesday night, McLaughlin said that the Committee had discussed the “press release” about the pig farm that owner Joe Spano plans for his property during executive session and that they had determined that the property, in a VC (Village Commercial) zone is not permitted to be a farm.  “Farming is not a permitted use in the VC zone,” McLaughlin said.  “There has been no application for a farm. If there is an application, it will be denied.  Farming is permitted in most zones, but not the VC zone.”

(MoreMonmouthMusings reported on Spano’s plans last week.  Spano did not issue a press release.)
