The introduced ordinance allows restaurants and other food uses that are greater than 125ft to enter the Township as a permitted use. They would be required to apply and receive any necessary permits for build out. The one caveat to this permitted use status is that the Township’s parking requirements still apply in B-2 and B-3.
While parking requirements are being waived in the B-4, they will remain for the B-2 and B-3 zones. This means that if a restaurant wishes to occupy a vacant space in the B-2 or B-3 zones, but is increasing the parking requirement of that space (i.e. dry cleaner to restaurant), they would still need to seek planning board approval for a parking variance.
