Eariler this week, Clark Planning Board members unanimously approved the rezoning of the 28-acre lot on Central Avenue from Raritan Road to the Parkway.The new town center will be a park-like commercial center with tree lined streets, a fountain, a plaza, a clock tower, and retail and office space. This land used to be the U.S. Gypsum paper plant and will become the new town center for Clark. The map to the right shows the area circled in red.
While still in the planning stage, Clark residents have voiced some concerns about the traffic and types of stores that would occupy the center. Residents have requested places for their children, especially Clark's teenagers. The zoning ordinance, the Planning Board explained, could limit the types of stores and offices.
