Heartening to See Planning Board Fulfilling Its Mission As True Steward for the Community
To the Editor:
It was a heartening moment on Wednesday night when a majority of the Princeton Planning Board refused to be coerced into supporting an ill-conceived subdivision of a narrow lot fronting onto Jefferson Road. Despite badgering from the applicant’s attorney, Planning Board members led by Jenny Crumiller, Liz Lempert, and Timothy Quinn courageously argued that “as of right” was never meant to sanction the drawing of zig-zag lot lines that violate very clearly stated guidelines. Instead of setting a dangerous precedent for the carving up of neighborhoods to maximize developers’ profits, the Planning Board fulfilled its mission of being a true steward for the community it serves.
