A new developer has proposed plans to develop Old Orchard Country Club in Eatontown, Mayor Gerald Tarantolo announced during Wednesday's Eatontown Council meeting.
"We've had two meeting with a major developer interested in Old Orchard Country Club," Tarantolo said.
Plans to develop the Old Orchard Country Club, at 54 Monmouth Road, have been under consideration for several years. The last developer's plan to build on the property was met with backlash from residents who live near the country club and "crashed," according to Tarantolo.
The country club has remained a P- 1/R-32 zone, which allows for the property to be developed for residential or public land use.
The last plan involved the building of a multi-use residential and commercial facility, but that plan was not approved.
A new plan will be unveiled during an informal presentation to the Eatontown Planning Board on Jan. 21.
"We will make sure to get a Code Red Alert out to any residents who live in the area about the meeting," Tarantolo said.
Tarantolo said there is a residential and commercial component to the developer's plan for the country club property. The plan involves 450,000 square feet of commercial facility and 175 units of townhouse development. Tarantolo did not give specifics on what type of commercial building was proposed.
The last plan that was rejected by the borough involved a 75-acre multi-use facility with retail stores, restaurants, a six-story hotel and over 300 residential housing units.
