What's wrong with this picture?

There's an old saying that if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Our response to the Wayne Master Plan Revision.

 

Wayne can attract new businesses with the right leadership

The administration claims that Wayne can’t attract businesses without the mixed use retail, low income and high density that have been proposed.  

Wayne is zoned only 3% for commercial. It is foolhardy for Wayne to turn any commercial property into low income and high density housing and once changed it will never revert to commercial.

We are for all intents and purposes in a recession. It should come as a surprise to no one that some businesses have been having problems and certainly the developers that have the properties that would be effected would be grateful to have the administration bail them out and turn coal into gold, so to speak. Some time ago the present administration eliminated the independent position of director of the Wayne Industrial and Economic Development Commission and folded it into the responsibilities of the town planner. The duties include “Preparing a commercial use survey and inventory for the Township, monitoring commercial uses and commercial tax ratables and assisting businesses and attracting businesses, which will make a major contribution to the economy of the Township” and to “Confer with the Township Administration, Township Council, the Planning Board and other municipal agencies, as necessary, concerning land use issues, ordinances and resolutions that may have an impact upon commercial and retail uses in the Township.” (Wayne Township web site) The town council was not “conferred” with during the six months or so that this plan was under development, evidently in violation of the directive to do so when the issue “may have an impact upon commercial and retail uses in the Township.” That said, if the present staff cannot attract businesses to Wayne perhaps it is time to give someone else a chance.
