Hop Brook subdivision hearing Dec. 2

HOLMDEL — A public hearing on the Hop Brook Farm Estates application has been carried to the Dec. 2 Planning Board meeting.

The developer, Evaristo Cruz, wants to subdivide the 63.9-acre site on Holmdel Road into 13 building lots.

The lots will be used for new single-family homes, said Sal Alfieri, a Matawan attorney who represents Cruz.

The size of the homes and the price range has not yet been determined, Alfieri said.

The plans call for using the township’s lot averaging development option, which allows developers to build on smaller lots so a large open space can be preserved, he said.

The option requires that 60 percent of the lots have lot areas ranging from 2.5 acres to 3.5 acres.

The tract is located on the east side of Holmdel Road, north of Spring Valley Drive. The property is currently a working farm, Alfieri said.

The developer is proposing to subdivide the tract into 11 lots ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 acres, one lot with 6 acres, and a 24.3-acre lot, which contains the existing dwelling.
