At Wednesday's Township Committee meeting, the committee announced that it would proceed with removing the age restriction at the Pine River Village, marking the first sign of progress almost a year after the senior community's residents pleaded for the change in order to attract younger home buyers during the recession. The neighborhood, slated to hold 175 homes, is only about one-sixth complete after more than three years.The committee said it received a letter from its attorney stating that changing the deed and zoning to allow all ages was legal. Committee members still want to meet with the developer, Ralph Zucker, to examine his plans before making it final. app.
