Cranford residents living on Nomahegan Court have taken issue with what some are calling ‘The Great Wall of Westfield,’ as a builder’s remedy lawsuit results in a housing unit being built on the border of town.
At issue was the fact that the 24-units only included four affordable housing units and none involved senior housing.
Concerns brought up by the Cranford residents included water run-off, traffic and changing the look of the neighborhood.
“We wanted to be good neighbors,” he said, pointing out that under the settlement agreement, the developer was limted to 24 units, as opposed to the 60 they originally requested.
“We were sued. We didn’t want to change the zoning,” another councilman interjected.
