The Morris Township committee is scheduled to hear a presentation about the redevelopment of the Colgate / Mennen property at its Dec. 21, 2016, meeting.
How will this site affect traffic in the busy Hanover Avenue corridor, home to a new ShopRite and future home to another shopping center at the Hanover / Ridgedale Avenue intersection?
This and other questions should be addressed in coming months.
In 2013, Colgate-Palmolive announced plans to lay off 350 workers and sell its $18.5 million East Hanover Avenue plant, on a 49-acre site where it has manufactured liquid hand soap, body wash, antiperspirant and deodorant. Another 200 employees were scheduled for transfer to a Piscataway plant.
The site, presently zoned for industrial use, has a corporate history stretching back at least 63 years, according to Colgate / Palmolive.
Wednesday’s meeting starts at 7 pm at the municipal building, 50 Woodland Ave.
