Sethi Development Pulls Zoning Board Application to Develop
Miry Run Banquet Hall
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – (Sept. 2, 2017) - Titusville-based Sethi Development Corporation has pulled its application (RZB16-12-01) before the Robbinsville Township Zoning Board and will no longer pursue construction of a 900-person banquet hall on the former Miry Run golf course property.
Miry Run is privately owned by Spring Garden Country Club, Inc. and comprises 188 acres.
Robbinsville Township will continue to negotiate with the owner in the hopes of acquiring the property, with the tool of condemnation used only as a last resort in its continued efforts to dedicate the entire parcel to open space. The Sethi plan would have subdivided approximately 24 acres for the proposed banquet hall.
“Whether you agreed with the proposed application or not, this was a fair and open process,” Mayor Dave Fried said. “I want to thank the zoning board, along with our Planning and Zoning and various other departments for their, time, hard work and diligence. At the end of the day the true winner here is open space and the environment.”
Statement from applicant Amar Sethi:
"Sethi Development Corporation prides itself on its professionalism, integrity, and being a member of the Mercer County Community. SDC has no role, nor is it engaging in any ulterior agenda. SDC will continue to pursue its business opportunities with integrity and innovation while being mindful of the community of Robbinsville, and with respect to any legal process in order to pursue those endeavors. Mercer County has been home for the members of SDC for over 30 years. As fellow residents of the county, SDC takes to heart the impact of the growth and development on the residents, and works towards having a positive impact on the greater community."
