This proposed 16,350 square foot house of worship would require
65% more land than owned to meet the legal requirements.
The structure would be too big, too high, too wide, too close to neighbors,
and without a major variance, would not be legal.

This is not a neighborhood story but a fairness story. If the Millburn Township approved Zoning Ordinance calls for 3 acres to build a large house of worship or any other structure this size, why should a zoning exception be made.

Regarding this particular case, it is interesting to note the following. A house of worship is considered an inherently beneficial use according to New Jersey state land use law. Other
structures considered to be inherently beneficial uses are: hospitals, nursing homes, daycare centers, community shelters, public interest housing.

The point here being, if we allow a significant Zoning Ordinance variance from the property at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Old Short Hills Road, what is to stop other individuals or organizations from asking for the same treatment in other parts of town?
