The borough’s planning commission has given its approval to a proposed senior citizen apartment building despite opposition from residents in the Route 909 area.
The commission voted 4-3 last week to recommend site plan approval for the Plum Retirement Residence — a 60,000-square-foot, 58-unit, four-story building proposed near the intersection of Repp Road and Coxcomb Hill Road, also known as Route 909
