JUST IN: Jackson Township To Purchase Leesville Farm Property

Jackson Township Mayor Michael Reina has announced that the township has negotiated a deal to acquire a 32-acre farm on Leesville Road, where a private developer was proposing to build four private schools.

“We have been successful in negotiating with the owners of this Leesville Road property with the intent of having the township acquire this parcel of land,” Mayor Reina said in a statement.

“As details are being finalized with the landowners, no additional information is available at this time. My priority is to protect existing neighborhoods within Jackson Township and to protect and honor the rights of all Jackson residents. We have found a way to achieve both outcomes with this agreement once it is finalized and approved.”

The parcel of land in question, located at 443 Leesville Road, is owned by Bellevue Estates, LLC.

The owner’s application to construct four private schools at this location is currently before the Jackson Planning Board.

  1. Berish – this is not a coincidence. Jackson residents – even yidden – do not want Jackson to turn into Prospect street. Buying land before a developer can turn our roads into nightmares is well within the scope of the township’s authority.
    I have children in Lakewood schools, and would love to be able to send them to schools in Jackson instead. But until we see that developers are going to act responsibly, and that adding cars will come along with widening of existing roads and additional routes, I would rather contribute to Lakewood’s traffic than have the traffic come to me.
