The board’s chairman, Robert Hudak, took situation with the single entry and mentioned, “I get why you have 1 (spot) to be utilised as the entrance and exit, because it takes up a lot more land to set in one more exit.

He reported it is not likely county officials would approve an obtain issue to the proposed business development at Huntington Drive.
Hudak requested Kennel if the county’s denial of an accessibility stage at Huntington Travel would even implement to an exit only obtain and Kennel stated he considered that to be the situation.
Hudak questioned Kennel if he thought that “having a person entrance that is also operating as an exit for this volume of website traffic, tractor-trailers, box trucks and automobiles … is the most effective layout?”
Kennel said the design and style of the access place is based on the projected visitors quantity for the enhancement. He clarified that tractor-trailers would not be the prominent shipping and delivery automobiles coming to and from the web site.
“This sort of progress for contractors typically has deliveries with box vans. We created the web page so it can accommodate tractor-trailers … but the predominant form of car that is going to be delivering (and picking up) products is generally a box truck, a 30-foot truck,” he explained.
Kennel explained the task style is consistent with Ocean County standards.
