Engineering Firm Gets OK For Office Building

A Schoolhouse Road engineering firm received Planning Board approval April 7 to build an office building on its property.

The Board approved a 6,095-square-ffot building that will be situated in front of the existing 6,000-square-foot building.

Philip Prisco, the company owner, told the Board that the company’s office is operating out of a Summit location, and he wanted to condense operations.

He said the building will be sited to block the view of the current metal building, which will be used for storage.

Some Board members said they were concerned about items the company had stored to the rear of the existing building. Prisco said those items were in the process of being condensed, and the remainder would be moved into the storage building.

Prisco said that at most, there would be 10 to 12 employees in the office, with the usual being five people.

“It will be somewhat of a low-level, low-impact office operation,” he said.

The Board approved the application with several conditions, including installation of a bike rack and an electric vehicle charging station, a 6-foot-high closed fence, and a donation to the township’s sidewalk fund.
