THE BERNARDSVILLE NEWS, THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1W1 Hearings (r»m Page 1) amended site plan approval in March The second application to come before the board, the Villas at Basking Ridge complex, received preliminary approval on Tuesday, provided that four-bedroom units be eliminated from the project and that frontage along South Maple Avenue be adequately screened. Proposed by the National Kinney Corporation for the Bardy Farms tract, plans for the Villas were submitted to the board early last year. Engineers for National Kinney also revised the design and location of the project's sewage treatment facility, as suggested by some residents and township officials. The third townhouse application, the Liberty-Greens at Bernards complex, is planned for a tract off Somerville Road, on part of the Liberty Corner Training Farm The Lord Stirling complex, planned for a 77-acre tract on the Somerset Hills Airport along Lord Stirling Road-and South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, would include 24 clustered, single- family homes on 50 acres of the site Rick Christension, a planner representing tfie Lanid Corporation of Parsippany, developers of the proposed Lord Stirling complex, told the board Tuesday the townhouse complex w ill include a swimming pool and two tennis courts, located at the northern portion . of thesite along Lord Stirling Koad. Christension said the'units are expected to sell-for about $100.0011 each when completed! The fate of the Country Place townhouse project, planned for a 29- acre tract on part of the Somerset Hills Cemetery land off Mt. Airy Road, bordering Bernardsville, is still uncertain. Will Not Alter (ode David Keller, an engineer for the project, told planners the complex will probably not be developed if it must be sccaled down to include only 64 units AROUND THE TOWN For the best buy in ice cubes stop at JEROLAMAN'S and pick up a ten pound bag for $1.35.

JEROLAMAN If the preceding townhouse applications are accepted as presented, board members have said they will not revise the BRC ordinance to allow Country Place to include the 150 units. The five proposals are not the only housing developments to come before planners during the past year. The board also heard conceptual plans on Tuesday by developer William Kastner to build a 15-lot cluster development on the east side of Mt Airy Road, between Berkeley Circle and Oak Ridge Road Kastner, in conjunction with Township Planner Marshall Frost, has increased the proposal from 11 to 15 units to be built on one-acre lots He told the board he intends to acquire an additional three lots before bringing final mte plans to the board within the next several months. Trains Cut (Continued from Page 1) million, according to Baehr. Current federal subsidies would provide $53 million to N.J. Transit, but the Reagan budget would cut the figure to $41 million. The N.J. Transit board also drafted a resolution calling on the state Legislature to provide funds to keep commuter rail and bus-service in operation. State Transportation Commissioner Louis (Jambaccini reiterated his concern Tuesday that service to the 75,000 _nders of the system coukLend soon. ^ "If implemented, (the Reagan proposals) raise the very real question of whether the state of New Jersey can afford to continue rail commuter operations," he said recently. To Eliminate Agent Two weeks ago, N.J. Transit announced plans to eliminate ticket agents from all stations in the Somerset t Hills except Lyons. Stations in Ber" nardsville, Far Hills and Peapack- (iladstone will no longer have agents July 1. The Lyons station, in Bernards Township, is municipally owned and heavy flow of commuters*there~would make elimination of the agent impractical. ~— Last week, leaders of a dozen railroad unions announced they would Hive up $200 million in wage increases over the next three years from Conrail as a concession to keep commuter and freight lines alive Conrail runs the lines for N.J. Transit. Baehr said the concessions eliminated only %H million of the overall shortfall for commuter rail operations. Approximately 70,000 Conrail workers will receive preferred stock in thje railroad to replace the wage Increases. Hep James Florio (IJ-lst district), chairman of the House commerce, transportation and tourism subcommittee, which has jurisdiction over Conrail, said the wage agreement would disprove the Reagan Adminstra- tion's contention that railroad lines must be sold to private concerns because labor unions would never BgBM to enough concessions to allow the lines to be profitable.
