Warehouse project comes under fire by residents

UPDATE: The Oct. special meeting for the proposal is postponed because someone affiliated with the planning board may have been exposed to COVID-19, according to the board secretary. No new date has been set.

EDISON – Neighborhood residents are mounting a fight over plans to build a what they call a “mega-warehouse” at the intersection of Glendale and Silver Lake avenues.

41 Glendale LLC is asking approval for an 161,580-square-foot warehouse, almost the size of three football fields, on a 10.05-acre lot at the intersection near the Raritan River.

A special planning board meeting on the proposal is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at the Performing Arts Center at the College Center at Middlesex County College, 2600 Woodbridge Ave.  

Several residents opposed to the project have been canvasing the neighborhood and handing out flyers. “No warehouse” signs dot lawns. A Facebook page, “Silverlake Edison,”  has been created.
