Purda Farm in North Brunswick may be re-zoned to high-density housing

Town council members discussed the possibility of re-zoning Purda Farm to high-density housing in North Brunswick Monday night.

The 70-acre farm is located off of Old Georges Road. Some residents feel the rural property made up of corn fields and single property homes should be preserved to keep their drinking water safe.

If the measure up for vote passes, the area would be changed from residential housing to high-density housing. The ordinance calls for a maximum of 340 housing units, including a senior housing complex as well as additional townhouses and condos.
