Neighbors try to halt demolition of historic homePosted: Updated:
Residents in Neptune Township are making a last-ditch effort to preserve a 160-year-old home on Corlies Avenue.
A developer recently notified neighbors that the historic Victorian home would be knocked down within days to make way for a car wash.
In response, neighbors have formed The Old Corlies Avenue Preservation Alliance to try and save the home. The group is asking a judge to halt demolition to allow time for historical consideration by the state.
The property, along with the gas station next door, is owned by Felix Bruselovsky. The Township?s Board of Adjustment recently approved his plan to demolish the house so a car wash and oil changing station could be built.
Some members of the Township Committee say they would like to preserve the home. However, they say they cannot reverse the Board of Adjustment?s decision.
