Four Pond II Redevelopment (Updated December 2014) Preliminary and final major site plans for 228 townhomes along with depictions of the recreation facilities to service the community.
Four Ponds (Avaya) Redevelopment Proposal. The Middletown Planning Board will begin hearing the application for the Four PondsRedevelopment, that is proposed for the current Avaya office building site on Middletown-Lincroft Road, on May 4th. The plan proposes to build 342 units (270 townhouses and 72 apartments with 68 of the apartments being COAH affordable housing rental apartments.) This represents an approximate 16% increase in the number of households in Lincroft Village.

Pedestrian Safety: The LVGA has made numerous proposals to address pedestrian safety in the center of Lincroft. Please go to Pedestrian Safety and Pedestrian Recommendations to view our concerns and recommendations, which are supported by Asw. Handlin. (View Asw. Handlin's letter to the Middletown Township Committee here.) View the LVGA-proposed center island here. These concerns have been presented to County Engineer Joseph Ettore during CR520 Task Force meetings. The Task Force is currently preparing recommendations.
Brookdale Community College. The collaboration between the LVGA and Brookdale Community College has been very productive.
During the last forty years, Brookdale Community College has experienced tremendous growth. With enrollment continuing to rise, the college is faced with many challenges. In recent years, while successfully managing their institutional growth, Brookdale has demonstrated their commitment to partnering with the LVGA to address the community’s challenges as well.
The collaboration between the LVGA and Brookdale Community College has been very productive. As our community faces future challenges and opportunities, we are looking forward to ongoing support from the college.
Majestic Avenue Controversy: In the summer of 2008 a flyer was circulated that incorrectly states that the LVGA requested that Majestic Ave. and Majestic Ave. South be connected at the cul-de-sac. The LVGA did not make that proposal, nor has it supported that proposal. Please read our letter regarding this.
Trash Truck Routes and Marpal Contract with Middletown Township: The LVGA would like to thank the Middletown Township Committee for its efforts to improve the quality of life of residents living along CR50 (Swimming River Road and Middletown-Lincroft Road). We are happy to report that the Committee acted on the LVGA's request to 1) require designated trash truck routes throughout Middletown that would minimize use of CR50 (Middletown-Lincroft Road/Swimming River Road) and require trash trucks to use state highways to enter and exit the Township and 2) prohibit trash trucks from entering the Township before 6 AM. Our request was made in a letter dated Nov. 20, 2006. The Middletown Township Committee also reviewed several bids for refuse and recycling contracts and decided to not renew its contract with Marpal for the year 2008. (Additional information regarding the Marpal expansion request can be found here.)
Brookdale Roundabout Opens: The long-awaited Brookdale roundabout officially opened on August 30, 2007 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Although many people were skeptical about the roundabout at first, the roundabout is now well accepted and is considered a definite improvement over the old light-controlled intersection. Read a New York Times article here, an Asbury Park Press article here and an Independent article here. The history of the roundabout is found here.
Crosswalks: Residential neighborhoods exist on both sides of Swimming River Road yet there are no designated crosswalks along the approximately one mile long road. The LVGA has asked the county to establish three crosswalks along the road. The request was subsequently passed on to Middletown Township which has rejected the proposal. Please read more
