Township of Readington, Hunterdon County, New Jersey

Solberg Airport Information

Dear Resident:

As you may recall, in August of last year, the Township held two public meetings regarding the future of Solberg Airport. During these meetings, your input and discussion were very helpful and appreciated.

At the Monday, August 22, 2005 meeting, the Township and Solberg Aviation Company agreed to enter into good faith negotiations to develop a preservation plan that meets the long stated goals of the Township with regard to open space and natural resource preservation, maintains preservation of the Solberg Airport and its unique heritage, and addresses the concerns of the public that any such plan should preserve Readington’s very special quality of life.

In the interim period of approximately three and a half months since that meeting, seven negotiation sessions have been conducted between the Township and the owners of the Solberg Aviation Company.

Given the number of inquires from the public as to the status of these negotiations, a Public Information Meeting has now been scheduled for Tuesday, January 17, 2006, at 6:30 p.m. at Holland Brook School, Readington Road. The purpose of this meeting is to keep the public up to date on the negotiations and to inform you of the various proposals discussed.

This will be an informational meeting only, with no action taken by the Township Committee. There will be an opportunity for public comments and questions. We look forward to your participation.

Very truly yours,

Gerard J. Shamey
Mayor, Readington Township
