Dear Mr. Hatke:
Trustees of The Hopewell Valley Historical Society (HVHS) at their December 13, 2022 meeting agreed to support the review letter submitted by the Hopewell Township Historic Preservation Commission (HTHPC) on the subject application before the Zoning Board.
Please add this expression of support to the public comments received on the application.
In addition, should the application be approved by the Board, the HVHS requests that a condition be imposed allowing representatives from the HVHS, and from the HTHPC, should they so desire, to photographically document the exterior and interior of the historic structures on the property.
Daniel Pace, Secretary
