SERA SEEKS DEVELOPERS FOR
Redevelopment of Sayreville Properties
The Sayreville Economic and Redevelopment Agency (SERA) has announced that it is seeking redevelopers for the site of the Sayreville Landfill #3 & Melrose Pump Station Area (Pump Station Excluded) .
The Sayreville Landfill #3 property is located on the west side of Jernees Mill Road bounded on the north by Pond Creek, on the west by the South River, and on the South by an unnamed tributary to the South River. Consisting of 48.08 total acres, a wetlands delineation reveals that there are 32.5 upland acres available for development atop the capped landfill. The property in question is situated immediately west of the AES Red Oak Power Plant on the opposite side of Jernees Mill Road.
Formerly a municipal landfill, Sayreville Landfill #3 is presently on the National Priorities List “Superfund”, and expectations are that the property will be de-listed by year-end 2010. Proposed re-use of the former landfill may proceed without disturbing the landfill. However, if a proposal for re-use of the property in question requires disturbance of the landfill or relocation of any waste that constitutes the landfill, a landfill disturbance permit will be required subject to NJDEP regulations and permitting standards, and all such costs incurred or risks related thereto regarding such process including continuing monitoring of the site are the obligation of the selected redeveloper.

The Melrose Pump Station Area on Scott Street is the site of an active sanitary pump station. Since only a portion of the site is utilized by the Borough, the remaining area of the lot is available for property lease by a clean-use private entity.
Formerly the site of a sewage treatment plant, the facility has been re-purposed as a sewage pump station only. The property in question is mapped on the attached exhibit showing NJ DEP’s GIS mapping of wetlands, but an accurate interpretation of site characteristics including presence of wetlands can only be determined by an on-site delineation and NJ DEP granted LOI (Letter of Interpretation); the LOI process (and creation of a property survey by a NJ Licensed Land Surveyor) are the obligation of the selected redeveloper.
Both the Borough of Sayreville and SERA seek to attract an end user exhibiting a re-use plan encompassing the highest and best use for the tract, generating the highest financial return to the Borough. However, it must also be noted that financial return alone will not be the only determining factor, and the successful respondent must also propose a land use that is acceptable to the Borough.

It is also declared that all costs associated with the redevelopment process as incurred by the Borough of Sayreville and SERA as regards to the subject properties, are the obligation of the selected redevelopers and will have to be reimbursed at the execution of a redevelopment agreement.
Developers are to submit their concept proposals by Friday, May 14, 2010. Anyone seeking additional information is urged to contact SERA Executive Director Joseph P. Ambrosio, Esq., at (732) 721-6444.
