Update on the Redevelopment Financial Agreement - September 2020

At the September 2, 2020 Township Committee meeting, the approval of an amendment to the existing Financial Agreement between the Township and Lennar will ensure that the Township receives the maximum amount of revenues from the Lennar redevelopment project for an additional 15 years.  Per the existing Financial Agreement, the Township gets to charge a PILOT on each residential unit for the earlier of 30 years from when the unit was constructed or 2053.  Based on Lennar’s current build schedule of 50 residential units/year, over half the units would not pay a PILOT for the full 30 years by the time we get to 2053, to the financial detriment of the Township.  This financial detriment may only be exacerbated by Project delays resulting from the pandemic. 

As a result of actions at the last meeting, the Township will now receive a PILOT for each residential unit for the earlier of 30 years or 2070.  This will ensure that substantially all of the residential units pay a PILOT for the full 30 year term, to the significant financial benefit of the Township.
