Monmouth County Assignment Judge Lawrence M. Lawson rendered a decision against Hazlet Township Friday morning in a builder's remedy suit filed by Elegant Properties.
The motion for summary judgment on behalf of Elegant Properties was awarded, according to court documents.
The township was assigned a special master, at its expense, to oversee the proceedings.
This case came about after the township denied Elegant Properties a rezone on its Poole Avenue property to build townhouses, rather than the single-family homes that were approved for the site. Elegant Properties has already expressed intent to purchase other properties in the township for similar development.
