Well, we have all heard of Child Day Care Centers. In fact the NJ legislature has deemed it so important that it is considered a “permitted use “ in all non-residential Zones throughout New Jersey. The State has deemed that the Child Day Care Centers represent a significant benefit to the public at large, providing an avenue for working parents to have their children placed in a safe learning and social environment during the day. The Legislature has not yet recognized the value of a new and upcoming trend in Adult Day Care Centers, for that group of Seniors who might live with their Adult children. The same concept as Child Day Care applies: the only difference is it is the kids going to work, and the parents needing a stimulating social environment on a daily basis with their peers in a NON-institutional setting. We are in the midst of presenting an application before the Midland Park Zoning Board of Adjustment , seeking use variance approval to allow such a center. We return in April and have our fingers crossed for a successful outcome. Stay Tuned!
