The governing body of Princeton issued a statement on Tuesday night regarding the marketing materials for Jasna Polana, the 222-acre golf course and private club located at the corner of Province Line Road and Route 206 in Princeton. A confidential offering memorandum created by commercial realtor Cushman & Wakefield lists the possibility of designating the property as an Area in Need of Redevelopment.
In recent years the Princeton Council has granted Area in Need of Redevelopment designations to three properties.
Officials say there are no current plans to consider designating Jasna Polana as an Area in Need of Redevelopment.
The governing body’s statement:
We are aware that the Jasna Polana golf course property is currently being marketed for sale, and that initial advertisements for a potential sale suggest the possibility of a “comprehensive redevelopment of the site consistent with Princeton’s Master Plan Update.”
On behalf of the Governing Body, we wish to make explicitly clear that there are no current plans to investigate or consider designating the Jasna Polana golf course property as an area in need of redevelopment. Although the Master Plan update process is still ongoing, there have been no indications thus far that this property will be recommended as such.
Any implication in the marketing materials for Jasna Polana that a more dense project, or expansion of uses beyond what is allowed under the current zoning will be permitted, is unwarranted. No amendments to the current zoning ordinance for this site are contemplated by Princeton Council at this time.
