Hall’s appeal for conversion of home denied
The Board of Adjustment’s ruling on the conversion of a home on 1 S. Centre St. was recently upheld almost a year after Seton Hall officials appealed the Board’s decision to deny the University’s application to convert the home, as reported by South Orange Patch in a May 19 article.
The house, which was purchased by Seton Hall in 2007, would have been converted into offices for the University’s military science program and served as an admissions center for the ROTC program, according to The Patch.
The Patch said the University argued that the offices would have minimal impact on the surrounding area because they would only be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and that access would only be through the back lot which faces Seton Hall campus.
The Setonian has reached out to the University for comment on the board’s decision, but has not received a response.
