Anyone driving down Green Grove Road in Ocean Township in the last week has noticed that a large amount of trees are being cleared.
The trees are being cleared to make way for a senior housing development near the corner of West Park Avenue and Green Grove Road.
The development is being built by Toll Brothers, LLC, which has several similar projects in Monmouth County, and will feature 75 single family homes a community center and several amenities.
The project, known as Enclave at Ocean, was approved by Ocean Township Planning Board on Jan. 9. The developer's approval included a tree replacement cost of $634,000 which will be added to the township's Shade Tree Fund.
