Marylawn Update

Seton Hall University presented two experts to testify at the September 2nd Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting

These individuals spoke about

  • Traffic Patterns on Scotland Road, Montrose Avenue and Vose Avenue. The study was done after Marylawn School had closed. It predicted that morning peak hour traffic would increase 6-7% and evening peak hour traffic would increase 7-8%.
  • Shuttle Buses to and from Seton Hall main campus to the Marylawn minicampus. There would be a minimum of 2 buses per hour with the possibility of 4 buses during peak hours. They would enter the Marylawn site via Scotland Road.

Seton Hall presented a letter to the ZBA informing them that they would be presenting a letter to the Historic Preservation Commission regarding the future the Historic Graves Mansion .

Seton Hall has informed the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) that they will be submitting a new application. The understanding is that Seton Hall will seek permission to demolish the Graves Mansion. The HPC is likely to receive this request before the end of September.

Concerns include:

  • Traffic issues on Scotland, Montrose and Vose will be substantial.
  • Students will seek alternate parking on streets in the neighborhood.
  • The property will remain off the tax rolls
