Industrial tenants in Clark oppose housing proposal
Town officials say seniors units are needed
Any developer who has tried building a factory in a residential neighborhood knows people living nearby don't typically haul out welcome wagons.
A builder in Clark Township is learning the opposite is true, too.
When a developer there proposed building a senior-citizen home amid several L'Oreal manufacturing and research plants near Old Raritan Road, the cosmetic company and its landlord, Villa Contracting, objected, saying people have no place living in an industrial neighborhood.
