The Cedar Grove Planning Board approved The Grove catering hall's application for 39 additional parking spaces after three hour meeting Tuesday night.
After two months of deliberations and hearings, the Cedar Grove Planning Board approved an application from The Grove catering hall for 39 new parking spaces Tuesday night. The board’s 7-1 approval, following a three-hour meeting, is contingent on several conditions being met by the facility including the elimination of grass islands for additional parking, granting certain off-site parking conditions and allowing smaller buffer zones in certain areas.

Catering hall representatives outline a plan to add spaces to their lot, in addition to off-site parking.
Representatives from The Grove catering hall asked the Cedar Grove Planning Board Tuesday night to add 39 parking spaces to its venue and to allow off-site parking.

Residents have charged overflow parking from the catering hall causes parking and traffic issues in the streets surrounding the business. In September 2011, Cedar Grove police were forced to close down several lanes of Pompton Avenue (Route 23) when Grove guests attending a wine tasting were crossing the roadway at dusk and creating a dangerous situation.
