Matheny’s court appeal

Matheny has filed an appeal in New Jersey Superior Court to overturn the Peapack-Gladstone Land Use Board’s decision that Matheny is not a “permitted use” in its current location. The Land Use Board made this decision even though Matheny has existed in its current location since the 1950s and has received many land use approvals for various projects over the years.

The appeal also seeks to overturn the Board’s decision to deny Matheny’s expansion plans. The long period of time that elapsed during the Land Use proceedings has exacerbated what was already a criticial situation — the number of children with medically complex developmental disabilities who need a residential facility.

Matheny is proud to be a member of the Peapack-Gladstone community and appreciates the support of the majority of its residents.
