is seeking approval to expand its parking lot and restaurant by knocking down two homes in New Milford, near the Teaneck border.
Residents in New Milford and Teaneck have attended a borough zoning board meeting to voice concerns over the expansion plan. The restaurant is located near Riverview Avenue in Teaneck, an area which often floods in heavy rains.
The restaurant is seeking to expand by about 600 square feet and build a larger parking lot, according to Teaneck Township Attorney Stanley Turitz.
"There's overwhelming non-support for this project from the residents,' Teaneck Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin said at Tuesday's council meeting.
Although the work will be done in New Milford, Teaneck officials will review the plans to explore formally opposing the work.
The hearing has been scheduled for the June 12 meeting of the New Milford Zoning Board.
