Township calls halt to fence construction

Daniel Hernandez and his wife Jenny were denied permission to build a fence that would surround
their property late last week. The reason for the construction was to protect the safety of their children
from the busy intersection at Broadway and Adams. The couple owned and operated a home day care
center, and felt the chain fence would be the most effective means to keep children from running into
the street. Originally, their request was granted, however township officials stepped in claiming that
the fence was unsightly and obstructed the view of motorists. Under state law because of the couple’s
location to the intersection, there are certain zoning restrictions that township officials exploited in
order to squash the project. Although city officials shut down the project, a spoke person commended
their efforts for safety and cited alternative options that could be enacted behind the property.
