UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. -- The Borough of Upper Saddle River provided an update Thursday about the Apple Ridge Golf Course, noting the housing plan approval continues, regardless of owner.

The course closed in December of last year, and Apple Ridge USR got subdivision approval that month for 44 single-family homes.

"This approval remains binding and runs with the land," the borough said. "This means that the development of the golf course will be limited to 44 single-family homes, regardless of whether Apple Ridge USR is the builder/developer or a future purchaser."

The original proposal was for 353 townhouses, but it was negotiated down to the 44 single-family homes. Part of the bargain included an "affordable housing component of 70 units attributable to the property," the borough said, that "will be satisfied by senior and adult special needs housing on the seven-acre tract owned by the borough to the rear of the Porcelanosa building on Route 17."
