An application for a proposed sober living home on Magnolia Avenue in Hillsdale is being held until next year.
The borough planning board previously said they would make a decision on whether or not to begin hearing the application at their meeting Tuesday because residents had requested it be held, but the applicant wanted it to begin.
The applicant apparently later agreed to holding off the start of the application, board members said Tuesday.
Hundreds of Hillsdale residents have signed a petition opposing the plan because of the home's proximity to George G. White Middle School.
The date for the first hearing will be announced at the planning board's reorganization meeting January 9. The applicant will have to send notices to all property owners within 200 feet of the site.
