The resolution specifically states Paradise Drive, it does not grant exclusive use of the unnamed public road from Rt. 206 to Paradise Drive. Based on that, it would appear that the gate should not be installed at Route 206, since that is not Paradise Drive according to the Hammonton tax map.2. The road at 206 where the gate is installed is not the official West Mill Road nor is it Paradise Drive. It is unnamed public right of way with the location deemed "as traveled" . Eventually this road joins with "Paradise Drive" further into the woods. (see attached marked tax maps) Everyone I know calls the road from its origin at 206 West Mill Road but that is not what the Town considers it on their maps.
Not that it matters at this point, but I seem to remember one of those state wooden signs on the right as you would enter off of 206 onto the now gated road, high up in a tree that read "West Mill-Fireline" similar to the ones on Cherry Hill Rd and Quaker to name a couple.The State of NJ interactive tax map lists the "unnamed public road" as Sycamore Road, and it shows the current access to Paradise Lakes (not on Hammonton tax map), as "W Mills Rd". Does that mean that the main access road to Paradise Lakes is a state road through Wharton? I wonder where the state pulls the data from for the map? If it was just a codification of municipal tax maps, then the roads, and the road names, would match the Hammonton tax map.
