Transferring these old clubs is a whole ordeal. You essentially have to purchase the entity that holds the property to prevent it being transferred after 1979 and losing the ability to use it for recreation. I’ve been trying to find something suitable to do so for the better part of a decade.
Did you mean purchase "it from" the entity (person) who holds the property? I would think you'd have to be a relative of the person to keep it for living space.
No. The property must remain “held” by the same entity/person after 1979. So you have to purchase the entity (thus no property transfer).
I have been a licensed professional planner in New Jersey for 30 years and I have performed a lot of my work in the areas of New Jersey that are under the jusridisction of the Pinelands Commission regulations. I began working on projects in the Pinelands starting in 1982 and I have never encountered the situation that you are describing.
The Municipal Land Use Law (MLUL) at NJSA 40:55 D-68 makes provisions for the continuation of nonconforming uses in a broad sense and the Pinelands Commission makes clear provisions in the Comprehensive management Plan (CMP) for the continuation and limited expansion of nonconforming uses at NJAC 7:50-5.2. Ownership transfer is not cited as a factor in the continuation of the use in the MLUL or the CMP. I am also well aware of the significance of the dates of February 7, 1979 and January 14, 1981 with Pinelands and the "grandfathering" of uses. The only criteria that usually affects nonconforming use is an abandonment of the use for a specified period of time.
I performed work for a gun club in Waterford for a building expansion and it was an expansion of a nonconforming use and required no extraordinary permitting or anguish through the Pinelands or Township.
What obstacles are you encountering in your research ?
I have been wanting to go there to look around but never went because I thought it was a home. Jessica would not let me go down the driveway. Now that it is for sale I can stop in and check the place out. If anyone goes, look around here. Might be something there.
