Sikh temple in Woodbridge, Carteret NJ seeks expansion

CARTERET – Plans to build a larger, three-story Sikh temple on the Carteret and Woodbridge border will go before the borough’s Zoning Board of Adjustment next week.

Applicant Singh Sabha Inc. is seeking preliminary and final site plan approval with variances to build the temple in an area where it is not permitted. The new structure is expected to replace an existing smaller, one-story temple on the property.

A virtual public hearing on the application is scheduled for July 16.

The site at 941 Port Reading Ave. is in the Port Reading Avenue 3 zone in Woodbridge and a residential zone in Carteret. The site is bordered by Port Reading Avenue, Larch Street, Arthur Avenue and South East Grant Avenue.
