SPOTSWOOD – The Water Tower at the former Schweitzer-Mauduit International plant on Main Street near the East Brunswick border is scheduled for demolition.
Police apologize for any noise related to the demolition, which is expected between 9-11 a.m. on June 18, according to the message the Spotswood Police Department sent through Nixle on June 17.
The demolition of the water tower will make way for “a new modern facility in the near future.”
In April, members of the Spotswood Borough Council voted “yes” to an ordinance that authorizes the redevelopment of the recently closed Schweitzer-Mauduit International plant on 85 Main St.
The ordinance establishes a redevelopment plan that will repurpose seven parcels of land totaling 59.56 acres. According to plan documents, the repurposed area would feature a mixture of enclosed warehouses, self-storage facilities, distribution centers and office buildings.
