Farrington Boulevard is off Route 33 westbound, just west of Millstone Road.

The application was scheduled to have its first hearing on June 8, but board members did not have enough time during the meeting for the plan to be presented. The initial hearing for the application is now scheduled for July 13.

According to the application, Force 5 Holdings seeks to construct the indoor recreational facility on a 13-acre vacant lot in a planned commercial development zone.

The proposed building is 40,200 square feet in size and would be used for activities such as cricket, badminton, laser tag, table tennis, arcade games and other related activities.

According to the application, the intended hours of operation would be 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days per week. There would be five to 10 employees and between 50 to 80 customers at a time. The building has a proposed height of 33.15 feet and Force 5 Holdings is seeking variance bulk relief for the building height.


Members of the public are invited to a reading of the Declaration of Independence in Allentown on July 4.

To celebrate America’s 246th birthday, municipal leaders from Allentown and Upper Freehold Township will join members of the community to publicly read the Declaration of Independence at 9 a.m. July 4 in Pete Sensi Park, Main Street, Allentown, according to a press release.

The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence was held in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776, and other readings were held later that same day in Trenton and in Easton, Pa.

The Declaration of Independence was adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776, and copies of the document were printed and sent by messenger to be distributed throughout the newly founded 13 states.

At the time, Allentown was a village frequented by many travelers en route from Philadelphia to New York. It is likely the Declaration was proclaimed in 1776 from very close to the same site at which it will be read 246 years later on July 4, according to the press release.

The reading is free and sponsored by The Allentown Village Initiative. For more information, call 609-208-9991.
