So Good, They Banned It
Check out these two ads from 1962. Hillsborough's Village Green was the first post-war cluster development in New Jersey.
Cluster-zoning allowed for smaller individual lot sizes than the one to three acres usually permitted, with the remaining acreage being reserved for parkland and recreation.
Cluster-type developments were so innovative - and successful - that after Village Green, Hillsborough promptly disallowed future development of this type - a ban that lasted for many years.
