Asbury Park, NJ Keep North Beach A Beach

Asbury Park, NJ Keep North Beach A Beach

The Jersey Shore Chapter is working with other groups to stop the development of the North End Beach of Asbury Park; 15 townhomes that That beach is threatened by development that will: * Decrease Public Access to the beach * Reduce the size of the parking lot used by anglers & surfers * Build in front of Asbury Towers, Green Acres Land * Build on Ocean Avenue * Build in a V-Zone (wave velocity) against State CAFRA rules Asbury Park has traditionally kept everything east of Ocean Ave as public space. This is preferred to the 15 luxury townhomes proposed.

New City Council memebrs elected in May 2013 have increased the prospects for saving the site. They have completed a Green Acres application to the state which the last administration would not do. Monmouth County has completed appraisals of the property and has pledged matching funds to the State's Green Acres funds if accepted.
