jetty42 posted a topic in New Jersey FishingAs some of you are likely aware, the Army Corp. of Engineer's is currently constructing a new Sea Wall at the Municipal Pavilion, approximately 30 yards East of the Existing Seawall. This work has been planned for a number of years and residents/frequent visitors are generally aware of the disruption. Nevertheless, the town apparently has other construction plans that have largely been authorized in secret. As best as most interested parties can tell, the borough has authorized the construction of an "observation deck". Since the deck is being financed by the town (not the Army Corp.), there is growing interest as to the what, why, and how are far as the fiscal costs. Fiscal costs aside, for non-residents, this project may be worth paying attention to since: Only a few people have seen the plans (the mayor does not have interest in being transparent.) There are potential impacts on access and parking for non-residents. The mayor is reliably dense enough to try to push through a new project that will impede access / disrupt parking / cost a fortune / violate some sort of Federal and/or State law. Additional background can be found here. http://tworivertimes.com/observation-deck-planned-in-monmouth-beach/ Residents and non-residents are encouraged to attend the Borough Meeting on November 20th at 6:PM. Finally, a local email encouraging attendance is circulating (highlights below.)
