Asbury Park Sun: AP Transit Village Award Update!

ASBURY PARK AWARDED $325K TRANSIT VILLAGE GRANT

By Michelle Gladden
“A $325,000 Transit Village grant awarded by the NJ Department of Transportation [NJDOT] will be used to fund a wayfinding signage and construction project, city officials announced via a written news statement Tuesday.”

 

“The designation is given to municipalities that show a commitment to revitalization and redevelopment that encourages the use of public transportation, particularly where infrastructure is already in place and where multi-modal transportation options are readily available, Michele Alonso has said. Another important factor is the advancement of sustainable programs that focus on reducing auto-dependency.”

“Current projects within the Transit Village designation include the 63-unit Renaissance from the Michaels Group; Interfaith Neighbor’s 20-unit Parkview AP, an owner occupied duplex with adjacent income property; the 104-unit Boston Way project; a 40-rental unit sustainable project at 201 Memorial Drive; the recently completed five-unit work/live units at 301 Memorial Drive and a nearby planned 76 rental unit project; and Interfaith Neighbors previously proposed 47,000 square foot JAMS Performing Arts Center on Springwood that would feature a 200-seat performance/lecture hall, gallery space, theater, lounge and restaurant.”
