News and Info About Save Asbury’s Waterfront

APCSC Support of Save Asbury’s Waterfront

Asbury Park Complete Streets Coalition supports city development and initiatives which make every part of the city livable and accessible to everyone.  Our goal in support of the Save Asbury’s Waterfront campaign is to maintain the character of this part of the waterfront and boardwalk so that it’s completely open and welcoming to residents and visitors, and to protect the natural environment of the area.  The financial burden in the initial goal of the campaign will be daunting.  It is to stop the bulldozers and bring the developer Istar and the city back to the table to reexamine the plans (see below).  We have faith that the mayor and city council are listening and considering our agenda as described in the the Asbury Park Sun and on the ABC 7 news report.

Please come to the City Council Meeting on Thursday, 11/8:  5pm press conference; 6pm Istar plans; 7pm public comment.
