‘GREETINGS FROM ASBURY PARK’ SEMINAR HIGHLIGHTS CITY’S STRATEGIC WEST SIDE REVITALIZATION PLAN
“This is a great opportunity to highlight to professionals and policy makers throughout the state what makes Asbury Park special and the work we are doing to ensure we have healthy communities,” the City’s Director of Planning and Redevelopment Michele Alonso said.”
“The seminar will spotlight the “One City. Asbury Park.” (http://apcompletestreets.org/one-city-one-asbury-park) initiative outlined in the Choice Neighborhoods Plan, which aims to revitalize the city’s largest, but most economically challenged, residential neighborhood into a place of opportunity and economic growth.”
“Alonso said the plan outlines a set of comprehensive directives that address the needs of residents beyond just new housing.”
“This community driven plan aims to revitalize the West Side without displacement and gentrification, and looks forward to a future filled with mixed-income housing, safe streets, economic opportunities, thriving students, and healthy families,” she said.
