APSUN: ISTAR OPEN TO REVISE NORTH ASBURY BEACHFRONT PLAN

Asbury Park’s boardwalk is a thoroughfare through the city north to south. It must be (and feel) safe and accessible for everyone, from the residents of the senior tower to the children from every neighborhood in the city. We’re confident that iStar realizes that they are partnering with the city for the long term, and will foster a good relationship going forward by being engaging and transparent throughout the development of the waterfront.

An excerpt from a letter to iStar from Save Asbury’s Waterfront:

Like iStar, Save Asbury’s Waterfront (SAW) supports a planning process that will provide a community-based vision for the redesign of the public improvements at the north end boardwalk area, Fisherman’s parking lot and Bradley Cove.   Specifically,  SAW seeks to foster and encourage appropriate development along Asbury Park’s waterfront that will:
 

1. Maximize social inclusion and provide access for all residents and visitors

2. Recognize current coastal development guidelines and practices

3. Be sensitive to biodiversity, wildlife habitats, pollution and other environmental concerns

4. Be transparent during all phases of planning and implementation
