    The thumbnails are of plans presented at an April 2018 Council meeting. If anyone knows if they’ve changed, let me know.

    So according to the article, in 2017 the property was NOT part of the Seaport Redevelopment (because Matt said the planner made a mistake).
    1. Was that changed then or is that being changed now?
    2. The Redevelopment zone and the Seaport Redevelopment – are they one and the same? If not do they overlap and, for this purpose, have the same building rules?

    Admin- Would you mind posting the Recycling scam requiring us to use S-E-V-E-N DWP workers to take away this crap. Didn’t know we had that many DPW workers left. No wonder we’re broke.

    Does anyone know what the fate of the bank building itself will be within this proposed project? I rather like that building.

    I was told about a year ago, that the old bank bldg on 9th would remain and would be converted into offices. It has been closed for over 7 years.

    I’m not sure whether anyone knows whether the developer has the same plans for the site or not, but in those renderings you must realize that giant building is on 9th Ave. Plopped right on top of the houses that are there.

    In the article the mayor seems to state that the project has changed. Unfortunately it is still listed as 4 stories, which is too much for that location. In my opinion, anything that is on the east side of main or borders on a residential lot should be 3 stories and have a large setback to act as a buffer. The already developed property on 8th & Main and the new one on 5th & Main meet those standards. The redevelopment plan should be changed to reflect those standards, not whatever the builder wants.

    Ive heard that the bank building will go under the redesigned plan. The majority of the building will be on Main. With a better buffer in back to protect residents on 9th. But, we shall all have to wait and see.

    Isn’t there a mandated height restriction in the redevelopment zone? How many stories/height is the bank building?

    The fact of the matter is this present gang of characters (mayor and council)mean to sell us all out to a bunch of lousy developers who don’t give a rat’s butt about Belmar.

    14 – I will bet that the numerous investors in this project will come forward and express how much they love Belmar. Remember, there were some past political leaders who expressed their love of Belmar as political tag lines. Baloney to all of them!
