Party Town!




Belmar tries to quietly give D’Jais variance!

Permanent year-round operation to be allowed!

The rumors were true after all:


D’JAIS, LLC (Variance Approval)
Block 180, Lot 1
1801 Ocean Avenue, Belmar, New Jersey

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Applicant, D’JAIS, LLC has applied to the Belmar Borough Board of Adjustment for variance approval for a use variance to allow the restaurant and bar to sell alcohol on a year round basis. D’Jais, LLC presently has a seasonal liquor license, and it has acquired a year round license which it would like to move to the premises. The applicant will ask for a use variance to allow this as it is considered an expansion of a non-conforming use in violation of Belmar Ordinance 40-5.1.3,40-5.2 et al, 40-5.2B and 40-5.3.
The Applicant will ask for waiver of site plan approval but if deemed necessary the Applicant will ask for site plan approval.
The Applicant will also ask for any other additional variances whether bulk or use as deemed necessary by the Board.
The Applicant will also ask for any waivers including design waivers as deemed necessary by the Board.
The premises affected are known as Lot 1 in Block 180 on the Tax Map of the Borough of Belmar. The subject premises are located at 1801 Ocean Avenue, Belmar, New Jersey.
The hearing shall take place on January 23, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. (Workshop Meeting) and 7:30 p.m. (Hearing) or as soon thereafter as it can be heard in the Commission Chamber, Municipal Building 601 Main Street, Belmar, N.J, at which time you may appear either in person, or by agent or attorney and present any objection you may have to the granting of this application. The application and supporting documents are on file in the Code Enforcement Office of the Borough of Belmar in the Municipal Building (601 Main Street) and are available for inspection on business days, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The hearing is scheduled for Thursday evening, Jan 23, 7:00 PM at Borough Hall.

    I know people who been waiting for a zoning hearing for 6 months, to repair major storm damage from super storm sandy, how did this nightclub get to the front of the line? How is the unelected board able to make a decision that will effect homes values in belmar for the next 100 years?

    Dont forget rhat they are planning on extending a liquor license across an entire street next 507 to Pied Piper building. I wonder what kind of precedent this is going to have. La Dolce Vita extending to the Pizza/ Food Court place next door , Jacks to the Frankie Feds or Surf Taco. Belmar is getting on a slippery slope.

    Dave, I am interested to hear your thoughts on this issue. Surely you are in favor of free-enterprise and not government intervention to state how property owners can or cannot use their land/business, correct? Less government control, right?

    I wouldn’t care what they did there if it didn’t spill over into the surrounding neighborhood. Problem is that they’ve shown that despite the management’s sincere efforts to prevent it from happening, the neighbors still have to put up with the noise, the public urination and vomiting, and worse. If they could get that under control, then I wouldn’t have any problem. Until then, those problems are an assault on the property rights of the neighbors.

    Ummmm, there is no line for zoning! You must have all your paperwork in order which is NOT easily done without a lawyer. So not to pass judgement but D’Jais is not going to “cheap” out there…sooo, get your ducks in a row and away you’ll go to the FRONT OF THE LINE.
