    Wow. Now that’s a dandy of a building! Imagine that! Open information. Inside design plans. All on mandatory above the flood plane pilings, up to new codes. Humm. Hello? Mayor and council of Belmar? Maybe you guys can call Avon and Mantoloking and ask them how they accomplished all that for so much less than you guys want to spend!! Just sayin!!

    Gorgeous building. Would be nice to have something like that.

    Long past the time to get a reasonably priced pavilion building done already.

    #16 Yes they are they are paid from the payroll budget i don’t believe there was overtime, and the project was not inflated to make a profit, hence common sense and saving $$$$.

    Design efficiency difference …. Mantoloking vs. Belmar …. Mantoloking is appropriately utilizing the ground level …. for parking and assembly uses …. Belmar pavilions would only waste the ground level with combustible storage.

    Exactly my point. Avon figured it out long ago. Business administrator vs business administrator, hands down Avon wins

    What is the new building being built on the Avon boardwalk? I hope it’s being built with the change from the 1st one.

    The fact that there is no alcohol sold in the city of ocean beach certainly gives credit to the town and the beach and being #1 beach in state.
