    Will there be amplified music? I certainly would not buy or rent a condo with a restaurant/bar below or outside my windows, next to a railroad as well! Seems like bad planning to me.

    the building site area will be raised about 4 feet with fill material to comply w/FEMA and a questionable number of municipal parking lot permits will be issued for reserved spaces.

    My mind is still reeling about the passing of the LOKO thing without the planning board having details about what they are approving.

    How much would you pay to live in Belmar, under a bridge, next to corner property housing restaurant/bar and view of the Police Dept parking lot?

    Maybe it’s warehousing space that increases in value until government condemns it for parking, transit, etc.

    from the Start:

    1. the redeveloper owns a 20,000 square foot lot

    2. then the Mayor & Council gives ’em 16,000 square feet of Belmar land for $1

    3. NOW, the redeveloper has 46,000 square feet of land

    4. redeveloper gets Planning Board carte blanche

    5. Belmar gets high profile buildings that block viewscapes, a couple of bucks and additional parking burden

    The monster on 5th and Ocean set the building precedent for Belmar or so it seems.

    #16 Are you referring to the building sitting between 5th and 6th on Ocean Ave? AKA Taylor Pavillion which is one
    story high?

    Why more retail space? There’s plenty available in town.
    The next thing the mayor will want is the tax payers to pay for a multi level garage because of the poor planning. Vote him out

    #19, Exactly, there is plenty of unrented floor space awl ovur town. More retail now is just ridiculous. Not only here in town. Just look everywhere. Especially up and down Rt.35. There are even billdings that have been built and never occupied. But the building goes on.

    Wasn’t there some kind of attempt by the developer to only have residential? And please correct me if im wrong but wasnt it Brennan and Mcgovern that said no to those changes??

    Ok. I just read the previous article about the vote to have only residential. It was Brennan and Nicoly that voted against it! I stand corrected. So there we go. Another poor decision. We need another restaurant like we need a hole in the head.

    Not only restaurant, but restaurant/bar. We don’t need that, but maybe someone does. Overflow parking can proceed to Inlet Terrace.

    #23 Callmecynical. That is why Belmar is the smallest municipality in NJ with the most amount of alcoholics. Very sad.

    #23 Years ago on the site where Kleins Bar & Restaurant is today was a Bar and
    Liquor store. It was like the B.A. Big and busy. There was a law then that no one entered there in shorts after 7PM
    If they would wear wrap skirts they could enter and drink if not they were turned away. They wore the skirts.Men too. They also used all of the parking
    in the area including Inlet Terrace. The Borough made No Parking on 5th Ave. as far as the Lake if I remember correctly. That took care of Dudley’s
    It burned down in later years and 5th
    Ave. was reopened. Moral where there is a will there is a way.

    The Planning Board can impose parking requirements only for building floor area. Open-air beer gardens have virtually unlimited occupancy.
