    So. How long was this business allowed to operate with these fire safety violations? and, Were these violations occurring under the watchful eye of our former Fire Inspector, who in now in prison? and, Who signed the paychecks of that former Fire Inspector? Can you say, Malfeasance by those involved? Fix the violations.

    There are a couple of good things coming out of all of this.
    First: and foremost the horrible conditions that have been allowed to fester at the Belmar Inn are finally getting media attention after years of falling on deaf ears.
    Second: a united citizenry going beyond party politics standing together to protect our neighborhood.

    All of theses comments are so true. If the Belmar Inn was properly maintained we would not have any problems at all.What they want to put up now is all greed. How could my property value go up with 40 cars going in and out of a garage and drive way?

    #6- Thats silly, regardless of what is around anyone in the summer there are cars a block from the ocean and visitor traffic. how manys cars do the rental properties around bring to the block. The Belmar Inn has been closed for now so you might have forgot that kind of traffic. But traffic is a sign that people want to be in belmar. If people want to be in belmar people want to purchase and live in belmar. Not everything is negative, yet you try to spin it that way. Blogs from a month ago you post where is everyone going to park, now its there is to much parking. You think the developer is greedy. I think you are just plain nasty and selfish, just because your old doesnt mean your wise. Its selfish to be so unreasonable to prevent the entire Belmar Community of a project that could enhance not only your neighborhood but other, impact and help the struggling local businesses, help the revenue of the borough by increasing tax revenue, reduce the strain on resources. All because you are stubborn and selfish. Your actually the biggest bully of them all, making so many calls to the town demanding on issuance of a grass ticket, just because they arent on your side or share your opinion.

    #7 Have you seen the picture of what this building would actually look like on 12th Ave and the view from A st? Buildings of this size do not belong on our residential streets. Put it on Ocean Ave or maybe on your street.

    Dear Admin,
    Is there a record for the most grammar, usage, punctuation and capitalization errors in one comment?

    #8 yes I have seen what the building would look like. And I live on 11th myself I support the project. Unfortunately due to the fact that a supporter of this project are submitted to the backlash I will not put my name to this and subject myself or family to being harassed by neighbors like what has happened so far where Mrs. F calls the borough excessively demanding issuance of a grass ticket with no warning, or wherein she demands the only noise violation sign in Belmar be put right by her property.

    Majority rule? Huh? Seems like the greater number do not want the beast in their neighborhood. If the project passes the zoning board, well, the mayor and his cronies may say “adios” (I surely hope so.) Sometimes I think Belmar is on the hit list of a higher power, due to the “stupidity” of its residents, kind of like Sodom and Gomorrah, God help us.

    #7 Nasty? selfish ?old?stubborn? and a Bully?
    How dare you insult this woman who has done so much for this community. She is entitled to her opinion and many would agree with her. Have a little intelligence and voice your own opinion without insulting her for having her own.Do you call people names to get your point across or is this your version of a non bully.

    She can insult anyone she wants, but she can’t get called out for what she does? She can have an opinion about the project without making nasty personal comments about the people involved or calling the Noto to complain until the issue a violation against a supporter of the project, for grass. I’m protecting the rest of the people from this woman and calling her out for who she really is.

    #13 That’s funny!.Next time cut your grass to avoid the violation instead of posting .You’re just angry because you had to take the lawnmower out once this year! You’re home must be an asset to the neighborhood.You brag how you are in favor of the project. Is it because you only live here a few months out of the year?and don’t know the maintenance rules of your property? Or you don’t care to take care of your property here but where you really live looks beautiful. You really crack me up .Who are you really protecting?

    If someone gets a ticket for not mowing their grass, take responsibility for it for goodness sake. I got a ticket for riding my bike on the boardwalk. I paid the ticket accepting that I was wrong.
    As far as zero tolerance signs, they used to be all over town. Perhaps you should ask borough hall why they were removed. It was under our former mayor and this borough admin. Ask them. Don’t get upset because Maria stands up for herself, is at every almost every town meeting, speaks her mind. Openly and within her right to do so.
    Disagree all you want. You may not like her tone, but then again, she may not like yours.
    At least we all know who she is. And, she is a tuff old broad (90). She can take the heat. Love you Lady M!!

    So the Belmar Inn is a problem? That’s an amazing observation. Here’s an idea: let’s reward the owners, who for years violated the law and treated their neighbors like garbage, with the highest possible price for their neglected property. That’s great! If I start now, maybe I can let my property go to hell, sell drugs on my porch and then in a few short years, sell my place to a developer for 1.5 mil so he can build condos and claim, “hey, it’s better than what is there now’. Genius

    #16- Amen. Finally someone that speaks my language. And don’t forget years of pocketing cash and government Section 8 money. And rather than spending that money on up-keep and adhering to code, eating lobster and traveling the world. And I’m sure if the same “no show” inspectors were still in town and not in jail, this fiasco would still be going on. Fix it, or knock it down and build two houses.

    I heard a rumor that the Belmar Inn was a dumping ground for the police to offload the drunks who would not fit into the town jail. It would seem that, for that to be so, there would have to have been some sort of “arrangement”. A reason to keep the place in operation, no? Like a no-show fire marshal, etc.
