Headline below on the NJ New Commons Local Beat which is put out by Montclair State University as “weekly roundup of the best reporting by community news sources.” It links to our latest article about the Warrington, and it is not the first time.
This is their headline: “DESPITE APPARENT VIOLATIONS OF STATE LAW, VACANT OCEAN GROVE BOARDING HOUSE TO BECOME BOUTIQUE HOTEL”
Sometimes I wonder whether posting articles looking at land use law aberrations in Ocean Grove is more than merely spinning our wheels. It seems that what we do has no impact on events in the Grove. But, two days ago we had 1200 visits to the Blogfinger.net site, and then that gets multiplied as links are shared and when other sources, such as the “Local Beat” also puts out our stories.
We believe that these articles are read by local players (lawyers, engineers, politicians, planners ,etc.) and we think that they are worried about our revelations. Maybe we can slow down some plans that are wrong for the town. And maybe officials at the County or State level will look at what we are revealing.
