Just Saying:  From Jan of Ocean Grove regarding the Neptune Township Zoning Board:

The Zoning Board is a JOKE! I have never experienced a Board opening a meeting where anyone out of order will be asked to leave. If questions are entertained to the Board they do not answer you. They just look at you in silence.

If residents can show that a project would have a negative impact to the town, a normal board would take that into consideration and work with both the residents and the applicant on an amicable solution.

An example would be the 9 condo’s built on Bath Ave. The residents screamed on that street pleading for the board to take into consideration the size of the structure,parking, and how it was going to have a negative impact on the residents and the community. So what did they do to form a compromise NOTHING. Then when the building burned to the ground, Neptune should of enforced their ordinance which stated: When a structure burns down, only demolition is feasible. The owners can only build according to code. This was not enforced and the same will happen on Main Avenue.

This is not a board that serves the interest of both the town and residents. They have no concern for preserving the town as the historic gem which it is. It appears that their only goals are more density and no parking—-so they can build to the max and increase revenue.

Until a unified board is conceived, Ocean Grove will never have an equal opportunity to solve community issues and keep with the gem that we are.

Virginia Smith of Ocean Grove was out this morning after a torrential rain last night. She found that the casino was flooded.  But she also said that it “was not quiet on the eastern front.” There were workers busy with the new Middle Beach boardwalk. Their work had been delayed by some FEMA static, but that is evidently over.

Gail Morrell  of Ocean Grove was at the south end this morning when she spotted this tall piece of equipment.  She says that  “lights along the path of the missing boardwalk are being moved/removed.”  This is significant because there have been complaints about the lighting down there. The CMA said about one month ago that they were waiting for JCP&L to deal with the issue.  Technically, the lights belong to the CMA, but they are not allowed to fiddle with them without  JCP&L’s  being present.
