Dec 20, 2018,  Neptune Township Committee meeting minutes:  Actual excerpts are in italics and quotes:

“Anabelle Bissett, Ocean Grove spoke at the Public Portion.,

She expressed concern about the North End development. She saw the 2008 Plan in the web site and asked if that was outdated. Mr. Anthony* stated that is the correct and current plan.

” Mr. Gadaleta* added that OGNED* has submitted a concept plan for the North End and the Township is in the process of negotiating a permanent Redevelopment Agreement.*   

“Ms. Bissett stated that a lot of changes have taken place in 10 years. Ocean Grove does not need more condos, and there are already vacant store fronts on Main Avenue. Ocean Grove is unique and should be kept distinct from Asbury Park.”

  “Jack Bredin, Ocean Grove, speaking at the Public Portion,  stated that the “North End Plan cannot be done in phases, it has to be done in one shot because the footings and pilings have to be installed first and they have to support whatever structures are built.

“The parking garage is larger than the North End lot, there has been confusion as to how many units are being built and the resolution is not specific.

“The Engineer will have to decide the weight of the buildings before the piles are installed.”

“The Mayor (Williams)  replied that the Township will be looking at all of that. At a recent meeting of the Redevelopment Committee, a total of 34 different parameters of the North End project were discussed.”

*Editor’s notes:

a. The Revelopment Law calls for a Redevelopers Agreement, not a “Redevelopment Agreement.”  So what is the definition of a “permanent Redevelopment Agreement?” 

b. Mr. Gadaleta say that a “concept plan” has been submitted for the North End. Presumably that ” “concept plan” was presented to the Township.

Why has that “concept plan” not been made public?  And note that a “concept plan” is not a final site plan.  The minutes do not explain what they mean by a “concept plan.”

Congratulations to Ms. Bissett for speaking out at that Dec. 20 meeting.

c . Mr. Vito Gadaleta is the Township manager.  Mr.  Anthony is the Township Attorney.

d.  “OGNED”   This is the group which has been identified as the “redeveloper,”  but that designation is not yet permanent.     OGNED BF Sept. 14, 2018

e. Gobbledygook prevails once again and mostly goes unchallenged.

SANTANA  “Black Magic Woman.”
