Thomas Mato Blanchot feat. WAWA:  “Isn’t She Lovely”

Editor’s Note:  This Stevie Wonder song is about his newborn daughter, but in a larger sense he is writing about the beauty of God’s gifts.

Shouldn’t we try to preserve one of the few remaining open vistas at the Jersey Shore for all to enjoy, not just a select few?      Go take a walk at the North End of OG and look around, especially at the open views of the ocean.   Why not start by sending letters to the Township Committee. They have the power to cancel that zoning disaster in favor of a gift to the people.

In Morris County, they pay farmers to keep the land forever as farms. Why don’t our elected officials campaign in Trenton and Washington to do the same sort of thing here by turning the North End into a wonderful seaside park  (perhaps with a vast underground parking garage to soften the financial loss for the Camp Meeting Association.)

A reasonable Plan B would be to return to single family zoning for that project.
