Long Branch City Council Advances Pier Reconstruction with State Grant

Overview: At the recent Long Branch City Council meeting, a development was announced regarding the construction of a new fishing and pedestrian pier, thanks to a substantial state grant. Mayor John Pallone revealed that the city received a $3.25 million grant from the state Boardwalk Preservation Fund, which will enable the revitalization of a historic Long Branch landmark. The pier, envisioned to be approximately 500 feet long, is set to be fully ADA accessible and will be located along the right-of-way next to the L Street beach. The project commencement is slated for the year 2025, with more details to be released in the coming months.

Overview: In a recent Long Branch City Council meeting, ordinances involving the Broadway Gateway Redevelopment plan and parking regulations took center stage, while citizens engaged in discussions that highlighted their concerns about local government decisions. The council approved an amendment to prevent the demolition of single-family homes within the redevelopment zone, and after public debate, excluded Madison Avenue from metered parking. However, a proposed parking ordinance for Long Branch Avenue was rejected due to concerns over beach access fees.

Overview: In a recent Long Branch City Council meeting, the council approved the sale of a vacant property on Long Branch Avenue and introduced new ordinances affecting off-street parking regulations and meter parking areas.

Overview: The Long Branch City Council convened to discuss several key city developments, with a primary focus on the new Health, Wellness, and Technology Center, which is poised to become a landmark project involving the repurposing of buildings donated by Mammoth Medical Center. The center, to be located at the intersection of Bath and Third Avenue, will encompass a fitness center, educational facilities, and state-of-the-art technology services. In conjunction with the center, plans for a new park equipped with various recreational amenities were also presented. The meeting addressed additional topics including the Broadway Gateway Redevelopment amendments, property sales, and concerns raised by residents regarding the city’s financial reporting and decision-making processes.

Overview: In a recent Long Branch City Council meeting, residents learned of ongoing delays in obtaining CPA audits for Pier Village 3, raising concerns over accountability and financial transparency. Vincent LePore, a local resident, highlighted the administration’s extended timeline to fulfill his Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request, which now reaches a six-month delay. The audits are critical for verifying compliance with financial agreements tied to the urban renewal project’s Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) program.
