Waterfront Redevelopment News

The City of Asbury Park is currently working to amend their Waterfront Redevelopment Plan.  NOAA recently released their Smarth Growth for Coastal and Waterfront Communities in which they state that many coastal and waterfront communities have found that conventional development patterns threaten the assets they treasure most.   Smart Growth approaches, such as preserving open space and critical environmental areas and directing development toward existing communities, can help communities be more resilient to hazards created by weather and climate change such as sea level rise, and coastal and inland flooding.  Smart Growth principles also provide a framework for making growth and development decisions yield better economic, environmental, community and public health results.

Check the stories below to see if Asbury Park is following Smart Growth principles for coastal communities.
