The Jersey Shore Chapter is working with other environmental and historic preservation groups to stop the development of the North End Beach of Asbury Park, NJ.

The north end beach of Asbury Park is threatened by development that will:

    • Build in an area flooded by Deal Lake during Hurricane Irene and from storm surge during Superstrom Sandy
    • Decrease Public Access to the beach
    • Reduce the size of the gravel parking lot used by anglers & surfers
    • Build in front of Asbury Towers, partially on Green Acres Land
    • Build on Ocean Avenue
    • Build in a V-Zone (wave velocity) against State CAFRA rules

Asbury Park has a long tradition of keeping everything east of Ocean Ave as public space. Preserving this land as public space and improving it would be much better than the 15 luxury townhomes proposed.
