● The County will begin construction of Barnegat Branch Railtrail – bike path, in the summer, with it expected to be complete in the fall. The path will be on the south side of
Rt.166. It will go the entire length and connect to Herflicker. This will conjoin with the projected Master Plan of Toms River to maximize our plans for our community .
Creating a Better Business Environment
● The Borough has started the process of Town Center Designation. What this does is, once approved by the State, will allow businesses to increase their impervious coverage
from 30% to 70 or 80%. This allows businesses to maximize their property and allow a business boom along our waterfront.
● We are working with our business community, and COBA, our local business organization, to help maintain an ear to the ground of how we can further improve.
● We further look to cleanup our Marina area along Crabbe Rd. Long term plans anticipate the widening of Crabbe Rd with a potential light to allow better business and park access.
The Borough will continue placing a pedestrian sidewalk and curbing all along Route 166. We will also provide better definition of ingress and egress (entry and exit ways) along the commercial section (strip-mall).
