A Victory in Brick – And for Brick

The Township Council has voted to repeal the Planned Residential Waterfront Community Ordinance, which applied to much of Brick’s 53 mile waterfront – the longest of any municipality in New Jersey. Brick residents and SBB supporters turned out to support the Council.

On June 18, 2002 the Brick Township Council unanimously repealed the Planned Residential Waterfront Community (PRWC) ordinance. Save Barnegat Bay is grateful to Councilman Acropolis, Mayor Scarpelli, and the entire Brick Township Council for their support of repeal of this zoning.

The most constructive step that could now be taken is for the County of Ocean to purchase Traders Cove and other waterfront tracts throughout Ocean County as public parks. Reports of pollution at Traders Cove may have been greatly exagerated by those hoping to see it developed.

You can help by writing Freeholder John Bartlett and urging the County of Ocean to purchase Traders Cove and other waterfront tracts throughout Ocean County as public parks.

You can also help by downloading and circulating this petition urging the Ocean County Board of Freeholders to purchase Traders Cove and other waterfront tracts throughout Ocean County as public parks.

Have a look at the Resolutions passed by the governing bodies of Mantoloking and Bay Head asking the the Board of Chosen Freeholders to purchase Traders Cove as a public park.
