To the Editor:
In reply to the so-called overdevelopment that we listen to so much, let’s get the specifics.
Some functioning for office environment want to prevent development of privately owned jobs accredited as long ago as 1987, as was the commercial advancement in entrance of Heritage Bay. They simply cannot adjust the law!
They are opposed to Barnegat 67 and the Dunkin, Mama Rosa, Pan Asia, World Fitness, new urgent treatment and veterinary centre and so significantly much more we waited yrs to get. These businesses raise profits to the town.
Indeed, we are expanding, and we need to have tax money to continue to keep taxes stable. Grownup communities fork out taxes with no faculty load. The Location on Lighthouse and Sea Crest Pines (both equally grownup communities) will add in excess of $5 million in city taxes, reducing residents’ future tax load. That is how the city did not increase the taxes for the new general public performs setting up and town corridor.
Barnegat is still 40 p.c open space and will remain that way.
The new upscale adult manufactured house development will have a grand clubhouse and selling prices near $300,000, will give us tax funds and will be self-contained, not costing the city any funds. The new adult condominium sophisticated will present our Barnegat seniors a way to give up their big houses and remain in the town they like.
Barnegat needs tax cash to continue on to safely and securely provide its citizens and hold Barnegat township taxes secure.
