TOMS RIVER – Officials in the Borough of South Toms River announced an upcoming Business Roundtable with businesses and property owners along the Route 166 and Flint Road area. The Roundtable discussion for the improvement initiative will be on Thursday, January 25 at 6 p.m. at the Municipal Complex, 19 Double Trouble Rd.
To date, the Borough has removed over 100 abandoned boats, installed new sidewalks and curbing, and provided safer ingress and egress along the strip mall section.
“We now look to expand on these improvements and capitalize on the business community’s knowledge to create a thriving business environment,” stated Mayor Oscar Cradle.
“With aggressive plans to redevelop our waterfront, expand recreation, and install a new bike path on the south side of Route 166, we have many initiatives to share with our community and look forward to working with our businesses,” stated Councilman Rolzhausen, Redevelopment Liaison.
The Borough will be taking an additional step of submitting a Town Center Designation application to the State of New Jersey, which will allow property owners on Flint Rd and Route 166, to utilize up to 80 percent impervious coverage of their property, and maximize their property value.
Businesses and property owners interested in the Borough’s improvement initiatives are encouraged to attend this free, public event. Any business who wishes to present an idea is advised to contact Joseph Kostecki, Borough Administrator.
