Belmar Awarded $650,000 Grant to Make Main Street Improvements from NJEDA

Belmar was awarded a $650,000 million dollar grant from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority to make streetscape improvements on Main Street between 10th Avenue and 5th Avenue, Mayor Matthew J. Doherty today has announced.

These improvements to Belmar’s Main Street enhance the appeal of our downtown and will attract more customers to restaurants retail shops, and other businesses in the area, Doherty said.

"This award assists Belmar’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy and will support Belmar’s continued growth as a tourist destination for the metropolitan area and beyond,” said Mayor Doherty.  “I extend our gratitude to Michelle Brown and the NJEDA team for this grant award.”

The street-scape project is a continuation of the improvements previously completed on Main Street between 16th Avenue and 10th Avenue.  The project includes updated and energy efficient street lighting and sidewalk improvements to make a more walkable downtown. The newly awarded project will have a positive impact on both aesthetics and safety.

Wasn't main street recently improved (within the last ~5 years)? They put in the paver sidewalk and those ridiculous bike racks.
