Belmar Mayor: Gov. Christie Will Help Us Reopen Boardwalk, Beach on May 22

Mayor announces governor will be joining in ribbon-cutting

The Belmar boardwalk and beachfront will officially open May 22 with much fanfare, to include a visit from the governor.

One of the first towns to drive pilings for a new boardwalk, Belmar saw Gov. Chris Christie present to celebrate the beginning of construction, and local officials said the governor will return to celebrate the official reopening of the Belmar boardwalk.

The ribbon-cutting on the beach and boardwalk will be held May 22, and Mayor Matt Doherty said this week Christie will be there.

Christie and Doherty held a press conference with local officials for the public to kick-off the wide-scale rebuilding of the boardwalk this winter. The project began in January and the final boards were lain late April. May 22, the boardwalk will reopen officially.

For that first piling in January, Doherty invited the governor back for Memorial Day. Doherty said this week the governor will be there.

you are right on the money,,,, that town and people are truly a bunch of A-Holes. All that town does is hassle business people and tourists.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know the parking meter situation? I didn't see posts in the boardwalk for traditional meters...are they going with pay stations?
