Residents simmer over exclusive private pool club
An engineer for Asbury Park's master developer, iStar, returned to the Planning Board Monday night to explain his revised findings on how the area north and west of its planned private pool, immediately east of the North Beach condos, would fair through a major storm. Despite hours of minutia-filled testimony in response to residents' often critical questions, mechanical facilities engineer Sean Delaney eventually offered that he had never contacted the Deal Lake Commission, whose mission includes restraining the lake from overflowing and flooding any of seven towns along its banks. Deal Lake would receive the bulk of the pool's runoff.
Residents are invited to present their views on the entire project for three minutes, one time, before the planning board at 7 PM on February 3.
