The Atlantic City Council, Wednesday, will act on accepting the site plans for the Ash Street Single-Family Housing Development Project. Boose Building Construction, L.C. has proposed the nearly $1.26-million dollar project, which would be constructed between 1405 and 1503 Ash Street. The City’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved the site plan during their meeting last week.
Boose is requesting a grant from the City in the amount of $80,000 in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to aid in making the project a reality. The first payment of $40,000 would be paid when public improvements (grading, street, water, sanitary and storm sewer) are installed. Construction of the first house is slated to begin this year, with two more houses next year, and three houses to follow. The second TIF payment of $40,000 would be paid when the third foundation is in place. Boose says the last two houses they completed in past two years sold before they were completed, which is indicative of the need for more, single family homes, according to the company.
In other business, the Atlantic City Council, Wednesday, will act on accepting the site plans for a 6,813-square foot addition to the Heritage House at 1200 Brookridge Circle. The plans were approved 5-1 during the P&Z Commission meeting, with the dissenting vote only having concerns dealing with storm water, but otherwise was strongly in support of the project. A representative of Wesley Life will be on-hand at the meeting to address any such concerns.
And, the Atlantic City Council will act on approving a Resolution approving the contract and bonds for the 2015 Street Improvement Project. Their meeting in the Council’s Chambers at City Hall, begins at 5:30-p.m., Wednesday.
