Redevelopment Areas

Waterfront Redevelopment Area (Waterfront Redevelopment Plan)
Perhaps the most popular part of the City's redevelopment efforts due to the amount of media attention it receives and its size (approximately 56 acres) the Waterfront Redevelopment Area is envisioned to contain 3,164 residential units and nearly 450,000 square feet of commercial space. Not only will new residential buildings (some containing commercial uses as well) be constructed, but an almost complete "rebuild" of the utility infrastructure and public streetscape will be realized.

The Vive

Central Business District Redevelopment Area(Central Business District Redevelopment Plan)
The historic heart of the City's business community, the Central Business District is well underway to becoming a popular destination and thriving commercial center once more. At projected build-out, the Central Business District could contain nearly 600 residential units on the upper stories of existing buildings, with renovated commercial spaces containing a mix of retail and service industries.

Cookman and Mattison


Scattered Site Redevelopment Area (Scattered Site Phase I Redevelopment Plan) (Scattered Site Phase IA Redevelopment Plan)
As the name implies, the City is actively seeking the redevelopment of deteriorated properties which are scattered throughout the City. The program is working. City administration has entered into negotiations with redevelopers for the first round of available deteriorated properties. The primary strategy for the scattered site program is to firmly encourage unresponsive property owners to fix up their properties, if the owner doesn't do it, then someone who will, will be found.

Main Street Redevelopment Area (Main Street Redevelopment Plan)
The Mayor and Council designated the Main Street corridor as a redevelopment area in the Spring of 2004.

Now begins the implementation of this important planning initiative in the City. Main Street Plan Cover Photo

Springwood Avenue Redevelopment Area (Springwood Avenue Redevelopment Plan-Amended)
The City of Asbury Park has adopted a redevelopment plan for this historic city thoroughfare.

The City of Asbury Park received an Achievement in Planning Award from the New Jersey Planning Officials for its work on the Amended Springwood Avenue Redevelopment Plan. The City has also received a 2008 Planning Merit Award from the Monmouth County Planning Board for the Plan and the active public participation process used to draft it.

AFTER A FIRE

While our primary job is to protect the lives and property of the residents of Asbury Park, many times we do not realize the long lasting emotional, physical, and financial affects that fire can have on its victims.  The initial trauma of experiencing a fire is only compounded by the confusion of wondering "What do I do now that the fire is out and the firefighters have left?"

Once the fire is out, the damage becomes another task completed and another statistic for Fire Department records; however, for you as the occupant displaced by fire, it may become a nightmare filled with questions and uncertainties.  All of the things normally in order and not a concern are now in disarray and present problems that must be dealt with immediately.

We at the Asbury Park Fire Department understand what you are going through and we want to assist you in any way that we can. Please download this helpful PDF booklet, which contains information and suggestions that may help you now and in the coming days.

If there is anything we can do to help you, please call us at (732) 502-6300.

Sincerely,

Kevin Keddy, Fire Chief

BLOOD PRESSURE CHECK

Blood pressure checks are available at our Fire Station.  No appointment is necessary.

Did you know...? May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month.

What Is Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is the pressure of the blood against the walls of the arteries.  Blood pressure results from two forces. One is created by the heart as it pumps blood into the arteries and through the circulatory system. The other is the force of the arteries as they resist the blood flow.

What do blood pressure numbers indicate?

  • The higher (systolic) number represents the pressure while the heart contracts to pump blood to the body.
  • The lower (diastolic) number represents the pressure when the heart relaxes between beats.

The systolic pressure is always stated first. For example: 118/76 (118 over 76); systolic = 118, diastolic = 76.

Blood pressure below 120 over 80 mmHg (millimeters of mercury) is considered optimal for adults. A systolic pressure of 120 to 139 mmHg or a diastolic pressure of 80 to 89 mmHg is considered "prehypertension" and needs to be watched carefully. A blood pressure reading of 140 over 90 or higher is considered elevated (high).

What Is High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure (or hypertension) is defined in an adult as a blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure.

High blood pressure directly increases the risk of coronary heart disease (which leads to heart attack) and stroke, especially when it's present with other risk factors.

High blood pressure can occur in children or adults, but it's more common among people over age 35. It's particularly prevalent in African Americans, middle-aged and elderly people, obese people, heavy drinkers and women taking birth control pills. It may run in families, but many people with a strong family history of high blood pressure never have it. People with diabetes mellitus, gout or kidney disease are more likely to have high blood pressure, too.

How can I tell if I have high blood pressure?

The only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked. Your doctor or other qualified health professional should check your blood pressure at least once every two years, or more often if necessary.

This information has been provided by the American Heart Association.

Also visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information.

STORM PARKING
When possible, park vehicles off-street in driveways prior to and during winter storms.
 
Coastal flooding may occur as a result of a storm. Do not park your car on the lake side of roads by Wesley, Sunset, or Deal lakes. If you live in a low-lying area, move your car to higher ground.
 
After snowfall has ended, park on the odd-numbered side of the road. On the following day, park on the even-numbered side of the road
 
Alternate side parking rules do not apply in areas that are marked for no parking in snow emergency. Please refer to the 'Alternate Side/No Parking' Legend HERE (or in some cases street signage) for parking rules.
 
On one-way streets, park on the left hand side of streets as you face the direction of traffic flow (east side for south bound, west side for north bound). This will make it easier for plows to operate on the narrow streets such as Bond, Emory, Heck, Bergh and Webb.
 
With a large snowfall, it will take some time before the plows can get to all the streets. Please contact Public Works at 732-775-0900 with plowing questions. Staff will be out plowing so you might not receive an immediate call back.
_______________________________________________________________________________
SAFETY GUIDELINES
 
In case of high winds, secure your property. Put away outdoor decorations and other items that could be affected by high winds and heavy precipitation. Clear any debris away from storm drains, allowing water to flow properly.
 
Snow and ice should be removed for all exit ways, doors and fire escapes. All Fire Department connections must be cleared of snow and ice. If a fire hydrant is on your property, help out the Fire Department by clearing snow from the immediate area around it.
 
Sidewalks must be cleared by 12 hours after the end of snowfall. Take your time shoveling, and stay wrapped up in layers when outside. Do not shovel snow or aim snowblowers on to the street. Place snow up on the curb out of street lines to prevent it from being plowed back into your driveway. 
 
After the storm has passed, check in on elderly or disabled neighbors.
 
Keep your cell phone fully charged and plugged in. Assemble an emergency kit (includes batteries, a flashlight, radio, first-aid medications, food and water to last three or more days, can opener, cooking tools, hand sanitizers, and toiletries), and know your emergency plan in case of evacuation.
 
In the case of a power outage:
  • Unplug or turn off all lights and appliances, to prevent a circuit overload when the power comes back. Leave one light on and plugged in, in order to tell when the power is back.
  • Do not use candles as a light source. Make sure that you have enough spare batteries for flashlights, lanterns, etc.
  • If you have a generator, do not have it running from inside your house.
  • Keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible, to keep food from spoiling for as long as possible.
  • Do not use your gas oven to warm your house.
  • Turn on faucets to keep your pipes from freezing. 
  • Report outages to JCP&L at 1-888-544-4877

NEW JERSEY NATURAL GAS

How to Recognize a Natural Gas Leak

Smell – The distinctive odor of rotten eggs (You may not smell the odor if you have a diminished sense of smell, the odor is masked by other scents or it has faded.)

Look – Discolored or dead vegetation, disturbed soil or a dense mist above the pipeline

Listen – A loud and high-pitched sound

Act – If you smell or suspect a natural gas leak ...

Evacuate everyone from the building or site immediately and then call NJNG from a safe location at 800-GAS-LEAK (427-5325). Let us know where you are. 

  • Remove cigarettes or other smoking materials from the area, and then promptly extinguish them.
  • Do NOT use telephones, cellular OR cordless, on the premises where the leak is suspected.
  • Do NOT activate light switches, electrical appliances, flashlights, doorbells or even garage door openers as electrical appliances and devices could cause a spark.
  • Do NOT re-enter the building until NJNG has declared it to be safe.

For your safety, we promptly investigate suspected natural gas leaks as a FREE service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

_______________________________________________________________________________
PETS AND STRAYS
 
During a winter storm, if you see an injured or stranded animal that needs help, contact your local animal shelter or the Monmouth County SPCA
 
Please remember that homeless animals are in need of food during storm conditions. A bowl of food or unfrozen water can aid them in survival until conditions improve.
 
When making plans in case of an evacuation, be sure to plan for and bring along your pet.
FOOT CARE - Dogs walking in snowy areas may get large ice balls between their pads, causing the dog to limp. Be sure to keep ice clear from this area. For dogs that have a lot of hair between the pads, keeping it clipped shorter will help with ice ball formation. Dog boots offer protection to those dogs that will tolerate wearing them.

SALT AND CHEMICAL DE-ICERS - Pets who walk on sidewalks that have been "de-iced" are prone to dry, chapped, and potentially painful paws. This will encourage the pet to lick their paws, and ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation and upset. Wash off your pet's feet after an outing with a warm wet cloth or footbath.
