The Margate Boardwalk Committee shared an update on WOND 1400am Radio on Tues, March 10.
Last week, Margate Commissioners were compelled to ask voters a simple question. Should we rebuild the Margate Boardwalk?
614 signatures on a petition was all it took. Margate Commissioners have agreed to allow for a referendum question being placed on the Nov. 2020 general election ballot.
Listen to David Spatz of WOND Radio as he interviews Glenn Klotz of the Margate Boardwalk Committee:
Rebuilding the Margate Boardwalk. Seriously damaged during the storm of 1944. Last remaining parts of the boardwalk we either washed away, or was buried, during the storm of 1962
So far, only local, registered voters can cast their vote on this question. Klotz hopes to poll non-voting Margate taxpayers as well.
This will be a non-commercial boardwalk tucked behind the 14ft dune.
Spatz: I know of many people in Margate who are IN FAVOR of rebuilding the Margate Boardwalk.
A bayside promenade being planned seems to be nothing but a walkway for commercial properties along Amherst Ave.

I am grateful that the building of the boardwalk will be put to a vote as I do not know of anyone except City officials who are in favor of it.
When you say “tucked behind the dune” are you planning this between residences and the dune or the ocean side of the dune. We don’t want a boardwalk next to our homes.
