Listen: The Margate Boardwalk Committee were guests on the Primetime with Dan Klein Radio Show, on WOND 1400am, this past Monday night.
Glenn Klotz, Steve Davidson and crew, shared the latest details on their efforts to rebuild the Margate Boardwalk. They also reminded listeners about the Margate Boardwalk Rally at Lucy the Elephant, this Sunday, Aug 26., at 5:30p.
Some items discussed on the Dan Klein Radio Show:
A Boardwalk survey will be taken soon. Maybe a petition, then a referendum in the Spring of 2019.
All 3 Margate Commissioners seem to be hedging their bets on a Boardwalk.
Klein talked about Ocean City re-decking of their Boardwalk.
Klotz: Boardwalk costs at this time, are speculative.
Experts suggest that financing the rebuild of a Margate Boardwalk, can be easily accomplished through a mixture of grants, long-term bonding at low interest rates, sponsorship and donations.
Would a Margate Boardwalk help in traversing over those dunes? Yes. Of course.
Getting to the beach. Not so easy anymore. Crossing 4 lanes of Atlantic Ave can be hairy. Especially with kids in tow. Sometimes, it’s actually quite dangerous. In Ventnor, where the speed limit is 35 mph, it even worse. All Downbeach towns need to do a better job in making pedestrians and bikers….more safe.
Klein: Ocean City dunes are wider and shorter. You can still enjoy water views and breezes. OC played a major role in design their dunes. But for some reason, Atlantic City, Margate & Ventnor had little input into their dune design.
