What Would You Improve in the Boro or Beach in 2013?

If you could make a New Year's resolution for the Boro or Beach, what would it be?

More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com.

Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.

As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in Point Borough or Point Beach  to make it an even better place to live?

Point Borough is working on a plan to improve Bridge Avenue. Any suggestions?

Point Borough is also considering setting up a town-wide reverse 911 system, but there may be disagreement about whether it's needed or whether spending for it should be capped at a specific amount. The town can also opt to pay to use automated robo calls each time a need arises. What do you think?

 Sounds like most members of the Point Beach governing body want to keep the overnight summer parking plan, but may be doing some tweaking. Do you have any suggestions? Are there sections of District 4 that should be removed from the plan? Should any section of District 3 be added?

Do you think the parking plan worked this past summer to help keep bar patrons off residential streets in the wee hours? Now is the time to voice your questions, concerns and suggestions to the mayor and council who will discuss this at upcoming meetings.

What is on your Point Borough or Point Beach wish list? What is one thing you would improve in 2013?

Tell us in the comment section below or blog about your ideas for how the towns can improve.

"Let's start off 2013 with the truth" by toni depaola. True politico-speak. Are you suggesting that you ended 2012 without the truth? Why has Ocean County thrown this on the back burner for so long? You do get your political marching orders from there (as well as your paycheck and benefits) so I would think you would know. Maybe you would like to share it with us?

Thank you for clearing up where the monies would come from for such a project , Toni. The streetscape idea started long before Sandy. Although I believe our citizens who have suffered extreme damage should be our first priority, I just wish some commitment could be made to fix up ANY part of Bridge Ave. Something is better than nothing. Just my New Years wish...
