Should Eagle Ridge Golf Club Get Bulldozed? [PUBLIC OPINION]
Initial public comment on the application has been sufficient to warrant a public hearing ~ N.J.D.E.P.
In Ocean County News …. should Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Lakewood get bulldozed? That is the question that will be addressed at a public hearing …. according to the D.E.P. the public hearing, under the Coastal Area Facilities Review Act, is slated for Tuesday, May 9th. The event takes place in the auditorium at Jackson Memorial High School on Don Connor Boulevard in Jackson. Local Officials are urging the public to attend and voice their opinions.
The hearing is to discuss the possible end of Eagle Ridge. According to a recent Patch article ,,, GDMS Holdings LLC, wants to build more than 1,800 homes — 936 senior housing residential units and 936 basement apartments — along with community centers, a retail facility with 243 parking spaces, a clubhouse, and “associated amenities” on the site that currently is Eagle Ridge Golf Course.
The purchase of Eagle Ridge Golf Club by GDMS Holdings appears to still be in limbo according to a recent article in the Asbury Park Press.
In addition, in the same Patch article …. written comments regarding this proposed development should be sent to:
- Bureau Section Chief
- Bureau of Coastal Regulation
- Division of Land Use Regulation
- New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection
- Mail Code 501-02A,
- P.O. Box 420
- Trenton, New Jersey
Personally I love Eagle Ridge and have attended many events there and have golfed there as well. That being said I understand that business is business, but I would miss Eagle Ridge if it gets bulldozed and turned into a parking lot…..
