ALLENHURST, NJ-This Monmouth County community is looking for someone to redevelop an eight-acre site Downtown. The local board of commissioners, headed by Mayor Joseph M. Coyne, this week passed an ordinance establishing a Main Street redevelopment plan and setting in motion an RFP process.

That ordinance would give special consideration to potential developers that would deliver commercial properties to the site rather than residential. According to a copy of the redevelopment plan developed by the PMK Group of Farmingdale, which was obtained by, any residential development would be of the senior-citizen variety.

Most of the eight-acre site is owned by the town and by Jersey Central Power & Light. There are also seven commercial parcels within the tract, and the selected developer would be given the power to negotiate a buyout with each of the individual private owners. Eminent domain would only be used “as a last resort,” according to the commissioners.

The board of commissioners has slated a Nov. 28 hearing of the redevelopment and ordinance. The current timetable calls for the submission of development proposals during the coming winter months and selection of a developer in the spring.
