The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority has scheduled three public meetings for residents and land owners who will be affected by the agency’s plans for a mixed use development project in the South Inlet section of Atlantic City.
Residents of more than 60 units in Vermont and Metropolitan plazas will be displaced by the project that will add shops, restaurants and new housing. A handful of other homes will also be affected. CRDA will soon begin the appraisal process, and residents and homeowners will be offered relocation help, including financial assistance.
The blocks included in the project that are bordered by Connecticut, Rhode Island, Oriental and Pacific avenues. A few parcels on Oriental Avenue north to Vermont Avenue are also included.
The meetings are:
- 6 p.m. July 17 at Metropolitan Plaza, 165 S. Rhode Island Ave. This meeting is specifically for residents of Metropolitan Plaza affected by the project
- 6 p.m. July 18 at the Uptown School Complex, 323 Madison Ave.
- 2 p.m. July 19 at the Uptown School Complex
CRDA has devoted an initial $1.2 million to the acquisition process. Following the public meetings, the agency will schedule one-on-one meetings with residents.
