(Atlantic) The Atlantic Planning and Zoning Commission is calling for an engineering study on 19th Street before they make a decision on a proposed housing project Assistant Atlantic City Administrator John Lund says the study will have some influence on the Commissions decision to allow the rezoning of the parcel.
Lund says 19th Street is one of the smallest residential streets that a city can have. There are two very large senior care facilities on the north side and some residential housing to the south.
“There is truck traffic, cars parked in the streets in winter, there is a huge problem with snow build up and a lot of times it has been reduced to a one way street,” stated Lund. “And there is some concerned neighbors that feel the southern Heights Housing project would Exacerbate that.”
In November, Atlantic developer Don Sonntag presented the Atlantic City Council with a proposed housing project. The project, consisting of rentals and duplex’s slated to cost around $1.4 to $2.0 million near this area. However, the Planning and Zoning Commission says they want to review the 19th Street engineering study before they make any type of recommendation on the Southern Heights II housing project.
