Controversial McConnell Tract Hearing Moved to Oct. 30

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – As trick-or-treat time approaches some residents involved in a fight to ensure bayfront access are bracing for a surprise.An anticipated Sept. 27 Planning Board hearing for an applicant seeking to build three dozen homes on the 7-acre McConnell tract along the Sandy Hook Bay has been rescheduled to Oct. 30 at the Atlantic Highlands Elementary School.The adjournment was granted so the applicant – Denholtz Custom Homes (DCH) – can finish revising concept plans to reflect comments and address concerns expressed by residents and the Planning Board at a previous hearing.In the organization’s initial project plans, DCH set aside nearly a quarter of the tract for public use, including the entire waterfront portion of the parcel.Improvements to this approximately 1.5 acres of land included the reconstruction of the property’s bulkhead and the installation of a 10-foot-wide boardwalk with a 100-foot-long walkway area along the front of the plot.In an Aug. 23 interview with The Two River Times, DCH and Denholtz Associates CEO Steven Denholtz said the cost of improvements to the public portion of this proposed project would total about $1 million, a cost his company would completely absorb.Borough resident Benson Chiles, who fronts the local opposition group Neighbors for Waterfront Preservation (NFWP), said he and his counterparts fear the revisions may reflect a comment made by civil engineer James Kennedy of Kennedy Consulting Engineers in Red Bank.During that Sept. 27 meeting the applicant sought 11 variances for 11 of the 21 proposed homes that did not meet the borough’s lot-shape circle requirement. However, Kennedy said DCH could provide a totally compliant subdivision plan within the zone for just 17 homes, but in doing so would need to build upon the 1.5 acres of waterfront property set aside for the public as open space.“The reason they’re potentially proposing a development with fewer homes on it is because they’re trying to squeeze too many homes on the property in the first place,” said Chiles, a strategic consultant for conservation organizations who specializes in environmental policy development.“The fact is that land is not buildable and they’re playing hardball with it. They’re trying to use it as a bargaining chip and it felt so obvious when (Kennedy) made that comment at the hearing,” Chiles added.Though DCH refused to comment on the situation or shed light on what the revisions will entail, Denholtz did issue a statement to The Two River Times stating, “We appreciate the feedback we received from the board and members of the local community at August’s planning board meeting.”“With these insights in mind, we are in the process of making revisions to our plan and we look forward to a continued dialogue with Atlantic Highlands at the next meeting to ensure that our final project reflects the wishes and character of the surrounding community.”Some of the dialogue presented at the previous hearing focused on two particular features of the development, including the retaining wall proposed to separate the development from the nearby public beach and Sandy Hook Bay Catamaran Club near the western portion of the parcel, and an on-site sewage pump station, which is also located on the western part of the plot.During the hearing Kennedy could not provide visual renderings of what these proposed items would look like, nor could he say what construction materials or style would be used to build the retaining wall.Residents raised further concerns about the unpredictable soil erosion and erosion of beachfront that could occur near these features.Chiles said the sewage pump house is what’s most concerning.“Aside from its location in a flood zone, which presents a risk to its long-term liability, people are concerned about possible smells emitting from it, given its location to a public beach. It’d be a shame if there were any odors from that station.”Chiles and NFWP hope to resolve these issues and more at the Oct. 30 hearing continuance.This article was first published in the Oct. 11 – Oct. 17, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Mindboggling Facts That Will Make You Care About Pinterest

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#e-commerce#iPad#Pinterest#Reddit#social media#Statistics#twitter lauren orsini Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditcenter_img Related Posts Allow this veteran Pinterest observer to get angry for just a moment: It really grinds my gears when people call Pinterest a “niche” social network. Sure, it’s old news that Pinterest is used predominantly by women. But since when is 50 percent of the human population considered a niche interest group?Conceived by three male co-founders, Pinterest’s visual platform was intended to lend itself just as well to stamp collections as shoe collections. Readwrite’s own Brian Hall discovered just how universal the network can be when he observed, “If Pinterest were a magazine, I suspect it would be kept very close to a toilet.”With 70 million users and climbing, Pinterest isn’t going to go away anytime soon. Here’s why you should start caring about this influential network, better late than never.More E-commerce Than FacebookAccording to social login provider Gigya’s latest numbers, Pinterest grabs 41% of e-commerce traffic. Compare that to Facebook at 37%. Since Pinterest is centered around the social discovery of objects (as opposed to friends and family), it makes sense that Pinterest would eventually have the upper hand, but it’s an accomplishment for any platform to sneak up on Facebook’s number-one-in-everything status. More Lucrative E-commerce Than AnyonePinners don’t just like to shop, they like to spend. Even before Pinterest drove more e-commerce than Facebook did, it already was driving more dollars. While the average social shopper (that is, a shopper who discovers an item on the platform and clicks off site to buy it) spends an average of $60 to $80 when coming from Facebook, she spends more like $140 to $180 when coming from Pinterest. Faster Growth Than Any Other Social NetworkImage via TechCrunch, using Comscore dataPinterest’s staggering statistics aren’t limited to just 2013. Last year the e-commerce platform broke a record by reaching 10 million monthly uniques in just nine months. In one of the most dramatic hockey-stick charts you’ll ever see, Pinterest outpaced Facebook, Twitter and every other network in climbing to that momentous milestone. More Active Registered Users Than RedditIt’s been said that men are from Reddit and women are from Pinterest. If that’s so, then it’s clear who’s winning this battle of the sexes. Both sites have around 70 million registered accounts, but this number doesn’t say anything about who’s using the site and how much. Many people sign up for sites never to log in again. According to Reddit’s latest numbers, only 2 million of its 70 million visitors last month were logged in, active users. Meanwhile, a recent study shows that a staggering 20 million of Pinterest’s 70 million registered users pinned, repinned or liked a pin in June. Not bad for a network that’s featured in the news less than half the time. Average Pin Is More Relevant Than Average TweetTraffic wise, Pinterest isn’t going to edge up on Twitter’s 500 million registered users any time soon. But it’s already competing with the microblogging giant for relevancy, and that’s saying something.According to a recent study from analytics and marketing company Piquora, the average tweet remains useful for a matter of minutes. Meanwhile, the average pin remains clickworthy for months. The reason behind this long tail? Pinners are more likely to discover past pins through search, while Twitter users tend to watch tweets blip in and out of their feeds. Pinterest Rules The iPadFacebook may still dominate the iPhone, but according to a study by ShareThis, Pinterest is the top channel for iPad with an almost 50% share of all social activity on the tablet. When you realize that more people use social networks on mobile devices than on computers (a Comscore study says it’s now mobile over 55% of the time), it puts into perspective just how much pinning is going on. So next time you hear somebody talk about this niche social network that’s just for ladies shopping for shoes, you might want to set them straight.Image courtesy Roxanne Ready on Flickr. Correction: The story has been updated to credit ShareThis for conducting the iPad study.

Amit Shahs claims absurd baseless says former BJP state president

first_imgKolkata: Satyabrata Mookherjee, former state president of BJP and former Minister of State felt that party’s national president Amit Shah’s claim that the party will get 23 seats is “absurd and without any basis.”Mookherjee also expressed his displeasure over the virtual sidelining of senior party leaders like Lal Krishna Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi. “Shah’s tall claim that BJP will get 23 seats in Bengal is absurd and baseless,” he said while giving an interview to a vernacular television channel on Monday. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaA statement by Mookherjee just two weeks before the election in Krishnanagar Lok Sabha seat from where he was elected in 1999 has put the state unit of BJP in a spot of bother. In the four-corner-fight in Krishnagar, Mohua Moitra of the Trinamool Congress is fighting against Kalyan Chaubey of BJP, Shantanu Jha of CPI(M) and Intaj Ali Shah of Congress. Mookherjee was the Minister of State for Chemicals and Fertilizers between 2000 and 2002 and later Minister of State for Commerce and Industry between 2002 and 2003. He was a minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ministry. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayKrishnanagar was the red bastion since 1971 when Renu Pada Das was elected four times till 1989. His successor Ajay Mukherjee of CPI(M) was elected from the seats four times between 1989-99. Mookherjee defeated him in 1999. He developed contacts with the people and Krishnanagar became a BJP stronghold. Mookherjee was the state president of the party in 2008 and was replaced by Rahul Sinha in 2009. Asked whether he is taking part in the campaign for Chaubey, Mookherjee said the party has not asked him to take part in the campaign. “It seems that the party thought that seniors cannot give anything anymore so it has kept them out of campaign,” he said. Political experts said Mookherjee’s staying away from the campaign will affect the party’s poll prospects in Krishnanagar. “He has his own pocket votes and workers and these workers which include a large number of local lawyers who had worked for him will not take part in the election. This will put BJP into trouble,” they felt.last_img read more
