A successful Neighborhood Transformation Plan depends on meaningful input from Asbury Park residents. In the Data Gathering phase, working groups shared information, discussed relevant issues, and helped to generate understanding about the neighborhood’s existing conditions. This will form the basis of the plan moving forward.
Working Groups meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. If you are interested in joining one please fill out the contact form further down the page.

Situated in the City’s southwest quadrant, Asbury Park’s West Side is a neighborhood with challenges and opportunities.
Using a HUD Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant, the Asbury Park Housing Authority and the City of Asbury Park are leading a diverse team of stakeholders and residents to create a collective vision for the West Side. The plan will lay the groundwork for providing equitable housing for the city’s most vulnerable residents, designing amenity-rich pedestrian friendly blocks, and creating tailored supportive services that meet residents’ most pressing needs. Revitalizing Lincoln Village and the West Side will not only increase opportunities for residents, but will also further establish Asbury Park as a vibrant commuter community within the New York Metropolitan Area.
