Letters

Property Is Clean

Feb 06, 2019

To the Editor:

I am writing regarding the article on Jan. 16 titled “Invitation to Great Wolf Lodge Resorts to Purchase Land in Little Egg Harbor” with interest to correct and clarify details in the last paragraph that are absolutely incorrect.

First, the 68 acres on Route 9, which is commercial land available for sale in Little Egg Harbor next to Walmart, are clean. In 2007, the property received a certification from New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection that the cleanup on the property was completed and it is clean. Little Egg Harbor received notice of this certification in 2007. I attached a copy of the certification for your review.

Second, I want to make it clear: I never asked the town to clean up the property. I did state that someone had dumped trash, which my family is cleaning, and that we will be installing gates, surveillance and monitoring on the site.

Third, Great Wolf Lodge was extremely interested in purchasing the 68 acres in Little Egg Harbor. They completed their preliminary review and requested a letter of interest from Little Egg Harbor with a list of what was required to “put a shovel in the ground” to move to the next step. They did not receive this letter and instead chose a location in Perryville, Md., which has a population the size of LEH.

Last and most important, Committeeman Gormley of LEH established the Commercial Revitalization Group consisting of local business owners. Under his leadership, this advisory group to the mayor and committee are working to  establish an economic development plan to attract and secure quality ratables for the town. This is an important step forward.
