Meeting Minutes

Point Pleasant Beach Open Space Advisory Committee

Present: Max Gagnon, Anne Lightburn, Sal Pepe, and Mike Ramos

Absent: Glen Paesano, Mickey Diaz, Greg Cox and Greg Culp, Non-voting members absent Student Representative Cassidy Alia and Councilmen Gordon and Mayer

The minutes of August 8th were accepted as corrected.

Max Gagnon has been contacting universities and colleges to see what architecture support they might provide to keep the total cost of bathhouse repairs as low as possible. Due to the smaller size of the project, Rutgers, would not be interested.
Max volunteered to get a contractor to look at the bathhouse to get an independent evaluation of the cost to repair the bathhouse as outlined in the FEMA project scope of work.
Other costs that remain are flood insurance estimates and maintenance.

There was an unrelated discussion on the fire raging at the Seaside Heights boardwalk.

The committee adjourned at 8:16 pm.

Max Gagnon reported that Glassboro State might be interested in the bathhouse as a project for its architectural students.
1. Anne reported that the borough has not received an estimate for flood insurance. It was pointed out that the bathhouse, with the right repairs, could possibly be eligible for wet proof insurance, which would be at a lower rate. Anne will check with Maryann Ellsworth that she is getting quotes for this condition.
2. The remaining sand under the bathhouse remains an issue and Ray Savacol is working on a plan. It was suggested that the borough look into county help under their Schedule C program. Mickey Diaz will meet with a county person, whom he knows, to see if it is feasible for them to help excavate the sand.
3. Upon discussion, the committee agreed that repairing the bathhouse to its former state or “white box” state would be the most cost effective and one with the least changes that could trigger more costly repairs to meet new guidelines.
4. The committee rejected removing a large section of the back of bathhouse, as sketched by Ray Savacol, to increase parking spaces.
The committee unanimously agreed, as it has in the past, to recommend repairing the bathhouse. Anne to draft a memo to the council, with the committee’s recommendations and discussion points.

Meeting adjourned 8:45 pm
