January 2017 Dennis Township Bike Path Update
  Greetings friends and neighbors! Just want to keep everyone updated on the continuing saga of the Dennis Township portion of the County bike path. Jack Gibson and I traveled to Atlantic City Electric's regional headquarters in Mays Landing on January 11th. This was our second meeting with the ACE staff. Atlantic City Electric still has some concerns about the bike path using their property. Although our plans seem to address these concerns, it was decided that the electric company would send a representative from their Real Estate division to "walk" the stretch of property in question. We feel this will be much more productive than sitting in a meeting room looking at engineering plans. The good news is our County Open Space funding has been approved. Once we get over this hurdle, the first phase of our bike path can get started. Jack Gibson and I are dedicated to seeing this bike path become a reality. Therefore, we realize that after our experience with NJ Transit's constraints on using the rail tracks and Atlantic City Electric's limited enthusiasm, we may have to pursue other possibilities. Once again, thank you for your patience. - Lisa Salimbene.
