CRDA Proposes New Land Regulations for Atlantic City's Aging 'Tourism District'

Last Edited:

The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) is one step closer to rolling out new land-use rules and regulations for the Atlantic City Tourism District.

On Wednesday, October 4th, the CRDA held the first of two public hearings for proposed rules and regulations that would change zoning in the area.

The proposed rules would revamp the outdated regulations currently in place in hopes of encouraging more development projects and investment opportunities to come to the city in the future.

"This will change the zoning throughout the Tourism District," " said Lance Landgraf, director of planning and development for the CRDA. "[And] in our opinions and our consultant's opinion ... it will better prepare the city for newer development, [becoming] more open to development, and [offers] a more streamlined application and development process."

The CRDA will hold its next public hearing meeting on Tuesday, October 10th, at 6 p.m. in room 404 of the Atlantic City Convention Center.

Officials are encouraging residents to attended to give them input.
