In a recent post on Word at the Shore Sea Bright Officials highlighted the importance of improving the borough’s riverfront and access to it. It went on the outline how they are currently in the permitting process with DEP and how a landscape architect is donating services for a landscaping plan for a proposed new park.
Which got me thinking how is Sea Bright doing it? What do their council agendas/meetings look like and how are they different than ours. So I looked. One of things I noticed is that in 2014 they added workshops to their monthly meetings.
Are they legally “required” to have these meetings, probably not. However these are the topics discussed at their extra meetings: (Taken from March 2014 WorkShop)
