Beck Attends ‘Springwood Avenue’ Project Groundbreaking After Years of Community Advocacy

Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) on Tuesday, October 10, attended a groundbreaking for The Renaissance Village, an affordable housing project in Asbury Park. Beck and Asbury Park Councilwoman Yvonne Clayton spent years advocating for $8 million in highly competitive funding from the State to bring the project to fruition.

“I am proud to have worked with Councilwoman Yvonne Clayton, the Michael’s Organization, and others to make Renaissance Village possible,” Senator Beck said. “We were able to secure nearly $8 million in highly competitive State funding. Hundreds of applications were sent to the state but only a few received the funding. This project will bring 64 units of needed housing along Springwood Avenue.”

 The groundbreaking was the culmination of many years of collaborative effort between Senator Beck, the Michael’s Organization, Asbury Park City Council, as well as County and State officials. The Renaissance Village will include five buildings and three parcels of land along Springwood and Sylvan avenues in Asbury Park.

“The Renaissance Village and our efforts to redevelop Boston Way total $19.7 million which will provide much needed affordable housing and revitalization to the Asbury Park community,” Senator Beck added. “I am continuing to work with city and state officials on Boston Way and other exciting developments for Asbury.”
