SOUTH AMBOY – South Amboy’s city council passed a resolution authorizing the creation of an arts district in the city’s downtown area.

The art program’s home base will be located next to the train station on Broadway across from City Hall. The district will run from Main Street to Bordentown Ave. and will circle around the high school and theater.

The city hopes that the arts district will bring in new tourists and businesses to the downtown area. They also urge residents who own businesses within the arts district to promote and maintain activities and events that come into town.

City Engineer Mark Rasimowicz also gave updates to a few projects happening around South Amboy.

According to Rasimowicz, the city recently completed repaving Raritan Street, Macedulski Terrace, the 500 block of Catherine Street and a portion of Lefferts Street. He also noted that the ongoing project of Barkalow Street, Charmellow Drive, Lovely Drive, and Grace Drive completed concrete work and the city will be reconstructing and repaving the roadway in the next few weeks.

Rasimowicz also added that a bid for the reconstruction of the Sixth Street tennis courts has gone out and they will look to award the bid at the next city council meeting.

All council members were in attendance for the meeting. The next city council meeting will be held on June 15th at 7:00 p.m.
