The highly anticipated master plan that will guide Atlantic City's near future will be released to the public today.
According to Wayne Parry of the Associated Press, the blueprint devised under the aegis of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) focuses on urgently needed cosmetic and quality-of-life upgrades, among them an aggressive street-cleaning program and the removal of anti-crime window barriers on Atlantic Avenue storefronts (read the full story at (http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/sprucing-atlantic-city-goal-tourism-plan-15480776#.TyjRg8WJd2B).
The master plan is part of the Gov. Chris Christie-propelled effort to revive the resort's fortunes. The blueprint also includes the alloting of $30 million annually in marketing funds, the total reorganization of the various public entities that represent the state in Atlantic City and the creation of a special tourism district.
The general consensus is the strategy will easily be approved by the CRDA.
