Development Authority Seizes Control of Boardwalk
"In grand Moses style," writes Tom Stoelker, "CRDA, created in January, took control of a large swath of the city on May 1, including the entire Boardwalk, the Marina District, the convention center, an outdoor mall called The Walk, and a 143-acre former airport known as Bader Field."
The move seizes control of the district from Atlantic City planners and government.
Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford says in the article:
"...if there's anything in the city that has worked well it has been planning and zoning."
