Planning for 2019 at Money Island

Looking ahead at the planned redevelopment of Money Island, we know that there will be many changes with an uncertain time frame.

The marina is currently closed for permitting. Next year things will be different. This list will change as we get feedback from the state, developers, local government and others. But this is what we see so far for 2019:

Facilities that will be open:



boat launches (defined as the concrete or gravel structures on the ground)





picnic areas

nature walk areas


parking areas


Ice machine

Bait cooler

storage areas

recreational and commercial docks (those not owned by MIM)

water service

Docks not specifically closed by the state

Facilities closed:

ramps on sites designated by the state (defined as the diagonal walkways connecting a stationary dock with a floating dock)

docks closed by the state


fuel system


Grant proposals for Money Island

SBDC logoTwo weeks ago Tony met with the director of the NJ Small Business Development Center at Stockton University to discuss Money Island’s strategic planning for our various businesses. Tangible results are beginning to show.

First, our business plan went through a major update and is available in draft format for public comment. (If you want to see a draft copy, please contact us).

Second, since it is clear that our future depends on success in obtaining government and private sector grants, the SBDC is trying to help us with the grant proposal writing and management process. This is almost a full time job and Tony is already overwhelmed with the first five grant programs wehere we are currently being considered.
