CARTERET - The borough of Carteret is taking the next step to redevelop the community.

The latest initiative for the borough includes cleaning up the riverfront area to make way for a municipal marina.

The Waterfront Park already has playgrounds for kids, fishing piers and miniature golf courses.

The Army Corps of Engineers recently issued a final permit to the borough to begin construction on the marina.

Carteret Mayor Daniel Reiman says that the borough plans on beginning remediation, dredging and construction this summer.

The marina project will be funded through federal, state and county grants.
