The owner of the former Funtown Pier property will be back in front of the Seaside Park planning board on Tuesday night to pitch a two-story expansion to a splash park proposal to borough officials.

Funtown Pier Associates has applied for permission to build an elevated, two-story deck structure around a splash-water park feature above the associated kiosk and approval to relocate an existing refuse area and ticket booth kiosk within the existing parking area at the north side of Stockton Avenue, planning documents said.

The refuse area is to be relocated and expanded at the northwest corner of the property, adjacent to the existing one-story Verizon use building. The refuse area would be enclosed by a 6-foot high vinyl fence and 7.5-foot high decorative wall and also include an outdoor storage area.

The entire site is located between 1901-19 North Ocean Avenue and 1800 N. Ocean Avenue, and further located on the boardwalk between Ocean Avenue, Farragut Avenue and Porter Avenue.

The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the council meeting room above the police station at Sixth and Central Avenues.

This is the second time Funtown Pier has proposed new improvements to its private beach area this season. In the spring, its owner, William Major, received permission to add new tiki huts and other amenities to the BYOB beach he operates where the pier once stood.
