Marketing Red Banks Business needs a more attractive name...To say you are " Going to The Mall " or Going to The Grove " sounds more of a destination adventure then simply saying " Going to Red Bank ". To just say you are Going to Red Bank isn't catchy to me..Sounds like I am just going there with no real purpose or intent to spend money...Red Bank needs an inviting expirence to want people to come there..

One of the most important changes for downtown business part of Red Bank, is to change the parking meter and parking situation. I live and work in Red Bank, and unless I can walk, I try not to drive to RB as much as possible. The situation deters rather than encourages people from going to RB. It's to hard to find places to park, then on top of that, trying to find where we pay is a huge deterrent!

Perhaps township engineers could review the traffic situation on Broad Street going into Shrewsbury by the Rail Road Tracks, in front of and on both sides of the Foodtown. It's a mess!

I agree with Dee about that traffic juncture. Also, if Red Bank could cover up the empty store fronts with a fabric facade with printing on it, it would keep the town from looking run down and empty. This is done in so many other places as a "blind" to keep the vacant places looking elegant and concealed.

Close off Broad Street from Monmouth Street to Front Street . Make it pedestrian friendly like they have done on parts of NYC streets with landscaping & seating . This would make the downtown more inviting, unique and different from other areas at the shore that Red Bank is competing with for retail traffic such as Asbury Park, PIer Village and The Grove. The number of parking spots lost from this move would be far outweighed by the new number of people that would want to come to Red Bank for its uniqueness . Michael Aufiero Front St Trattoria

Good ideal..I would think the only problem would be the Ambulances going to Riverview..
