Atlantic City Tourism District boundaries could narrow

    Atlantic City’s state-run tourism district boundaries could change if Susan Ney Thompson has anything to say about it. The interim director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority has suggested moving one of the borders in by 12 blocks to exclude the residential Chelsea neighborhood.

    The CRDA has until April 19 to firm up the boundaries, reports the Press of Atlantic City, and is in agreement with Mayor Lorenzo Langford and some council members about the Chelsea boundary.

    This comes as Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno told a tourism conference today visits to New Jersey climbed 4.6 percent last year, as the Associated Press reports,  and tourism raked in $35.5 billion – a small increase from 2009.

    WHYY’s Phil Gregory will have more on Guadagno’s speech later.
