Casino Reinvestment Development Authority plans to help those outside tourism district

    The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority addressed an ongoing concern yesterday of Atlantic City residents living outside the state-run tourism district boundaries. The CRDA says it will assist those living beyond the district’s boundaries.

    CRDA interim Executive Director Susan Ney Thompson said the CRDA has discussed a Community Development Partnership Division that would finance and coordinate quality of life projects outside the district, the Press of Atlantic City reports.

    Those living near the district borders say they’re concerned development decisions will be made by the state with no consideration for residents.
