Officials in Belmar, N.J., are hoping to pass a resolution next month authorizing an agreement between the borough and developers who want to proceed with a $10 million marina redevelopment project that includes shops, restaurants, an outdoor bar and a miniature golf course.

Mayor Matthew Doherty said that if the resolution passes April 4 at the governing body's meeting, the outdoor restaurant/bar and miniature golf course could be up and running by Memorial Day.

Last month, when the project was pitched to the public, several residents said they feared that it would cause traffic congestion on Route 35 and contribute to pollution in the Shark River.
