Planning board unanimously approves subdivision plan for four duplexes on property
More than a century of hosting the De La Salle Christian Brothers at Ocean Rest, located at the corner of 31st Street and Central Avenue, will end as a plan to subdivide the property, as seen here from the beach, was approved.
OCEAN CITY – If time hadn’t taken such a toll, the Christian Brothers Ocean Rest Retreat, which has served his organization and the community for more than a century, would serve at least another 100 years, Brother James Martino told members of the Ocean City Planning Board at a Wednesday, June 14 meeting.
Now, the historic structure faces demolition, as the planning board unanimously approved a plan to subdivide the parcel into four duplex lots, granting two bulk variances for lot frontage and width. The Brothers hope to keep at least one, maybe two of the lots depending on market value, Martino said.
