POINT PLEASANT — Point Pleasant Borough officially closed on the purchase of the former Pable-Evertz Funeral Home, solidifying the location of the new recreation and senior center.
Mayor Robert Sabosik signed the paperwork on Monday, officially buying the property for $1,850,000.
The property is a 7,300-square-foot structure that sits on 1.24 acres of land directly behind the school district properties at 901 Beaver Dam Road.
“This has been a long time coming, even though we have tried numerous processes and plans for the old site, it was just too old and too small to do what we want for our growing population,” said Mayor Sabosik.
He also told The Ocean Star that, “I can assure that anyone whose family did help to do anything originally, we will have a dedicated corner for all those families in the new building.”
“Today is an important day for Point Pleasant, for we are going forward with this building to ensure for generations, we will have a new facility that fits the culture of Point Pleasant,” said Mayor Sabosik.
Construction is estimated to last between 24 to 28 months. Mayor Sabosik said all products and equipment associated with renovation and construction will be stored on site.
