The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) approved a purchase of a strip club on Pacific Avenue.
The CRDA Board authorized a $1.3 million fund to buy Delilah’s Den at 2405 Pacific Avenue, right across street from Boardwalk Hall.
Under cover of the Covid chaos, CRDA quietly signed off. Very few members of the public attend CRDA meetings due to inconvenient location and time of meetings.
CRDA Executive Director Matt Doherty says he has letters of support from Mayor Small, Atlantic City PD and Kaleem Shabazz.
Shabazz and Small had no comment when asked if CRDA would continue to pay taxes on the property, or will the property be ‘land-banked’, and not have to pay city taxes.
AC Councilman Kaleem Shabazz frequently shared inaccurate tax information in reference to CRDA, Casinos and Stockton.
Atlantic City taxpayers see no benefit in the purchase of this property. The quality of life in this part of the Tourism District will remain bleak due to rising crime and growth of sober living homes and social services.
