JERSEY CITY – Suntex Marinas announced that company officials will hold a public presentation to outline details of a proposed marina at the southern edge of Liberty State Park.

Although activists and officials from Jersey City sued to stop the project, a Superior Court ruled in mid-January that it could proceed.

The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 10:30 a.m. at Liberty House restaurant, located at the northern end of the park, adjacent to the existing Liberty Landing Marina.

The event will include a presentation from Suntex officials as well as renderings of the proposed marina. There will be a question and answer period to follow.

“This is an opportunity for people to come and learn about the proposal first-hand,” said Suntex Senior Vice President Ron TenEyck. “There has been a lot of misinformation spread about our plan for the southern marina and this is a chance for people to hear exactly what we have proposed.”

Along with the marina, Suntex plans to refurbish the dilapidated public boat launch as well as construct a public fishing pier at the park’s south side. Suntex also will update the popular picnic area at the south end, which over the years has fallen into some disrepair.
