Atlantic Highlands is receiving approximately $300,000 to construct an athletic field in town, according to Mayor Pete Donoghue.
Donoghue briefly discussed the matter before the council’s May 23 session.
The borough is receiving the sum from Conover Realty and Middletown Township, as part of an agreement between the parties to facilitate a Route 36 building project on the Atlantic Highlands-Middletown border.
As part of the agreement, Conover Realty has paid $125,000 to the borough, while Middletown is responsible for paying the balance of the sum.
Donoghue said a site for the proposed athletic field has not been decided upon in town, though the administration is discussing several options available to the community.
