After being underutilized for so many years, Atlantic City’s Historic Gardner’s Basin has the potential to become the jewel in the crown.

We have learned and confirmed that a Stockton University study, funded in part by former New Jersey Senator Bill Gormley, his wife Ginny, and others has been completed.

No one with direct knowledge of the Gardner’s Basin marine study will officially comment about its content at this time.

However, we have confirmed that the soon-to-be-released report appears to conclude that Stockton University can unleash its potential by achieving a major marine science presence at Gardner’s Basin.

It will also achieve a more than 50-year goal of completing Gardner’s Basin.

Gardner’s Basin was named after former Atlantic City Mayor and New Jersey State Senator John J. Gardner.

Previously, Stockton University President Harvey Kesselman has promised us an interview when the report content is released to the public. Make no mistake about it, Stockton University possesses all of the experience necessary and the pedigree required to take Gardner’s Basin to the next level. Stockton University is a prohibitive favorite at this time to expand its Atlantic City footprint in a big way.

This is a major developing story, with wide-ranging implications. We’ll provide updates as warranted.
