Battleship panel to visit Bayonne site

By CAROL COMEGNO
Courier-Post Staff

The New Jersey Battleship Commission plans to visit the waterfront in Bayonne as it did in Camden and Jersey City in its quest to find the best floating museum site for the battleship.

Commission Chairman Joseph Azzolina said the tentative date is Sept. 3.

Bayonne officials said that date has yet to be confirmed with the commander of the Military Ocean Terminal, where the city and veterans groups are proposing to dock the battleship.

"Since the commission went to Camden and Jersey City, we wanted them to come here, too," said Nicholas Chiaravallotti, an aide to Bayonne Mayor and Assemblyman Joseph Doria, D-Hudson. "We don't know yet all what the presentation will entail. Because of the way the terminal is constructed, we may be able to offer more than one pier location so the commission has a greater choice in where they want to locate it."

The commission is awaiting final congressional approval for release of the battleship USS New Jersey from the naval reserve fleet in Bremerton, Wash., this fall. The commission hopes to tow the ship back to New Jersey by the end of 1999. Each house passed slightly different resolutions earlier this summer that will be resolved by a conference committee.

The state commission visited Camden July 31 and Jersey City Aug. 7.
