Master Plan Re-Examination Workshop
The City is hosting a Master Plan Re-Examination Workshop on Saturday, October 24, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Community Lodge, located at 300 John F. Kennedy Blvd.
A Master Plan Re-Examination Survey was conducted over the last couple of months that allowed the public to share their concerns and suggestions. To gather additional input from the community, the City has scheduled the workshop which is open to the public and we hope there will be many residents, property owners and merchants in attendance.
For additional information, phone Katherine Custer, Community Services Director, at (609) 263-8687, ext. 103.
Beach Fill Update
Tuesday, October 6, 2015
Beachfill operations were halted at the end of August for repairs to the dredge Illinois. The repairs have been completed at a shipyard in Norfolk, VA; however, the dredge has been unable to return to Sea Isle City due to weather conditions. Based on current forecasts, the dredge will head back to New Jersey October 7th, with an expected resumption of beachfill work on October 10th. Work on the beach reconstructing the beachfill discharge pipeline is expected to start October 7th.
All Beach Entrances should remain open for the duration of the down time with the exception of the entrances being reconstructed (see note below about these types of closures).
Beach fill has been completed north of 82nd/83rd Street.
57th St. will still be used as an access and a staging area - proper safety protocol will be in place around this area.
It should be noted that crossovers/entrances are being reconstructed during the week, and some crossovers/entrances behind the fill will temporarily be closed – however, no 2 consecutive crossovers/entrances will be closed at once and no crossover work will occur over the weekend (crossovers are to be constructed shortly after completion of the beachfill at that location).
It should always be noted that the beachfill process could evolve as fill advances - some additional beaches/entrances could close/open between reports.
The project is a 24/7 operation, and will continue around the clock until completion.
